MARKHAM, ON – Dec. 22, 2014 – Acura will voluntarily recall 1,995 units of 2015 model-year TLX V6 vehicles in Canada to inspect and, if necessary, replace the automatic transmission, free of charge. Manufacturing process issues could result in the 9-speed automatic transmission not properly shifting into Park after selecting the Park position. If the parking brake is not applied by the driver and the transmission cannot be shifted into Park, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of an accident. No accidents or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
Acura is announcing this recall to encourage all owners who purchased an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification to do so from Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin in early January. In addition, owners of these vehicles can determine if their vehicles require repair by going to www.acura.ca/recalls or by calling (844) 888-5605. Until inspections are completed, Acura encourages all drivers of affected cars to engage the electric parking brake whenever parking their vehicles according to the instructions outlined in the Owner’s Manual.
