problem #2

Jul 182005

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
The front disc brakes rotors on the 2002 Acura TL wear unevenly or swell in the heat. This causes the steering wheel of the car, and thus the car, to shake during stops. This condition happens while stopping slowly or quickly. This condition is unsafe. We have taken our car in 4 times to have the rotors ground and each time there has been someone else waiting in the service department with the same problem. The problem goes away after servicing but always returns. Acura has refused to acknowledge a problem with these rotors.

I am on my tenth transmission on an '02 Acura TL type S. Acura is well aware of the problem and will do nothing but continue to put in bad trannies. Someone needs to stop this before someone gets killed!
