Report: Acura TLX sales brought to a halt after rollaway concerns

Acura’s new TLX sedan comes with an in-house nine-speed automatic transmission, which is Honda’s first new transmission since their six-speed automatic in 2010. Prior to that, Honda really pulled the strings on the life of their five-speed automatic for more than a decade.

And because this is a new transmission for Honda, Acura’s first use of the new nine-speed automatic is experiencing rollaway issues, due to defective “unnamed transmission components,” according to Consumer Reports. Acura already called upon the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to notify them of the potential defect.

The TLX hasn’t been recalled yet, but one could be looming.
