Acura Tlx owners manuals
- Acura TLX owners of the 2015 model complained about problems of the 9-speed transmission.

The Acura TLX is a compact executive car produced by Acura, the luxury division of Honda, since 2014. The TLX was presented as the "TLX Prototype", designed in Los Angeles, as a replacement of the TL and TSX sedans. In April 2014 the production version was revealed at New York International Auto Show.
The standard TLX is equipped with a 206-hp four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain is only available with front-wheel drive but includes a rear-wheel-steering system that can slightly turn the rear wheels. The engine of the V-6 develops 290 horsepower paired with a nine-speed automatic. The V-6 is available with Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) a system that can commute power to each wheel separately as needed, improving traction and handling.
The TLX ships with a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine or a more powerful, less economical V-6. The former has among the best EPA ratings (37 mpg), while the latter accounts for worst numbers (31 mpg).
