2006 Acura TL

Just bought a 2006 Acura TL with 108,000 miles. Had a pre inspection done before I bought it by Auto PI in Austin, TX. I noticed a a couple of things after I bought it. The pre inspection did not notice these things. When I put it into drive or reverse from park there is a pause before it starts to accelerate. Sometime itís a longer pause pause. Another thing is the vibrations that the engine makes when idle in drive. Sometimes I can feel vibrations when I start drive down the road. All of these things are slight but concern me. Does anyone know what this could be?

1) sounds like your transmission is either low on ATF or has the incorrect ATF in it (or the transmission is on it's way out)
2) sounds like one or more of your motor/transmission mounts is either toast, or it was replaced with a cheap aftermarket mount

Did you test drive it before buying it?

Always a pause with these cars when changing from Park, not instantaneous.
As stated previously, check mounts. Can put car in Drive w/foot on brake and just hit the accelerator pedal slightly and see if any abnormal movement, try both Drive and Reverse.

1. its normal for a long pause/ delay when you shifting from park to drive (Honda stated 2-5 secs is consider normal)

2. This sound like a motor mounts issue (very common on TL), if you do replace the mount please go OEM.
