AIrbags deploying are the only plausible reason that a car would have a rebuilt title.. If it was truly just a 'front bumper and fog lights', your title should be clean..

I think OP's right about the seat buckles. It looks like ALL 3G Type S had black ones. Here's a thread about another member's Type S with the tan interrior. Black buckles as well.

Type-S with Taupe interior has aluminum (or aluminum-like) trim. Trim looks fine/right to me.

Seats and trim are FINE. Correct color/style.

Here's mine:








If you're going to ride someone for a questionable title, at least know what is and isn't correct for the year, make and model.

Both Type-S interiors (Taupe, Ebony/Silver) have black buckles. I think most people here are skeptical about the car's history because the seller was not forthright and transparent about what kind of damage occurred (saying the car was branded as "Rebuilt" just because of a bumper).

No one is saying you did, we're just hesitant to believe that that little amount of damage could cause a rebuilt title AND to top it all off, you're asking the same price as if that car had a clean title.

This exactly.

And it could very well be that the previous owner before OP just wasn't as transparent to him so he honestly doesn't know

list whatís wrong in the original post maybe if you want close to your asking price, especially on a forum where people take into highly consideration whatís in the ad before they decide if they want to continue with pursuing a purchase. You add another part that was replaced every time you post
1st: bumper
2nd: bumper, headlight, fender
3rd: bumper, headlight, fender, fog light

Ok lets get some clarification here.

1. You bought the car with rebuilt title and the car already fixed (same as other normal Type S) correct?

2. You said "only bumper, fog lights, passenger headlight and passenger fender" were replaced? if so how did you know what component got replaced and any documentation to backing up the claim mentioned?

3. Is there a reason the hood missing insulation piece and the driver seat side cover popping out?




Let be honest here its OP car and he can list for whatever price he likes as long as seller disclosure title status (which was great). People if you don't like the price because the title brand just leave the thread as is and moving on.... for potential buyer its up to their decision of whether or not to purchase the vehicle.

clarfication


The hood is original I removed the felt inside I don’t like on the cars, I have done the same thing to my older acura. I like to wax the paint, that’s why that is off.

Parts that were changed of my knowledge and the other owner has told me.

1The front bumper and the fogligts are new along with the plate holder because the felt is still on the back of the plate

2 The passenger headlight, don’t knoe of the other one was changed but they are good condition, he told me one not sure other, no issues they are aligned good

3. The passenger fender was changed, the guy told me. I also know or was changed because when I changed the front brakes, I saw a little silver paint on inside of plastic tab, the other fender is original no paint on the inside.

4. Clarification of why the seat cover is open a little. When I bought the seat, the bottom part had a bad rip in it. So I purchased a used seat while back from a guy in Craigslist, which had the same tan seat. I brang it to my mechanic friend, which dissembled the seat and swapped the cushion. I should of mentioned that in first post, which help clarify things.

5. That’s why I assured you the interior isn’t swapped, and the airbags are original. To my my knowledge everything works inside.

6. When I bought this car I was the same way I looked at everything. Guy selling rebuilt, must be something wrong it.

7. I’m not trying hustle anybody or give them a car gonna go down the road break on them. I bought this car for the intention to drive it myself. That’s why I took
off the felt on the hood.

8. Only things I have done to the car is change it’s oil with moble 1 synthetic 5w20
changed the brake pads with gold edition from advance autoparts. Also added a new battery because it died on me due to the issue with Bluetooth thing, which I disconnected. I added new battery in the summer, which has warranty still, I have the receipt, I can get new one if someone likes with the warranty.

9 exterior, I added the roof spoiler which I bought from eBay while back pre painted albaster silver and the window visors which I also bought from eBay.

10. Only things of someone is picky that need to be changed are the pillars on the radio which have scratches on them, never got chance to change those.

11. Mechanically haven’t changed anything on the car, you look at the engine it’s very clean inside, just like when I bought it. The transmission is very good as well doesn’t bog in gears shifts smooth.

12 undercarriage is very good, the bumper bar beam is well doesn’t have dent on it, the suspension should last u a while, the springs and shocks are very good. The steering wheel is very sturdy, the ball joints and tie rods are very good

13. Clarification on the vin
19UUA76518A032277
Thats the vin

14. Once again, car is rebuilt, but it has been fixed very good, reason I bought it, if the paint was mismatching, suspension, engine issues. I wouldn’t bought it.

15. Hope this helps anybody,this is most straight forward I can be, other than that don’t know much to say about it.

16.sorry for the issues,and troubles I can’t edit the first post, I posted it to quick.

17. 12k or best offer contact information is given previous post

I'm not here to continue any debate on his interior other than when I was working for Acura as a Certified Technician and I did the CPO's with PDI's, I can tell you a few things from the photos. It is clear that the front end was hit as the paint if off panel to panel, bumper to panel. The gaps are a bit off and about the seat belts, the only one that isn't correct, is the drivers one. It has a tan buckle instead of black. Why? Because the sea belt pre-tensioner fired and the correct repair is to the replace the seat belt assembly. Since part of the seat belt attached to the base of the seat, that also explains why the side trim cover isn't properly reinstalled. Not all SRS systems are the same. It is possible that the seat belt tensioner fired without an airbag deployment, but I think for the 3rd gen TL, if the seat belt tensioner is fired, the airbag(s) have also deployed. For what it's worth, it is what it is at this point. The vehicle was repaired to the best of someone else's ability. The person OP bought the car from should have fully disclosed more of what happened including pictures, unless OP knows and isn't willing to let anyone know. Since it's been in an accident big enough to claim it a loss, the car has to be priced accordingly.

Side cover piece

The cover is offer because my mechanic friend didnít align it correctly he changed the the bottom leather part, as for the seat belt I wasnít aware of that.

I just saw that now, donít knoe what happened there but there are no issues with the airbags on the car. No lights no problems, car is excellent.

12k or best offer
Not gonna sell the car for 8 k car has low miles and runs way too good for that price
If someone wants buy a car is gonna last them for good long time,these cars can do that.

I own a older Acura 99 TL I have 320k on it. Doesnít have value but it runs good
The type s is rebuilt, but it runs just as any other type s you see. It passed the test to make it road worthy, it is legit. Everything works no issues, I provided everything I know about the car, if anyone can find anything about through vin be my guest as a buyer everyone wants know I understand.
For pictures, I donít have any, I bought car once again, previous owner didnít show them to me.

I just think best way to see car is to see it i person,before judge it.

This is taken from page 20 of a 2007-2008 TL owners manual.

The tensioners are designed to activate in any collision severe enough to cause the front airbags to inflate. If a side airbag or side curtain airbag deploys during a side impact, the tensioner on that side of the vehicle will also deploy. The tensioners can also be activated during a collision in which the front airbags do not deploy. In this case, the airbags would not be needed, but the additional restraint could be helpful.

As for if any of the front airbags deployed, only the original owner knows that information.

Information

Car passed inspection, the car was registered in mass, airbags are good, if they were bad, they would need to be changed and the previous owner wouldnít be able to register it.I wouldnít have been able to register it in connecicut.

Everything works on the car, car has a title already, got its title, if the tan seat belt bothers you, you can change it.

You can do whatever you want, paint them green for all I care, what happened most likely is that the previous owner swapped the seat belt to tan one because he couldnít find a black one. I didnít even notice that belt was tan. Does it bother the car from operating normal it doesnít. It works fine, I put the belt on a buckle l, u know what it works so do the people that inspected the car.

There are no catches to the car, it works, everything else works, airbags work.

Car is good, price 12k or best offer
its my price, Iím owner, Iím not acura dealer, not kbb. Interested in buying the car, text me.

I think most prospective buyers would be more interested in a "rebuild" certificate/document that shows exactly what all happened when it was certified "rebuilt" rather than whether it had an alignment seven years ago.

Someone who is doing proper due dilligence on buying a "rebuilt" car will need alot more documentation and proof of what exactly occured in the rebuild/repair.

Also that one state inspection report is fine but....that does little to show exactly what is underneath the body/suspension components/etc. Not saying it's unsafe.

It should be taken to either a Honda/Acura specialty shop or at least an Acura dealer and do a much more thorough inspection of more than just the bare minimum safety items to pass state inspections or emissions. Repair points, body panel gap/color off setting, any wearing out of boots/hoses, control arms, detailed chassis/frame inspection especially around the area where the prior damage occured.

Only documents I have


Have a title branded as rebuilt

Dont have document what happened to it. The previous owner got it in accident not me.
Already mentioned what was changed on the car.

Car is good, no issues.
Only people interested in buying car respond.

car doesnít need to get another title it has one, it is rebuilt. The previous owner got car inspected as anyone has to to get the title.
You like to see the car and inspect it, more than welcome to what you are asking of is nonsense.
