Round Rock, TX

summary: the jack supplied with my 2001 acura mdx slipped while i was changing a tire in my driveway, causing the car to fall on my right arm as i was mounting the spare tire. i received a crush injury across my right elbow, which is useable now but still sore 2 months later. whys: i almost did not report this because i was stupid and forgot to set the emergency brake. i am reporting this because my brother-in-law in dallas, who owns a 2001 accura mdx, had a similar thing happen to him (without injury) a few months earlier when his emergency brake was set; he had not mentioned it to me until he heard about my accident. i would love to be the last person that an mdx falls on. both my brother-in-law and i had decided to change our own tires as we had flats in our driveways (both of us have changed many flats in the past, although it had been several years since i had done so), were in a safe, level, and dry place, and had no need to wait an hour for roadside assistance. i think many people would make the same choice in that situation, or, more hazardously, along a roadside (where the road's crown makes the ground uneven, and where passing traffic will shake a car). my brother-in-law's 2001 mdx shifted (even with the emergency brake on) and bent the jack, but did not fall all the way off of it. he called roadside assistance. when the r.a. man arrived to help, he looked at the jack and said that it was way too small for a car as heavy as an mdx. my jack also bent. although my emergency brake was off, the car did not roll or shift when my neighbor came over with a larger jack to re-raise my car and install the passenger tire for me. (at that point we didn't realize it was not set). i was negligent, but my brother-in-law was not; this jack may be dangerous when supporting this car. will you please follow up on this? *ak

Newmarket, NH

recently i had to change my wife's car tire due to a flat. i used the factory acura scissor jack to do it. while i had stepped away from the jack stand to get the spare tire, the jack collapsed and essentially the metal structure of the jack had folded a bit. the car slammed to the ground with my wife and 1 year old inside the car (it was raining out). i contacted acura support about having them simply replace the unusable jack stand with a new one. they politely told me to pound sand. i have some pics of the bent jack that i can share. i had contacted the us consumer product safety commission and they recommended i file a complaint with the nhtsa. *tr updated 01/09/13*lj
