Acura TL Squeaks and Rattles
I know from my own experience that the TL is not immune to interior squeaks/rattles, especially the third generation, and hardware issues; so I thought current TL owners could post their problems and maybe have other people respond with possible suggestions
Just to start off, I noticed that consumerreports.org has added a squeak/rattle category to their reliability chart for each automobile and that from 2006-2008 model year TLs, they got rated a mediocre average for squeak/rattles while almost a perfect much above avg in all other categories
I personally had a 2006 TL for two years and had absolutely no problems with it; like it so much and the improvements Acura made to it that I now have a 2008 TL; since day one, I have been having the complete opposite experience with my 2008 then I did with my 2006
From the beginning I had a rattle/squeaky noise coming from somewhere in the moonroof housing between the actually ceiling of the car and the moonroof sunshade; I had my car in four separate times to two separate Acura dealers to try and get this noise solved and even after removing the shade and replacing it, resealing and greasing the entire assembly and adding extra Velcro and sound material the noise remained; the only thing that could be done is to have my car tied up for at least 4-5days and have the entire roof and moonroof ripped apart and replace but I am not willing to do that; luckily with this noise I was able to get a simpler solution, a cheap tiny cushion placed in between the shade and the ceiling housing takes the noise away and if I want to open the moonroof I just remove the cushion and then put it back when I'm done using the moonroof
Unfortunately, the last few months, I have developed a loud creaking/clicking/rattling vibration intermittently on the passenger side of the dash or upper corner panel of the passenger front door; I have to take it back for the third time to try and get it solved after two failed attempts at getting rid of it with fixing the alignment of the dash and replacement of the glove box
Hopefully third time will be the charm with this because I am beginning to become tired and frustrated having to deal with these squeaks/rattle in an almost 34k dollar luxury sedan; just totally unacceptable on Acura's part and where is their quality control in their US Assembly Plants??
Please feel free to comment on my situation if you want or describe and vent your frustrations with your TL's squeak/rattle issues!!
