Those OG of you might remember that my 2000 TL also had a transmission failure. I am pissed beyond all belief. I was cruising on a local highway on my way home from an errand and the thing basically lost it's gear, and picked another (much too low) gear, causing me to nearly hit a car in front of us. I own an extended warranty to 100,000 miles or 2008 on it, so I call the dealer expecting good service, and they tell me I will have to deal with it until they can get me a loaner in A WEEK OR TWO. 25k car + 1k for extended transmission = NOTHING. I'm done with Acura after this car. ACURA ACE, my advice to you is this, I bought this car for work, for driving to palces and for being reliable. This is the SECOND TIME I have been proved otherwise. Don't make my mistake.
