Safety incident date:
Sept 25, 2001
Spring Hill, FL

tthink twice and long before buying a 2000 acura 3.2 tl.we are the second owners of this make/model/year. we and the original purchaser have experienced the following issues:on september 25th, 2001, at 20129 miles, the first owner took the automobile to an acura service department because the srs (supplemental restraint system) indicator light had come on.the shop replaced the 'opds unit' but provided no explanation as to why the warning indicator had come on. at 26467 miles, the original purchaser brought the car to the dealership because the brake indicator light had come on.brake fluid was added, but no reason for the light's illuminating was given.we purchased the vehicle with an odometer reading of 25807 miles.shortly thereafter, the srs light came on and stayed 26467 miles we brought the vehicle to an acura personnel checked the srs indicator and consequently ordered yet another 'opds' unit.while in the shop, the seal around the front windshield,which had puckered up,also was repaired.some three weeks later we returned to the dealership to have the opds unit explanation was given for the the interim,the brake warning light had come on,and the brake reservior cap was changed as well.less than two months have passed:the srs light is again constantly on.we are about to schedule an appointment to have this looked at, and also have the trunk light inspected, since it doesn't work.the trunk light problem is not due to a blown fuse or burned-out bulb; i checked that myself.having the srs warning light come on,together with the dealer's inability to explain or rectify the situation,puts one in something of a quandry:is it a false warning,will the airbag(s) deploy in a crash? or is it an indication of a problem and will the airbag(s) not deploy when needed? the acura 3.2 tl is not an inexpensive car, and one would expect it to require minimum attention while providing a high degree of reliability and safety. it doesn't.

Acura Tl 2003
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Sept 01, 2003
Toronto, Ontario, OH

"yaw rate sensor" for the vehicle stability assist (vds) system may be improperly mounted. this can cause either of the front wheel brakes to be suddenly and firmly applied without warning for up to one second. a possible result is lost of control or rear end collision (brake lights are not activated). improperly mounted sensor will also cause the vds to deactivate until engine restart, activate vsa system indicator warning light on the tachometer face, and set a yaw rate sensor diagnostic trouble code. honda has started supplying yaw rate sensors with a locating pin which prevents improper mounting. but there is no indication that honda has recalled to check those vehicles built or repaired with units lacking the locating pins. the unit is easily accessible to check for proper mounting. this problem pertains to 2003 & 2002 type-s versions of both the 3.2tl and 3.2cl models. *la
