Acura will voluntarily recall approximately 9,500 model-year 2015 TLX V6 vehicles in the United States to inspect, and, if needed, replace the automatic transmission, free of charge. Manufacturing process issues could result in the 9-speed automatic transmission not properly shifting into Park after selecting the Park position. If the parking brake is not applied by the driver and the transmission cannot be shifted into Park, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of a crash. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
