Car goes into limp mode when taking left and right turns

I own a 2015 Acura TLX V6 and every time I make a left or right turn, the car completely loses power and once I straighten out the wheel, it lurches forward and regains power.

This is the "normal" behavior of the ZF9... Read the transmission-related threads in the forum for additional context.

Battery connections are a great thought justnspace. OP: Is the car actually losing power? Or is it more like the ZF9 upshifts when turning (especially right) way too early resulting in engine lugging and sluggish acceleration through 2nd gear? If so, that's the normal stuff TSXV6Guy mentioned.

That right turn lag is a regular occurrence for me. You get used to it. The onramp hesitation happens less often - it's that two-second delay between pushing gas pedal and getting a throttle response. You get used to that too. Give your body time to build up an immunity to all of this stuff. You won't stop noticing when it happens. You just get less angry or surprised when it does happen.

But I only lose power when I take left and right turns. I'll check the battery connection when I get a chance. I just brought my car in to get a software update. A recall came in the mail. Something about a fuel pump. Hopefully that resolves it. So far so good.

unfortunately there is no magic update that will fix your issue. I've even had my transmission replaced in my 15 tlx and that same thing still happens. It sucks that this transmission has that flaw, but you really do get used to it. knowing when it's going to happen helps a lot. I personally use sport + when merging into traffic or onto the interstate and it seems to help quite a bit with the issue.
