New to Acuras and appreciate any and all assistance. Just purchased a 06 TL one owner with 55 K miles. VIN 19UUA662X6A066344. The transmission seems rough or it may be that I have never owned a front wheel drive car. A few questions please?

Are there any open recalls on this Vin ?

What are or are there any known issues with the transmission that I should have looked at right away at 55 k miles ?

What preventative maintenance should I do right away to prevent transmission issues ?

Do I have to buy NAV discs to update the NAV unit ?

Can the on board ECU be " flashed " to make the transmission " smoother " ?

Oh who is the Acura TL master guru in or around Nashville TN.

Thanks - Im not stupid just paranoid and OCD.

The service on the transmissions is a simple drain and fill. I would suggest going with the factory DW-1 fluid, however many others have done their own blend, so YMMV. At 55k miles, if the trans hasn't been serviced, I would do it soon.

I can't say about any open recalls or TSB's. If I remember, you can sign up for Acuralink (or whatever the hell it's called now-a-days), plop you VIN in there and it should bring up TSB's.

Thus far, there hasn't been any programmers to date that can adjust how the transmission mapping. I think Hondata had recently released Flashpro that will work on some of these cars, however, it can only do engine parameters.

Yes, the electronics are working from the motor, to the trans. Not the other way around, and yes Flashpro has been released, for racing purposes, but surely you can go with a route that saves more gas and lowers your HP. So the transmission will "run smoother"
