Acura TL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
As a mid-size luxury car, Acura TL pursues high performance, which results in a lot of problems as well. Based on Acura TL's drivers' experience, here are the most common problems happened to TL:
First, excessive oil consumption. To be honest, it is nearly an inevitable problem for most luxury cars. According to Acura TL owners, except for that, the engine performance would suffer such as bad gas mileage, overheating, strange noises, dropping oil pressure and misfiring. What's more, obvious leaking oil can be found in the front of the motor. It is no wonder that it is consuming such a lot of oil. In order not to waste your money, you had better have a check at oil filter or oil pressure switch, timing belt A/C idler pulley, radiator or radiator hose, fan motor, water pump and so on.
Second, braking system issue. This issue has attached a lot of attention as it is very important in safety. As its wearing speed often has something with its used times, Acura TL drivers complained that they had to replace brake pad set regularly.
Except for above auto parts, wiper blade is not only important but also easy-to-wear. Once you find it works not as usual, please make sure the wiper arm and wiper blade are at the best condition. And fresh, heathy air should rely on a proper operated cabin air filter. For some fans of Acura TL, emblem is also their favorite part.
