    3rd Gen TL
    In November of 2012, I purchased an 06 Acura TL with around 61k miles on it. Since I have owned the car, I have noticed that whenever I hit a bump, pothole, etc while applying the brakes, they shake/pulsate for a couple of seconds after hitting the bump/pothole. I don’t know if this has...
  3. So, did my mechanics screw up?

    3rd Gen TL
    (Car is 2006 TL manual trans with 80k miles.) Here's a classic example of why it pays to learn at least some basics about repair work. Sadly, what I know about this stuff could be engraved on the head of a pin. A month ago I had a "complete" brake job, i.e. pads and rotors from a shop I've...

  7. What do anti lock brakes feel/sound like?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I've had the brakes on my '05 RSX replaced and also checked regularly, and they're said to be just fine. Under normal driving conditions and use, they function normally.
