TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles
Vehicle is a 2000 Acura 3.2tl with 25,000 miles. Car "immobilizer" (anti-theft) system activated preventing car from starting. All keys locked out, so system itself at fault. There was no attempt to steal car (it was parked in garage at the time). If this had happened in a remote area, driver and passengers would have been stranded. Acura said that the only solution was to have car towed to dealership. I believe the anti-theft system is faulty and should be recalled for replacement or removal.
