Accurate Repairs for Your Amazing Acura
Long Live Luxury
Released in 1986, Acura was the first Japanese luxury auto line. While the first owners likely fell in love with the cars, the brand probably continued gaining market traction for its reliability and longevity. It has a reputation for overall low maintenance costs and is predicted by many mechanics to last for about 20 years or 300,000 miles. Keeping your Acura in prime condition, of course, entails proper preventive maintenance service and timely repairs. For these, depend on Union Line Garage in Pennington, New Jersey.

The Most Frequent Acura Repairs
As solid as the Acura automotive line is like any vehicle makes, it has a few problems that seem to crop up more often than others. Our experienced mechanics can assist you with a full range of Acura repairs, but we’ll outline the most common. One of the most noted issues is excessive oil consumption across multiple models. Specifically, the oil level declines much more than expected between regularly scheduled oil changes in some vehicles. Since a sufficient supply of oil is critical to safe, efficient engine operation and lifespan, it’s important to keep the oil checked in your Acura, topping it off as needed. The motor most prone to sudden oil deficits (the V6 J-Series) is found in the 2009-2014 TL, 2008-2014 MDX, 2010-2014 TSX, and the 2011-2012 RL. Another complaint filed more often than expected centers around transmission failure. The TL, TLX, and MDX vehicles exhibit the most automatic transmission troubles. The problems vary, including slipping gears, jerking when moving between gears, and complete transmission failure. Therefore, the solutions vary accordingly, too. Possible fixes could be reprogramming, transmission fluid flush, or wiring harness replacement, among other repairs. Premature brake wear is another complaint, particularly in the 2009-2010 TSX. It typically begins as squeaking that quickly progresses to require repair. Finally, some drivers express concern over electronic issues inside the passenger cabin.
