    I would never buy a TL before 07. Those trannys are made of glass and are on borrowed time if they haven't failed yet.

    Great video... spot on with everything. Scotty Kilmer will tell you whoever had your tl before you probably didnt do oil changes as required an wore the engine. I got the base manual, with 185K miles... doesnt burn a drop of oil. I only use synthetic and still change at the reminder to prevent engine wear and oil burning.

    Additional tidbits: Automatics- change your pressure switch sensors 04-06 auto has a transmission filter, change that too, only do AT fluid drain do not ever flush it. Interior lights for buttons tend to burn out fast Rear dash tend to fade as well Aspec 04-06 wheels > types s waffles 😤

Its the aspec and has the lip kit like urs it was a bitch to find it though. They do suck on gas mileage. Lol. Thats a sweet car! Carid.com sale the interior front dash kit. I got green digi camo on mine and its sweet!. I love those cars bro . I dont what it is but i dont think acura will never make a aspec model like the 3rd tl gen.

    I have a 2006, automatic, never had any trouble. I did have the code which indicates a misfire at 140k, but that's a false that is well known. (Just update the ECU at a dealer). A second solution is to change the spark plugs, which i did. And I had to change the battery a month ago (it was the original!). And now there's clinging sound at the back. I from experience that it is the shock upper plate. But again, its the original so... Usually, I agree that you should avoid the first generation of any model, from any manufacturer. But in this case, if you know your stuff, you should know that the first model of the TL has been overengineered to compete with Mercedes/BMW and Audi. So it doesn't apply at all.

    CHECK the SPARK PLUGS. (Tightness) I had one shoot clean out of the head and pull the threads with it. It started out as a *ticking* sound. That sound isn’t possibly just valves. Almost lost a second one too but recognize the familiar ticking the second time. Plug was fingertip loose.

      @Marc Joneswhen it comes to these cars if you're looking at the 04-06 models ONLY buy a Manual the automatic TL's between 04-06 have the same Automatic transmission as the 99-03 TL and 99-04 Odyssey they never fail to fail so when your looking at the earlier ones only buy manual Honda did a refresh For the 07 model year and one thing that they fixed was completely getting rid of That joke of a transmission entirely and put in the RL's automatic transmission for the 07 and 08 TL's manual transmissions for those years were only available in the Type S model

    Power steering pump leaks often Coolant recovery tank plastic cap breaks easy, it’s not a big deal unless the elbow fitting breaks, then it’ll leak. Other than the Bluetooth draining the battery, don’t use the tape deck ever, not even for an auxiliary converter because if it gets stuck, it’ll drain the battery too. Theirs a few places where oil commonly leaks and two of them are expensive as hell to repair.

    Type s is only made 07-08 auto and manual . 04-06 comes only in base trim and a spec trim . 07-08 comes in base or type S body kit . There is no aspec for 07-08 . You can buy the aspec kit or type s kit . This guy said different on trims and other things . He needs to do more research then come back to ur channel and talk about it .

I also feel any manual TL is way better than the autos, I don't agree that the 07 manual is faster or better ,especially when you hear about ppl with 07 claiming they are slow while ppl w 05 claim they are faster. Wich is true the 05 Tl manual is a way diff animal, and I'd run any stock Type S anyday..💪💪😂😂

Got rid of it tho unfortunately worst decision I’ve made this car truly is a great. , might get another in the future . BUT THE MOST COMMOM problem I had was the battery dying on me all the lights would turn on but car would not turn and start . After unplugging the Bluetooth module never died again . Golden .
