i have an acura tl 2003 vin [xxx]. ever since i bought this car (new, purchased on nov 7, 1998) on several times its 'check engine' indicator light comes on and goes off without any repair or any change. acura had a recall on egr system clogging. but in my car this indicator light still comes on and then goes off without any indication of a problem. i took my car to service center they told me that catalytic converter was bad, before i could get it fixed the indicator light went off. but in few days "check engine" light came back again. this indicator light off-on cycle still going on, it goes off for weeks and comes back on for weeks. i can't seem to figure out this erratic behavior of such an important safety indicator. *la information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

i purchased my acura rsx, type s on 10-14-02. on 02-14-03 i had problems with the keyless entry not working when it was cold out. the problem occured four times. i would have to manually unlock the doors with my key and i was unable to manually lock the car. it would only last until it warmed up. i had the car looked at on 02-14-03, they said the problem could not be corrected because it was not acting up at that time. also on 02-14-03 the check engine code was pulled. it was p1163, slow response of the primary oxygen sensor. they stated that they knew the o2 sensors were sensitive and suggested to reset the codes and watch for further problems. on 09-12-03 the check engine cose was pulled again. it was p1163, o2 sensor & p0219 engine over speed for condition. on 09-23-03 the o2 sensor was replaced. on 10-13-03 the check engine light came on again. i could not get in until 10-16-03. on 10-15-03 the light went off. the dealership did not want to pull the codes since the light went off. i insisted that the codes be pulled, because i did not want to be found negligent if something were to happen down the road. the codes pulled were p1163 & p0219. they suggested i take the car to the dealership i bought it at. they did not replace the o2 sensor again, because they had just replaced it. they felt there was an underlying condition besides the o2 sensor. on 11-03-03 the check engine light came on again. my appointment is 11-06-03. i have sent my info to automobile lemon law attorneys in elmhurst il. i also contacted acura customer service in torrence ca. i want others to be aware of these problems. the only reason i bought an acura is because of it's reputation of being a well built car.

noxious odor inside and outside vehicle due to catalytic converter overworking. acura insists this is normal and has advised us to continue driving car while causing my family to become nauseous and sick from the smell. they insist that hydrogen sulfide is environmentally safe but research indicates that this chemical causes damage to the respiratory system. acura has refused to correct this problem and has advised us to pursue litigous means. i do not understand why my car smell is so potent while other mdx's do not smell.

my 1998 acura 2.5 tl has had noticeable exhaust leak into the passenger compartment from about 100,000 miles point, since january 2008l about one year ago. all the outside smells come right in even though i always have vents and air cond or heater set to "inside air only" setting. along with exhaust i smell the catalytic converter odor, refinery odor when i drive past refinery, skunk smell when i drive over even a spot where a skunk was removed a few days ago, etc and also the check engine light came on a year ago, as many other owners have reported, i had it diagnosed as failed oxygen sensor but it seems that goes with the cracked engine manifold. this widely reported condition should be a mfgr recall notice. there is no excuse for the failure to recall over this persistent defect. owners now know that it was the very same problem in 1996 and 1997 where it was a recall notice item; it should be for 1998 as well. i have been the most loyal of acura owners (this is our fourth acura as a family) but i and my husband will no longer tolerate such dishonesty in acura co. *tr

on october 13, 2009, at about 12:45, i provided my 2002 acura mdx to jerry damson acura, huntsville, alabama for the ┐82,500 mile service┐. at about 1:15 i received a call from the service department stating that two engine mounts were broken. the price would be about $500. although i was concerned how engine mount failures could happen on a vehicle with this mileage, i agreed to have it repaired for obvious safety reasons. later that day i discovered other complaints on the internet for broken engine mounts for this vehicle. when i arrived at jerry damson acura to pick it up, i advised the service person that i felt acura should pay for this. the acura service manager, gil williams, was called-in to discuss this problem with me. he stated that they/acura would not pay for this. i asked how a failure of this nature could happen at this mileage. after some discussion he stated that the catalytic converter is located near these particular engine mounts and contributes to increased temperature in the area, resulting in failure of these engine mounts. he further stated that he had previously discussed this problem with acura and they advised him to ┐sell it as a maintenance item┐. i stated this was an obvious design defect that acura or jerry damson should pay for. he said they would not. i asked him to elevate this to the jerry damson general manager. he refused to do that. he provided me with the phone number for ┐acura client services┐, he would do nothing else. i reluctantly paid for this broken engine mounts repair at $483 in order to retrieve the vehicle. it is a logical deduction that the broken engine mount problem is a design defect since he admitted the catalytic converter┐s proximity to the engine mounts contributes to this early failure. it┐s therefore clear that this repair cost should be borne by acura/jerry damson. *tr
