Here's the procedure for one of the Mercedes (copied from one of their forums):

"According to the manual for the 2013 GLK 250 BlueTEC there is a requirement to set the car in permanent neutral when going through a tow car wash. They state to remove the Keyless Go if necessary and switch the car on using the Smartkey. Then place it into neutral and make sure the parking brake is off. Then switch off the ignition but LEAVE THE SMARTKEY IN THE IGNITION SLOT.
Is the car wash really going to know this unless you are standing over them?"

It has a push button type transmission.

O.K., I'm through

Thanks EE4Life. I was just complaining about the voice address input for my MDX to one of the salesmen. I'm glad it will be addressed with this update.

I agree completely. The procedure is a bit to complicated and the duration is to short; IMHO 20 minutes would have been better. If I did elected to use the local car detail place, I'd likely have to get the manager to tell them in Spanish so all the details got communicated. They're very friendly guys but direct communication can be challenging for some of them.


My thought for the Winter when I'm to busy to do it myself, is to just pony up and get my detailer to do it or pay the extra $$ for the hand wash (which also has the possibility to go wrong) rather than send it through the touch-free automation they use.

The simplest way to prevent the car from automatically shifting from N to P when you exit the vehicle is to do up the seatbelt behind you. Tell the attendant not to undo the seatbelt. The car will stay in N.

Found this on Honda.com/recalls:


NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: AWAITING#
MFR CAMPAIGN ID: JM8
RECALL DATE: 12/03/2014
RECALL STATUS: Recall INCOMPLETE. Remedy not yet available.

SUMMARY:
AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO., INC. (HONDA) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2015 ACURA TLX V6 VEHICLES. DURING MANUFACTURING OF THE 9 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT CONTAMINATION MAY GET INTO THE PARKING PAWL OR THE PARK ROD MAY BECOME DISLODGED OR BROKEN, BOTH OF WHICH CAN PREVENT THE TRANSMISSION FROM SHIFTING INTO THE PARK POSITION.
SAFETY RISK:
ALTHOUGH THE SHIFT INDICATOR WILL DISPLAY "PARK", THE PARK LOCK MAY NOT ENGAGE, ALLOWING THE VEHICLE TO ROLL AWAY AND INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
REMEDY:
HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION, FREE OF CHARGE. THE LETTER WILL ALSO INFORM THEM ALWAYS TO ENGAGE THE MANUAL PARKING BRAKE AS A PRECAUTION UNTIL THE INSPECTION CAN BE COMPLETED. BECAUSE THE NEW VEHICLE WARRANTY ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES WOULD HAVE PROVIDED A FREE REPAIR FOR THE PROBLEM ADDRESSED BY THIS RECALL, WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT BY THE OWNER, REIMBURSEMENT FOR PRE-NOTIFICATION REPAIRS WILL NOT BE OFFERED. NOTIFICATION TO CUSTOMERS ABOUT THIS RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON JANUARY 6, 2015. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ACURA CLIENT RELATIONS AT 1-800-382-2238, OPTION 4. HONDA'S CAMPAIGN NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS JM8.

Yikes - this doesn't bode well for the downward trending CR reliability score

Props to AHMC for moving quickly on this recall.

The "feature" is a PIA. Seems pretty common with the ZF style transmissions.

You need to contact your dealer and provide them with your VIN and they will see if your TLX is affected or not.

I think you can test it out pretty easy.. just make sure you are on flat ground and/or chock the tires. I'd try test it out for you but... soon.

I am interested in knowing that as well

Not a problem for my 2.4, but I asked the car wash supervisor about it and he said, "Huh?" No clue. The majority of V6 owners aren't enthusiasts and will have no clue about car wash mode. Acura needs to make this go away.

Where I go, the car is in neutral with the engine running when it goes through, so all the guy at the end of the line has to do is put it in gear and drive to the wipe-down area.

FYI : There's (should be) a yellow laminated card in the car when you take delivery talking about carwash mode.

Placard was sitting on console beside salesperson when I took delivery. Salespersons job to bring to attention of new owner, but we all know that doesn't always happen. Complicated and dangerous procedure in real world reality, IMHO.

I also agree corporate should do away with this "feature". After a few automated wash mishaps and damaged car lawsuits, Acura might take notice.

Not worrying about it personally because I hand wash my cars but know most people don't.

This was one of the first items mentioned by my salesperson when I took delivery of the car. Another reason owners need to spend time with the manual after purchasing the car.

I am considered a "techie" by friends and relatives, BUT, even with the 2.4 Tech I was overwhelmed by information and still have to dig out the PDF version of the manual or e-mail the service guy for advice. If you're laying out that kind of money for a V6, lease or purchase, you've probably achieved some reasonable status in life. The majority of folks at that level would likely say, "Yeah, whatever." and basically ignore it until the car gets jammed in the car wash. I hope I'm wrong.

Complicated, yes (but not after doing it a few times). Dangerous, I don't think so. It would take a lot of "successful" lawsuits to make a difference, and I think this is unlikely.

It does not affect me either because I do not use that type of car wash. Maybe it is time for a poll on what of method car wash do people use. In my area it would less than 5% that use the driverless kind.

For the poll: "My" local car wash, driverless, does a great job, including vacuum, hand-wipe, interior wipe-down, inside window wipe-down, and tires for $10.99 plus cash tip. This is in the Dallas Fort Worth area. To me, it's worth it.

The dealer is 20 miles away and they don't do much on the interior.

May be 5% because you're in Canada and not southern CA, AZ, NM, TX, GA, FL that have many driverless automated car washes. Dangerous yes, because most of these facilities hire minimum wage workers, many don't speak English fluently or at all and often only work at the facilities temporarily and new replacements are hired, so constantly changing personnel. Who will teach all these workers to operate a trick TLX procedure when that waiting line of hundreds of cars, all different need to get through that line to keep the $ money coming in?

I know of one automated, very busy car wash in Los Angeles County that is constantly stopping while cars are going through the line. Wait till a TLX breaks the 15 minute rule in that facility.

Let the hate begin........

I live in the DFW area and also use a driverless car wash, although I pay $15 and it is worth it to me also. I will wash it myself every now and then to really get my car detailed, but only when the outside temperature is comfortable!

I just checked my last receipt: $11.99. Still a great deal. A couple of bucks tip and off I go. This is in the Mid-Cities.

My old '01 TL, which was pretty well trashed out by my son, was ready to go at 185K miles, so we took it to this car wash before going to CarMax for an appraisal. Like, whoa, who's car is this and why are we selling it? The car looked terrific inside and out, and $14 on a car wash got us more money on the trade, I'm sure. They tell me it was sold as-is, no further detailing, in less than two hours. We were happy at the price and our sales guy was happy for the quick sale.

Thanks for the info.

Not much detail to it, but it apparently affects all 2015 TLXs.

p.s. Unless the info is in the post I cannot access.

Thanks for the info.

Not much detail to it, but it apparently affects all 2015 TLXs.
From how I read it, it sounds to me that Honda is clarifying what it will and will not pay for if there is an issue with the TPMS sensor and not an actual widespread issue with the system itself.

BTW, I took the TLX to the car wash for the first time (we have a really good one with nice soft felt cleaners with very gently rotation, they do a great job) and explained the whole thing and showed them the card, and the team lead had all of the guys around explaining it to them. I was very impressed.

So the time comes to take it in and the guy drives it in, opens the door, and then apparently says screw it and gets back in the car and rides it through himself. When he got out of the car I thanked him and gave him a big hug and smile, and he gave me a huge smile back. That's the kind of folks you want to work with.
