TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Acura 3.2tl. The contact stated that the interior day/night rear view mirror switch was leaking an unknown chemical. When the chemical leaked out, the ability to switch between the day and night option was lost. The contact called the dealer but was advised that there were no related recalls to the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer stated that because the vehicle was outside the warranty, they could offer no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 48,000 and the current mileage was approximately 50,000. Updated 01/04/11 the consumer stated when the mirror was working properly it automatically adjusted for lighting. There is no manual adjustment available as with traditional day/night rear-view mirrors. The only option left was to move the mirror into a position where the lighting was no distracting.
