sadly, the radiator for the 1994 acura integra is made of plastic and metal - poor engineering! after 3 years and 11 months i had to replace my radiator for the first time. now 2 years and 11 months later, i'm replacing it again because the plastic and metal separated in both cases. this is a very inferior product. i think the manufacturer should replace these at cost.*ak

the air conditioner blows out only warm air. i have taken it to the dealership and they have diagnosed the problem as a faulty compressor and have ordered a new part but it is on a national backorder with no eta for the part. it is unacceptable that acura is ignoring a wide spread problem and not issuing a recall or product update for the affected models. *tr

i own a 2004 acura tsx. my ac blew out on me when i was driving home from work. i only had around 60,000 miles at that time. the dealer wanted to change the whole ac unit. compressor, hoses, condenser, and flush the system out. they know about the ac failure as many acura tsx were reported with this problem and not offering any recall on it. it's an expensive repair to fix. they quoted me $3,000.00 for the full repair. *tr

a/c condenser on the acura rdx 2008 still under warranty did not work when the weather was warming up. went to the dealer and he said all the freon escaped from a small hole on the condenser due to some debris hitting it. dealer wants to charge me $900 do fix it!! the condenser has a design flaw. it is not protected with a grill and it will keep happening again. i'm not the only one. a lot of honda and acura vehicles owners are reporting condenser damage due to road debris!!! *tr

acura tsx 2004. turned on the ac while driving, nothing but warm air was coming in. researched on-line for "04 tsx air conditioner broken" and to my surprise, there have been other 04 tsx owners with the same issue/problem - an acura service advisor has indicated that there have a number of folks having the same issue with the same vehicle and that the total cost is approx. $4000.00. took the vehicle to the dealer, and was informed that the entire ac unit needs to be replaced - ac compressor failure caused metal shavings to be spread through the system - total cost approx. $4500.00. contacted acura client services (http://www.acura.com/clientservices.aspx), but have been informed that there is nothing that they can do to assist me. *tr

Santa Rosa, CA

on april 7, 2009 took my 2003 acura mdx into local dealer for it's 60,000 mile service (odometer read 63,438). no problems brought to my attention. june 16, 2009 (odometer 67,608) a/c stops working. pay over $1300 to have a/c compressor, clutch, stator & hi pressure hose replaced. get car back on june 18, 2009. july 1, 2009 check engine light comes on (odometer 68,219). am told that car needs a "valve realignment" - all gaskets and spark plug seals replaced ($600). get car back on july 2, 2009. july 3, 2009 burning smell coming through a/c vents. am told that it's residue from v/c gaskets from the valve realignment job- supposedly residue removed. get car back july 6, 2009. july 17, 2009 notice oil in front passenger side wheel well. pop hood, notice radiator overflow container is overflowing, radiator is very mobile and overflow container is black at the bottom. have car towed to dealership. am told that the radiator cracked internally and that the coolant and transmission fluid were mixing together - therefore have to flush the transmission and replace radiator for another $900. this just didn't feel right to me. started researching and am being told that these are not "normal" repairs on this model for so few miles on it and that the burning smell was most likely the mixing of the coolant and transmission oil not residue from the valve realignment. dealership isn't accepting responsibility. acura customer services is saying there's nothing they can do either because the dealership has followed all procedures. i really feel like they are trying to covering up a defect or mechanic error . *tr

i just bought an used 2003 acura mdx on jan 30th with 87,000 mile on it. just after 11 days on feb 11, 2010, i noticed that some brown colored fluid is leaking from the front passenger side. it's not just dipping, there were lot of fluids coming out. i opened the hood and notice that the fluid was overflowing from the radiator reservoir. next morning when i start the car and tried to run it just stopped in the middle of the road and engine light came on. i had to tow the car to a dealership. they said somehow internally transmission cooler was busted and the transmission coolant was mixed with the engine coolant. therefore i had to replace the whole radiator, need to flush transmission fluid, and flush the radiator. it cost me $1000. now, my car is not smooth as it was before. transmission is not shifting properly. i am really worried driving this car. i saw that mdx has a lot of transmission problem. i think they should change the transmission for free and they should also take care of this fluid mixing problem. i'd appreciate if you guys investigate this problem. *tr
