Well you will still see the problem on anyone with a '00 - '03 TL/CL because the problem was never fixed. By the time it was discovered they were already working on the tranny design for the 3rd gen TLs and so the 2nd gens just got a band-aid fix (reprogrammed ECU, new fuel rails, and the oil jet kit). No sense spending a lot of money on designing a fix for a part you aren't making or using any more. It's cheaper for them to just fix the ones under warranty that fail.
As to KRS62's post, as others have pointed out the warranty on the 2nd gen trannys was expanded to 7 years/100K miles by Acura, and then through a class action lawsuit that warranty got extended by an additional 9 months and 9,000 miles, so it's now 7 years, 9 months/109K miles. As long as your VIN falls in the range of covered vehicles (you can check online at https://www.ahm-ownerlink.com/login.asp?brand=acura
or caller your dealer), then yours will still be covered. And if you bought it used after 2004, the inspection/jet kit install needed to be done before the car was sold to you or it was a violation of federal law.
