turned corner in large center city and hit a construction large pot hole and/or obstruction on the left rear. after completing turn onto a narrow one-way street acceleration increased, brakes did not work, engine could not be turned off, gears could not move. after going through two major intersections without accident i kept pulling on the emergency brake. the car slowly stopped and was then perfectly normal. could use the brakes, shift, etc. i parked overnight in a garage. had the car towed to dealer the next day (7/21/12), where it is still unresolved. dealer said car is ok, but is now being analyzed by acura corporate engineers. i had three other people who were in the car at the time, including my wife, who will not ever go into this car. the car was only 10 days after purchasing. *tr

car was parked outside during summer heatwave. interior was hot. vehicle started with hesitation, ran for a moment, and then stalled and failed to start in the middle of a busy intersection. crank, no start, was the final symptom. occupants were nearly hit by a medium duty truck who had trouble stopping. after the car was hauled to a shady location, the interior cooled and it again started. since that sentinel event, the car stalled or failed to start 3-4 times-- each time after being parked in the sun. traced problem to a failed solder joint in the pgm-fi main relay under the dash. it controls power to fuel and ecu. the circuit board was not designed to tolerate the expansion and contraction associated with temp changes in the interior. a quick internet search reveals that many people are suffering from large repair bills for diagnostics and inappropriate repairs because this is an intermittent problem. relay needs recalled! affects nearly every honda / acura since approx. 1998. *tr

driving on highway and gas pedal failed to operate proper....after slowing down to about 20 mph it started up again and i regained the speed of about 60. then in about 2 miles it happened again, i got off the highway and took to the closest acura dealer. they replaced the app sensor and noted "pedal position sensor failure" the pedal position sensor was replaced. this happened on june 5, 2012, then on september 3, 2012 i was parking in our office parking lot and the gas petal accelerated as i was putting the gear shift in the park position. i accelerated so fast i hit the concrete stop took off airborne went over the embankment and down to the street below. needless to say the car entire front end was wrecked. the seat belt did indeed save me from more serious injury than i did received. *tr

exhaust entering cabin while under acceleration or under load. the exhaust entered cabin especially when the hvac system was in "recirc" the dealer and acura were unable to find the problem after multiple visits. i documented that carbon monoxide was building up inside to alarming levels using a real-time industrial gas detector levels exceeding 160ppm while pulling a ~3000 lbs boat on the interstate with a slight head wind. (being measured from front seat/ i have video recordings of this and other documentation showing the buildup after normal acceleration entering interstate etc. the actual problem was discovered when i personally was inspecting the vehicle and found both rear body plugs missing. they are at the rear of the vehicle one on each side that leads to the interior or the vehicle. once pointed out to the dealer they were embarrassed and fixed immediately. the plugs were loose fitting so they glued them in. the issue now seems to be resolved. i have noticed several other internet postings with similar issues. it is a safety issue in my mind because of the co if your driving normally against the wind and the hvac is in "recirc" the levels will build up >35ppm especially in high winds or higher altitudes and you can't smell it. clips that illustrate hole http://youtu.be/srpukaxv83o http://youtu.be/1i0aun8vt4s parts to replace body plugs grommet, side panel - 2010 acura mdx (74514-stx-a00) item 9 on the diagram http://www.acurapartsnow.com/parts-c...per/grommet-rr thread that allowed me to find real problem (beginning and end is the relevant sections) http://mdx.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=867878. *tr

as i was attempting to put gasoline into my vehicle (it still had 1/4 of a tank), with the nozzle on automatic (as opposed to manual), after about five seconds, the pump shut off and gasoline spewed out of the car at the intake location. i was splashed with gasoline. thinking that i had placed the nozzle incorrectly, i tried it again with the same result. i was again splashed with gasoline. i then wondered if there was something wrong with the gas pump and i moved to a different pump at the same station. again, i had the same result, but i was splashed less as i had anticipated what ultimately happened. i told my husband what had happened, and the next day, he went to the station with me. he was able to dribble some gasoline into the tank with the nozzle on manual. i looked up the problem on the internet and discovered the same issue with several vehicles of the same year, make and model. on 12/21/13, i called the dealership and informed them of the issue, and i called acura customer care to report it. it was seen at the dealership on 12/22/13. two parts were replaced -- "canister assy" and "mod. canister d" (not the gas tank) on 12/23/13, as the parts had failed functional testing. i picked up the vehicle at approximately 2:45 pm on 12/23/13, drove to a gas station, put the nozzle in the intake location and had the exact same result as before. gasoline spewed out and sprayed me again. i have safety concerns on a couple of levels: the spilled/spewed gasoline poses a fire hazard for me, the vehicle, the gas station, and those people around me who are also filling up, and having gasoline spilled on me is an obvious health hazard. *tr

multiple cars with same problems. http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=738498 tech line summary article if the ?tighten fuel cap? message is displayed on the mid but the vehicle passes the service manual troubleshooting, use the following procedure to check the evap canister purge valve: 1. run the engine at idle with the hood closed for 30 minutes 2. hold the throttle at 2,000 rpm and monitor ?evap pc duty? with the hds. 3. once the duty cycle reaches 90% or more, monitor the ftp sensor for 60 seconds 4. if the ftp sensor reading reads about 2.50 volts or if it fluctuates rapidly between about 2.3 volts and 2.5 volts install a known good evap canister purge valve 5. test-drive the vehicle for several minutes at highway speeds. if the fuel cap warning message stays off, replace the evap canister purge valve. if the warning message comes back on test the evap system for leaks.
