Ashland, OR

i experienced sudden violent full acceleration with a 1988 acura legend, which resulted in a crash into a building, and a very badly broken leg for me. i have been made aware of possibly thousands of complaints of the same problem with the 1986-1988 acura legend, and am sure there must be thousands more still on the road. are there any group lawsuits currently being put forth, or can you provide me with any suggestions for receiving justice in this matter?

i have had the front lower ball joints replaced in 2001, 2002 and 2003 with less than 10,000 miles and around a year of wear. the first time they were replaced, the dealer did them and put in defective parts. and refused to replace them even after admitting their defectiveness-- of course the service rep denies having admitted this.

Acura Mdx 2005

Location:
Nashua, NH

i don't know if this counts but here i go. i purchased my new acura 2005 mdx over 3 months ago. i know this is not a recall but wanted to make you aware of a booming sound that is coming from the sub-woofer in the rear. its almost if the woofer is loose inside the rear of the car. i guess a lot of other 2005 mdx owners are having the same problem. its a procedure where the interior has to be taken off and an adhesive is put around the subwoofer to secure it to the vehicle. you might want to report this to acura. i hope this helps. *jb

Acura Rl 2007
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
July 12, 2007
Location:
Orlando, FL

i own a 2007 acura rl with the collision mitigation braking system. i was introduced to this feature with my friends 2006 rl so i know how it is supposed to work. my 07 does not function the same. the system does not alert me of potential accidents with sufficient warning like the 06. i experienced a near collision in july 07 and the system never even went to 'stage 1', let alone stage 2 or 3. i tested it myself (intentionally) several more times but could not get the system to go to stage 1. this is the first stage and should be easy to reach. they have checked the car but concluded there is nothing wrong. i know one other person with an 07 and he has the same complaint. i'm afraid something may be wrong with all the 07's if their computers don't detect anything. i have given up my personal attempts to solve the problem but i hope the nhtsa can force acura to investigate this issue and determine if a recall is necessary. by the way, acura corporate confirmed for me they made no intentional changes to the system between 06 and 07. a description of this feature can be found near the end of this safety page; http://www.hondanews.com/categories/755/releases/3766. *tr

Yardley, PA

vehicle randomly shuts down (dies) while driving for no apparent reason. happens at any speed, stopped or while at idle. not connected to weather or climate conditions. car has never been in an accident. has been happenning for about 6 months now, with no pattern. can happen 2 times in 1 day, then fine for 2 weeks, then daily for 3 days, etc. i had the ignition switch replaced in 2004 under a previous recall. from my research it appears as if the same problem is happening. this problem is widely reported on the acurazine.com and other acura related websites. replacement of the ignition switch seems to correct the issue. dealer wants $300 to repair the same which was replaced in 2004 on my vehicle. *tr

99 acura tl, single owner, routine maintenance followed by the book. had ignition switch replaced after recall in 2002. 3 months ago at about 165,000 engine started cutting off while driving. had it check by two places but neither had a solution. started using gas treatments and did not have any further problems until yesterday. driving on the highway middle lane, the car cut off (9:00pm) had to cross 4 lanes of traffic to get to the emergency lane while coasting - very scary dodging 18wheelers. made it to the side tried to start, would not start. waited 5 minutes, started again and moved about 100 feet towards an exit before it cut off again. repeated process this time made it to the exit and waited for spouse. my spouse drove the car home no problem. next morning trying to go to work car shut down on the highway again after traveling about 5 miles from my house. tried to get it back home to a goodyear by the house. it cut off 8 times during that time. goodyear analyzed it and said it looked like the ignition switch. called acura and was told if i already had the repair another repair would not be covered and acura was the only one that could determine that the ignition switch was indeed the problem. i cannot risk driving 45 miles to the nearest dealership just for them to tell me that the ignition switch is not the problem. *tr

multiple cracks are on the passenger side, and a deep gash appears on the cowling over the instrument cluster. it's a high-end car, and you pay big money for it, and you shouldn't have big cracks in your dashboard, don't know, you know with a crack like that, if the airbag were to deploy if it would cause any sort of malfunction. *tr

our 2004 acura appears to be very sluggish and slow to accelerate in 35-40 miles range and was pulling to the right. so, we took it to acura dealership in los gatos, california on 1/27/2009 for further investigation. that's when the dealer recommended a new transmission without any mention of the existing recalls on the 2004 acura mdx transmission problems. *tr
