Default Vibration at acceleration on a 2008 Acura TL?

At moderate acceleration and before the transmission shifts up to 2nd gear there is a noticeable noise and vibration. The dealer says that it is a characteristic of the model, I say not. Any feed back would be appreciated.

yea, you are probably right - a brand new Acura shouldn't be doing that - take it to a mechanic who specializes in luxury vehicles and then make the dealer pay your bill when you find out what's wrong

It's a new car, I'd take it back to the dealer or take it to another dealer and have them take a look at it

ask to drive another car.. maybe even a few more to see if that is true... it might be in need of a warranty claim, or perhaps you are looking to far into the matter and that really is how it is

does not sound right to me-I own a tsx but did have a 2008 TL as a loaner car. I had it overnight and drove it 500+ miles-did not do it. Go back to the dealer and ask to drive another 2008 TL. Good luck

I agree with the others. Drive another 08 and see if it is the same. Ask to have the Shop Foreman or Service Manager go with you. If they won't, ask to speak with the Acura District Rep when he is at the dealership. I own a 04 TL and have not had this (or anyother) problem. Good Luck!

1st Acura is not a luxury car is just a high end Honda.2nd They do have some crummy tranies...Complaint enough they will hear you. Beside, how come you did not noticed that problem before you bought it? Anyway, the dealer is giving you the run-a-rounds.

It's either one of three things to me. 1. The wheels are not balanced properly, causing the vibrations.2. You got a bad example of an Acura TL (go to the dealer and change it)3. You are experiencing for the first time what having too much power being sent to the front wheels instead of the rear wheels is like (torque steer)Good luck, a nice new car shouldn't cause the owner problems.
