Actually, the recall did not affect any Acura vehicles aside from the 2001/2002 MDX.TDIBUGMAN said:oh yeah - just avoid the automatics. Honda/Acura just announced a recall of ALL 5 speed automatics form the past two years, including the 04's, installed in Odysseys, Pilots, and Acuras.
As you see in the post...I'm wasn't really impressedflipsauce said:http://www.clubb5.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=69874&highlight=Honda_to_VW said:
Actually, the TSX is a European Accord w/ more HP and a different dash. The TL is built off of the global midsize platform, but is NOT a rebadged Euro Accord. In fact, it is the only Acura product I know of that was designed solely for the North American market and isn't rebadged as a Honda somewhere else. (If I recall correctly the previous TL was sold as a Honda Inspire elsewhere in the world, but the new Inspire is essentially a U.S. Accord w/ more features and a different grill).Der Meister said:The styling tries way too hard to be edgy.
Better than an Altima, but it's the European Accord.
When's Honda going to offer AWD?
actually it does 0-60 in 6.3 seconds with the 5 speed auto...SDPassatT said:Also, for such a performance-marketed car, and 270 hp/238 lb-ft, the manual only does 0-60 in 6.75 seconds, which is about as fast as an APR chipped 1.8T.
Actually for now, only the new Outback will recieve the updatd 3.0 H6 engine, it will make 250hp @6,600 219lb/ft @ 4,200 -vs- the 212hp 217lb/ft it previously made. Variable valve timing along with increased breathing accounts for the increas in horsepower.D.Passat00 said:legacy is nice! the 6 cylinder is supposed to be around 250hp. i'd rather have a G35 though. can't go wrong with 280 HP 8)
TDI,TDIBUGMAN said:Well, even as a new 9-3 owner, I still like the TL. Not LOVE, like the 9-3, but like. For whatever reason, the advertised hp just doesn't feel like it has almost 100 more than my Saab. And while solid, still doesn't have the "feel" of a European car (insert your generic GM comment here).
Oh yeah, thanks for all of the 9-3 compliments
Also I read through the press release, and like jwaters said, the TL is not affectedTDIBUGMAN said:oh yeah - just avoid the automatics. Honda/Acura just announced a recall of ALL 5 speed automatics form the past two years, including the 04's, installed in Odysseys, Pilots, and Acuras.
^perfect example of somthing else that should of been a recall, but wasn't...upshot said:I love my 99 2.8 A4 QMS... It has the same quirks as the passat but has a solid ride. Got it a year ago at 60k did the timing belt and now I'm replaceing all the control arms
