 Description of the problemI purchased a new 2005 acura tl in august 2005. My car is a non-navigation 6 speed manual transmission model delivered with bridgestone el42 tires. The first time i drove the vehicle in the rain, i noticed that even at low speeds on wet roads, the tires do not have any traction at all. On ramps at 20 mph the front tires loose grip. As of today, the weather is getting colder and the tires are flat spotting on top of that. These tires are all season rated and delivered on a $35,000 vehicle. They are absolutely unsafe in anything but dry weather, but are rates all season. I fear for my safety on the highway at freeway speeds and even more fear the first day of snow. Acura has so far refused to do anything and referred me to the tire manufacturer. They do deliver other tl models with michelin tires that are rated by customer much much higher. While the el42 tires present a big problem from wet weather traction, over flat spotting to premature wear, acura has chosen not to do anything about it yet. How shameful for otherwise such a great car, putting on tires that will land them a lawsuit if anything happens at all! It it their choice to put these tires on some of their cars, so their responsibility to fix the problem!! *jb
