on honda accords/acura tl's 2004-2008 the navigation systems are failure and causing reboots nearly every 30 seconds. at night driving, this causes the navigation screen light to brightly flash every 30 seconds and the system will not function and allow you to turn the screen off or minimize brightness. on a recent trip from atlanta, georgia to baltimore, maryland at night i had to place an obstacle on the screen to avoid the flashing. i contacted acura and they are aware that this is happening and that the fix is to purchase a new system at $3,500 or sent the system to alpine (the maker of the navigation system) and have them attempt to repair it for $158.00 fee. after reviewing numerous forum sites on honda/acura i have found this to be a very common event. i feel that this is very dangerous while driving at night. my son attempted to drive this vehicle on 12/24/2011 during the day and brought the car back home because of the flashing and annoyance while driving. this was coming from a 22 year old. i've asked my children to not drive the vehicle at night so to avoid any issues. has there been any reports? acura told me that they report to this agency monthly and that my report/call to them today would be submitted this month. *tr

i have the technology package which includes a monitor above the dashboard for navigation and rear view. the reverse camera for this vehicle does not provide adequate visibility at night. i previously owned a 2004 mdx and the rear view camera worked well. other cars i've been seen also allow the driver to see clearly through the reverse camera in the dark. i've been to the dealer twice on this matter and have been told that this is the way the camera was manufactured. i was told that many other owners have also complained. *tr

honda acura mdx, the vehicle provides a backup camera to display the rear view when the vehicle backs up. however the camera system does not work at night under street light. the driver barely sees anything at rear through the video display even it is set at night mode and it is turned to max. bright level. i almost hit a child when i tried to backup the car with the rear view though the camera and i thought it was clear but it is not. it is a very dangerous and it could kill a child. acura should never install such poor quality cameras on its high end vehicles. or acura should put a clear warning mark beside the display which warns driver never use it at night. comparing to the other brand rear view cameras i never heard such stories that they are not be able to work at night. there are complaints on the web and many people are experiencing this problem. i hope acura will replace the camera and prevent it from an accident really happened. *tr

keyless start (push button) and problem occurred when no warning that key fob was not in vicinity of car after car was started and driven 2 hours away. my daughter handed me her keys to the acura tl (incl key fob) through the drivers side window after the car had been started so i could get some items out of our other car before she left to return to her home 5 hours away. i retrieved her items but forgot to give her the key fob back as the car was running and no warning indicators were given (audio or visual) that the key fob was not in the vicinity of the car. she headed off and stopped 2 hours later for gas only to find the car would not restart - due to the missing key fob. after experimentation and reading the owners manual i found that only when the door is opened and the fob is removed from the vehicle will a notice and alarm be given. if passed through an open window (as we did) no warning of any kind is given and the driver can drive off as if everything is fine. this is a significant flaw in the remote fob system and caused myself and my daughter significant amounts of stress and time to drive to her location to deliver the fob needed to restart the car. acura claims no problems from their side but i believe this is a significant issue with the system that needs to be addressed. it may be more than just acuras that have this problem. *tr

our vehicle is an acura mdx 2014 with the advance package. one feature of the package is adaptive cruise control which aims to keep the vehicle moving at a steady rate and at a set distance from any vehicle in front of it. on several occasions, when vehicles in front of ours slows down or a vehicle merges from another lane in front of us (even transiently), instead of gradually braking and speeding up, the acura performs sudden deceleration with hard braking even if the vehicle in front is doing the same speed or going only slightly slower. after the hard braking starts, if the vehicle in front speeds up, our vehicle does not recover and start to accelerate again. i have a pregnant wife who is the main driver of the car and i am concerned that this problem will cause her to be rear-ended. *tr

traveling 65 mph on a freeway with adaptive cruise control (acc) engaged, vehicle suddenly brakes hard on its own for no apparent reason; dropping 10 mph in a heartbeat. the vehicle did not produce a collision warning message on the dash. the cars in front on me were well beyond the longest 4 bar range of the acc so it was not detecting and locked onto a car in front of me. there were no cars on either side, no car crossing in front of me and the road was flat with no obstacles. fortunately, the car behind me was not tailgating as the sudden deceleration could have caused a rear end collision. sudden deceleration has happened twice during the six weeks i've owned this vehicle. i've also noticed that the acc is inconsistent, often sluggish, in responding to the speed of traffic when it is detecting a car in front of me; creating additional hazard concerns for the driver. *tr..updated 05-27-15 *bf

my leather dashboard on the inside of my car is about 50% covered with cracks. the cracks also run on top of the area where the airbag pops out. this is a major safety concern for me along with many other people that have the same problem. i have never seen this condition on any car, and would expect not to see it on such a high end vehicle like my acura tl. the dashboard should not be cracking at all. this should be an automatic recall item, especially because of the safety concerns. please address this promptly. it is a shame that the dealerships say that this is natural wear and tear. if there is a airbag underneath it, the item should be recalled. *tr

the car is been sitting for about 4 days and the battery is dead again. this has been the issue since i bought the car. it was taken to the dealer when this first happened and i was assured that the problem has been fixed. however, over the years i have replaced numerous batteries. internet research proved that the problem is with hands free system and acura knows about the problem for long but has done nothing to fix it.

low speed acceleration - shifting from 1st or 2nd or 3rd (not sure) gear to next gear is not smooth. it is a fairly hard shift. the rest of the shifting is smooth 4-9. also automatic downshifting creates an odd speed up for a second to what seems like a rev match to try to make it smooth, but causes problems on slippery roads. also early warning brake warning signal is very intermittent and works sometimes and not others in the exact same lighting situation and car position and same type of car directly in front of me.

defect shows as immediate loss of toe alignment in both front tires, lane keep assist computerized feature in unable to turn steering wheel right, and steering wheel position sensor is unable to remain fixed at zero. steering wheel position sensor: forces the vehicle into oncoming traffic by automatically during front wheels two and five degrees with maximum turning force applied when the road presents any combination of curved, tilted, and bumpy condition. steering wheel hand sensor computer applied over-steer forces the car left or right several degrees depending on hand position. ids: three settings force steering wheel several degrees left or right during braking depending on last applied steering adjustment. when the road is a combination of curved, substantially sloped, or bumpy the computer will apply maximum computerized turning force to move steering wheel up to 45 degrees left into oncoming traffic even when the road slopes and/or curves away from oncoming traffic. a series of software command conflicts and overrides between ids, steering wheel position sensor, steering wheel sensor for hand position, radar, and road position sensor, and other-vehicle sensors routinely cause the computer to perform unintended drive into incoming traffic with maximum computer applied force. manufacturer refused to provide dealers computer diagnostic equipment that aligns steering wheel sensor with navigation computer, radar, internal/external sensors, ids, and steering wheel hand sensor unless the consumer is willing to pay $700 in equipment transfer costs. manufacturer demands dealers deny service or avoid writing work orders that contain any indication of a problem with steering wheel sensor, radar, computer-integrated hardware, or ids. instead verbalize computer-related issues with repair techs to avoid regulatory reporting and california lemon law requirements.

the acura lane keep assist system (lkas) mis-reads some intersections and jerks the wheel toward a side street only to quickly try to compensate by jerking back. there is one intersection in particular that this happens consistently. the deal says the system is working properly. i believe this is a software "defect". it is quite starting the first time this happens and at speed it represents an unsafe condition. another case of a safety system creating an unsafe condition.

forward/front collision mitigation braking system didn't engage enough to reduce or avoid impact of the collision. my vehicle took a right turn at about 20-25 mph and travelled less than 2-2.5 car length before getting onto the curb and hitting an iron pillar about 2 feet high on side walk. it was a side frontal collision and the passenger side front wheel directly hit the iron pillar. the vehicle speed wasn't reduced to mitigate impact/damage from the collision and vehicle took full impact of the collision. the forward/front collision mitigation braking system must be evaluated to assess suitability to avoid collision with objects of low height.
