2003 Acura TL Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura TL? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my TL's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Acura TL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
