problem #1

Nov 102010

TL 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
Our 2008 Acura TL and almost every Acura TL I see has a problem or is developing a problem with the seals of the headlights. The vehicle is equipped with hid headlights. The problem starts with a small discoloration or fog on the inside of the headlight lens cover, and expands with time. The discoloration or fog lessens the intensity of the headlights, cutting back on visibility and illumination. The dealer said the fog in the headlight problem is local to Arizona only. Really? I would like ntsb or responsible Agency to determine if this is a factory defect and if a recall should be ordered to replace the headlight housing. As I mentioned, I see this problem on most Acura Tls that I see on the street.
