2002 Acura TL
The aftermath of purchasing a used car.
I love the fact that you can drive it as an automatic or a standard.
The most important thing about my car is that it is extremely reliable.

Recall Jan 16, 2019Report Receipt Date:Jan 16, 2019NHTSA Campaign:01V166002Summary:The following vehicles were repaired with incorrect parts: model year (MY) 2002 Acura 3.2TL sedans with replacement buckles installed per recall 01V-166001; certain MY 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as product update repairs; and certain MY 2000-2002 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as warranty or collision repairs. Repairs were made from March 9 through July 27, 2001. Some of the noncompliant buckles were mislabeled and redistributed to Acura dealers to be used as recall repair parts. Honda also determined that incorrect front seat belt buckle replacement parts were used for some product update repairs of 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles, and warranty or collision repairs of 2000-2002 3.2TL vehicles. These seat belt buckles might not comply with requirements of FMVSS No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may experience some difficulty in unfastening the belt after the crash.Remedy:Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front seat belt buckles. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 20, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion and other factors, including manufacturing variability that, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.Consequence:In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.Remedy:Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag inflator, free of charge.

Vehicles that, on or after September 12, 2014, received a remedy for a prior driver frontal air bag inflator recall already received an inflator of a different design, and therefore are not included in this recall and do not require additional servicing.
