  1. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    Was that for an AWD MDX (responding to TLXVA)?
  2. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    At 30K seemed odd when they suggested it that day, and with further research I can see that it was absolutely not the right thing for them to suggest. Thanks for your comment, further underscores the outrage I'm feeling toward my local Acura dealer service department.
  3. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    I also thought that 30K was much too early for the first transmission fluid change. Another dealer I called (the day after) basically said "unless the maintenance minder light came on for a "3" service, or if you'd been having transmission issues, you should not have had the fluid replaced that...
  4. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    That really is the very point.. There was no notification, merely the B1 service minder. As I sat in the waiting room they said that I should get the transmission fluid change, as I'd hit 33K miles. I was surprised that it would be required or suggested so early, and also had never seen the...
  5. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    Yes, I'd seen that the other day. Hence, the "3" maintenance minder would show up when the transmission fluid ought to be changed, right (putting aside this question of changing sooner depending on driving conditions)? Or is that not a maintenance minder that is triggered (as the other ones are...
  6. Lease or buy?

    Acura TLX Dealers & Pricing
    I drive my TLX 10-12K per year, and usually purchase and keep my cars for five years or so. I've started to think that it might make more sense to trade more often, maybe 36 months on a lease rather than buy and trade at five years. Thoughts?
  7. Transmission fluid replacement - timing and cost

    TLX Maintainenance & Service
    Recently brought my 2015 TLX AWD (33K miles) into the dealership for a B 1 service. An hour in they came up to me and recommended that I also do the transmission fluid replacement, which "Acura suggests at 30K miles." And they charged me $399 for the transmission fluid replacement service...
  8. Idles stop on SH-AWD?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Even better, a software update rather than having to wait for Acura to get this "right" on the next TLX.
  9. Idles stop on SH-AWD?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Idle stop is an interesting concept, but it really should be easier to deactivate via a user preference setting rather than having to select each time I drive. It's my one 'nit' in an otherwise wonderful car. Love my TLX, 3 months old.
  10. Comments: 2015 Acura TLX Technical Service Bulletins and Recalls

    TLX Recalls
    Apparently we won't know until Jan 6 2015 whether our vehicle was affected. Personally, I love this car and would buy it all over again. I'd tell friends to go in and try to pre-order one now, use this recall issue as a negotiating point to get a better price. I happened to pay full price in...
  11. Spare tire kit?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Purchased the optional spare tire kit when I bought the car, 3 weeks ago. Dealer told me they don't have them in stock, and still don't. This seems odd. Anyone else running into this? I'm in the Boston area. Trying to be patient, but my luck ...
  12. Remote Start Range

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Many thanks, Amnesia. Exactly the question, and exactly what I was looking for.
  13. Remote Start Range

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Re the remote start: if I have this added, and get the remote start fobs, will my regular fobs still work? There will be seasons when I just don't need/want the remote start, and would prefer to not carry around such a big fob. Picky, I know ...

    Yes, I did trade in the RL. Thought the dealer gave me a fair price and it just made the transaction a lot easier.

    Just signed for my 2015 TLX AWD Tech, picking up Friday morning. Tough to say goodbye to my 2005 RL, but looking forward to it. Black copper with parchment interior. Wanted to go for the Advance package, none available in colors I'd want, and decided it wasn't worth the wait.
