2015 Acura TLX Under Stop Sale Over Transmission Issue 08-12-2014

Saffran Use Car
The Japanese automaker has told its dealers to stop selling the 2015 TLX sedan and has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of a recall notice that will affect approximately 9,500 units of the TLX equipped with a V6 engine. The issue involves the transmission indicator displaying "Park" without the transmission actually engaging park. According to Acura, during manufacturing of the nine-speed transmission, there was a possibility that contamination could cause the parking pawl not to engage or the park rod could have been damaged during assembly. As a result, the park rod could dislodge, preventing the transmission from shifting into the Park position. Increasing the risk of a crash, the TLX's shift indicator will display "Park" even though the Park Lock is not engaged, which will allow the vehicle to roll away. NHTSA has not yet confirmed the recall but Acura's notice to the agency is the first step in the formal recall process.
