my 2004 acura tl came equipped with bridgrstone el-42 turanza tires. although we have not had an accident, these tires hydroplane like crazy and have zero snow traction and control. they are so bad that we paid to have all 4 replaced at 20,000 miles. i now find that this is a very common issue with this tire, although our dealer claims otherwise. i feel that these tires are patently unsafe and acura or bridgestone should recall and replace them. *ak

during routine oil change on our 2004 acura tl at 12,000 miles, excessive tread wear was noted by acura mechanic on front oem bridgestone turanza el42 tires. tire size is p235/45r17 (this complaint form did not have the correct size option to select). said tires should be replaced. finding it hard to believe these tires would last only 12,000 miles, we got a 2nd opinion by a non-acura garage and they agreed tires were worn and should be replaced. acura said premature wear was most likely due to "front end being out of alignment" or possibly "wrong tire pressure" (later found not to be the case when acura replaced the tires). no mention of any problems with tires themselves. trusting acura's experience and expertise, we purchased and had them install two new el42s. since then, we have learned that we are just one of many to have quality and safety problems with these tires. read the many bad customer reviews/ratings reported on www.tirerack.com (enter "2004 acura tl" in the "shop for tires" section, and read "tire reviews for this vehicle"). luckily, we have not experienced the poor traction, hydroplaning, noise, flat-spotting, etc that others have experienced.

this complaint is in reference to the bridgestone turanza el 42 tire supplied as original equipment on the 2004 acura tl. this tire is totally unsuitable for the vehicle and is unsafe for the intended conditions. although it is rated ms as an all season tire, it can not maintain even minimal traction in light snow. also, as the tread wears, it show significant tendencies to hydroplane in any amount of standing water. the flat spotting also creates distracting vibrations during cold weather. this vehicle is unsafe to drive with this tire installed, yet acura and bridgestone refuse to acknowledge or address the problem unless directed to by nhtsa. *nm
