brakes - i have had to replace all 4 calipers. each caliper failure required me also to replace that pair of rotors. i am currebtly on my 3rd master cylinder. each failure has been characterized by pedal fading at intersection and car rolling into interesction. accident avoided by pulling up the handbrake or putting car in reverse. failure in equalizer results in severe pulling to one side under hard braking. electrical - car stalled at 55 mph. despite loss of power steering, i was able to successfully avoid other vehicles, maneuver to a side street and bring vehicle to a safe stop. gages - there is a loud squeaking/rattle coming from the speedometer gage. i am uncertain whether it affects the accuracy of the reported speed. cam shaft - oil leak from seal on left side just behind the distributer cap

called dealership, acura of boardman service dept., said they didn't know what it was and had never heard of ingnition failure being a problem. did research because of the odd and damaging behavior of the ignition switch to my vehicle and became aware of major recal on ignition switches. however the recall does not include my specific maker in my specific year but it does include my make and a different year. will contact acura/honda about having them replace. it is definitely a hazard! dt

electrical system"ignition: distributor- the distributor housing containing the bearing is making a noise and is totally worn out. was told by the dealer -acura of serramonte about it when i went to replace the timing belt and water pump. the car stops on idling and jerks on the freeway. there was a product update in 1996 valid for 6 years/90,000 mile. my car is 71000 miles but more then 6 years since then. so have to end up spending $300+ just for replacing a defective part that the manufacturer should have had a lifetime recall on. absolutely no reason why there should be a time restriction on fixing this defective component. dealer tells me 4 ut of 5 cars have had to replace it. i bought this car used and so feel helpless that the person who owned it before did not get it fixed while it was under an update notification. *nlm
