Acura TLX sales stopped over rollaway fears
Posted on December 9, 2014 by Brandon Turkus
A bad indicator that could convince customers that affected cars are in park, even when they aren't, has pushed Acura to issue a stop-sale for the V6-equipped TLX sedan. The company has already alerted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the potential safety defect.
According to Consumer Reports, the defect is being blamed on unnamed transmission components in the nine-speed-automatic transmissions, which were damaged during assembly. A representative from Acura confirmed to CR that a more complete statement would be coming once the case can be reviewed by NHTSA.
At this point, this case isn't a full recall, although it seems quite likely that's the direction it will take. Stay tuned for more.Permalink | Email this | Comments
