Is your Acura transmission sending you warning signs that something is amiss?
Harsh shifting, RPMs going too high between shifts, lack of engagement (not moving when you shift into gear), and clunking when shifting from forward to reverse are common signs of trouble that become prevalent when there’s a potential problem with Acura transmissions.
Due to the complex nature of today’s computerized transmissions, it can be difficult to tell if your Acura transmission is on the cusp of malfunctioning. Even if there are signs that suggest a breakdown is looming, that doesn’t automatically mean your Acura transmission is the culprit.
Your Acura’s internal computer receives signals from dozens of separate sensors located throughout the vehicle which monitor a vast array of performance-related systems. Any one of these could be sending inaccurate information to the vehicle’s central computer or no information at all.
Since its introduction to Canadian motorists in 1986 by its parent company, Honda Canada, the Acura luxury vehicle line has stood out among its peers for its reliability. Acura has become one of the top-selling luxury marques, earning a distinction as a practical alternative to comparable European-made luxury vehicles.
Recent advancements in select 2017 Acura models such as the newly introduced sporty and seductive NSX include a nine-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. Honda’s goal with this change was to eliminate the somewhat jerky feel in some dual-clutch transmissions while also multiplying the torque.
