2003 Acura TL 3 (79K miles) - Major Repair work
December 3, 2018
I bought my Acura new in 2003. There was an design flaw on the older model TL's (and older Accords). The A/C line drips water on the metal subframe which causes rusting and an, eventually, unsafe vehicle. An expensive repair, especially, if there is other major repair work. I also needed rusting fuel/break lines replaced and rear break pad/rotor/caliper replaced. I knew the history of my car, so I decided to fix it. Cars are an expense, that is all there is to it! Since this is the case, I appreciate the high quality and reliable work of the technicians. The work at Acura is warrantied. They won't retire or close up shop. Like other Acura TL owners, I reported this design flaw to the NHTSA. If you sign up, they will notify you of a recall. One must go to a certified dealer for any reimbursement. The A/C drain is now rerouted, so this won't happen again. Special thanks to Colin for your communication, follow through, and educational information. Special thanks to Steve for all your quality and skilled work. Special thanks to Kevin for finding high quality aftermarket subframe and for having the parts there. Also... Thank you Adam, in service, for your kind welcome when I arrived. Thank you Roni, receptionist, for her understanding. Thank you Dan, service, for his time and assistance.
