various problems with the 2001 acura tl. bought used and has been in shop 6 or 7 times in less than one year. brakes, transmission replacement, master cylinder. brakes continue to seemingly have a problem...you have to almost go to the floor to stop, but dealership says this is normal on this type of vehicle. true or not-i don't know. also, the check engine light keeps coming on, also the abs and tc lights keep coming on. also, it does not make sense that my car now has 50,000 miles on it when i hardly go anywhere. it seems the odometer is very inaccurate. there is no way i have put 30,000 miles on this car since april of 2003. could not find any other information concerning the odometer issue, but was told by a mechanic that it's possible their could be a speed sensor issue in the transmission, which would also cause the check engine light to come on. *la

i purchased my 2001 acura new in july of 2000. over its life time of three years & 37k miles its had the brakes worked on four times. *break pads replace four times *rotors machined down twice *rotors replaced twice basically during normal rapid braking the cl's steering wheel shakes rapidly. acura had stood behind there product and replaced the rotors and pads at no charge. one major safety problem early on, is there was a problem with the brakes. the brakes just didn't feel like they could stop the car. i know until the brakes were replaced i was driving a totally unsafe car that could not stop as it should. even now after replacing the brakes so many times if do rapid braking the wheel will shake. i feel the cl's brakes are inadequate for the size, weight and horsepower of the automobile. if the brakes were engineered correctly, the first replacement pads and rotors would have solved the problem. i have owned many cars over the years, i own a 95 acura integra & a 94 nissan pathfinder. no matter how i drive these cars or any other car, the wheel never shakes during any braking. my 95 acura integra has 110k miles and the brake pads have been replaced twice due to the fact they were worn out. the rotors have never needed to be replaced. thank you for your concern with my problems with my acura cl. if i can be of further assistance please contact me via email or telephone. eric correa

i purchased a new acura 3.2cl type s with a 6 speed manual transmission on 5/24/03. in 6/16/04 with 14,396 miles i had to have the front rotors resurfaced and my brake pads replaced with updated pads per tsb01-017 because of extreme vibration while braking (out of round rotors due to over heating). this was done at no charge under warranty. on 4/26/05 (less than one year later) with 26,097 miles, acura resurfaced the rotor as a "good will gesture" at no charge because of extreme vibration while braking again. i was advised that the next time i would have to pay for the repairs. now 10/25/06 with 34,500 miles i'm replacing the brake rotors and pads with brembo rotors and pads not oem because of the same reason. in 2004 acura tl's with manual transmissions had bigger rotors and pads. probably to correct the design problem that surfaced with 2003 manuals. *nm
