Hello...

I just bought a 2016 TLX Tech. I'm new to Acuras. I have been following and lurking here for a little bit. Thought I'd throw my hat in the ring and join in some discussions. My TLX is already showing some of the "commonly known" issues I've seen here. It's got the 70MPH vibration and the weird shifting transmission. It's currently in the shop getting looked at. Been there 3 days now. They say they're going to call Acura techline to get a game plan together. They've already done one TSB, not sure which one...didn't fix it. I hope it gets worked out; I enjoy everything else about the car.

Welcome to the forum.


Glad you’re not one of those who expect perfection from their Acura. Not going to happen……


Nice bunch of people here. I see you already jumped right in. Perhaps post a few pictures of your vehicle too.


I’ll be coming to Branson MO to see the some shows this summer. Always wanted to see the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede. I’ve been wanting to see that show because of the horses. I also have horses.

Crash,

You'll really enjoy the Dixie Stampede show. It's lots of fun and the food is great. I'll work on getting some pics of my new ride on here. Honestly haven't taken any pictures yet, it's THAT new.

Let me know if you'd like to meet up for a coffee or something while you're here. And if you want any more ideas on stuff to do here in Branson, let me know. Thanks for reaching out...

AWS or AWD? 4 or 6? My '16 AWS Tech 6 has none of these issues.

I'm in a 2016 V6 SH-AWD Tech. It's been at the dealership for 4 days now. I'm going to get more info today as to what they've tried so far. I was told they applied one TSB with no success. Vibration is still there. I'm happy they're at least trying. I told them about the shifting issues and asked them to apply the transmission TSB while it's there. Not sure when I'll be getting my car back. Just sitting here being all patient and stuff.

The loaner I'm in is a 2017 V6 SH-AWD advanced. It also has the vibration and noticeable downshift problem. Weird...

AWD. Sounds like it is specific to that, as not seeing AWS's with these issues.

Oops. The loaner is actually a 2016 just like mine. Except the advanced package and mine is the tech. I've been in communication with the dealership. They say they've done the TSB's. The next step they are going to try is replacing my axles with known good non-vibrating ones...
