problem #1

Nov 242018

TLX Sh Awd A-spec V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,783 miles

Sitting at an intersection waiting to turn, car not warmed up so 'idle engine stop not enabled' light changes so we lift off the brake to proceed and the engine simply dies. No restart, message is 'place car in park'. Do that and it starts and off we go after about 20 seconds. This happened a few days prior but wasn't really thinking it was the car and thought it was something we did. Tried to recreate it, hit the ignition button and the car is smart enough to go from Drive to Park so this wasn't the issue. The car simply stalled.

Dropped back at dealer and told them our relationship with this car is at an end. They rented us a car and they have replaced several items as well as reinstalled all the software...they are unsure if this will resolve it but they did get a code when they checked, so they know we aren't making this up. Had this car for 13 months and it's been in for issues 5 times plus 1 service, so 6 times in 1 year...this is not Honda/Acura reliability.
