Chandler, AZ

i have a 2001 acura mdx that i purchased new. in july, i noticed small drips of oil under the vehicle. upon getting it examined at a local mechanic, i discovered that the gas tank had developed a leak along its seam! i contacted the dealership(acura of tempe) and they said this would not be covered under warranty. i also contacted my insurance company (ameriprise) and they said this would not be covered under comprehensive coverage and to them it appeared to be a manufacturing defect. since the acura dealership had quoted me a cost of repair that was more than 30% higher than my auto shop, i chose to go with the latter. i feel this defect is a manufacturing defect, and could have been a very serious hazard if left untreated. acura should have paid for this repair. i would appreciate your suggestions / feedback: do you know of other complaints along the same lines? note: i have 2 pictures of the gas tank showing the leaks that i can send you if you like. *tr

Chesterland, OH

we purchases a 2010 acura rdx. my wife noted the fuel indicator stated she had 20 miles left before empty. before she could exit for gas (within 5 miles the vehicle ran out of gas). she was on a freeway in a very dangerous area at rush hour. the police brought in back up and set flares, then ordered the car to be towed due to the danger to my wife and the officers responding. we alerted our salesman at acura. he stated this was the 4th complaint he personally received about running out of gas due to a faulty calibration on the fuel indicator. i believe this issue has the potential to result in injuries if not deaths. in my opinion, a warning letter should be issued by acura. *tr

Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Jan 29, 2010
Location:
Deland, FL

on three occasions the gas pedal and brake pedal deployed at the same time on my 2009 acura rl. the third time this resulted in an impact on a parked vehicle. the brake pedal and accelerator pedal are two inches apart and when i step on the brake pedal it stops on a level equal to the accelerator pedal therefore it causes a circumstance that deploys both pedals simultaneously.(i actually find myself and my wife hitting the brake and the gas at the same time because the pedals are too close together). i reported the problem to acura in torrance ca. and to the dealership in sanford fl. and they said it the way the rl is designed and nothing can be done to fix the problem. we are concerned the vehicle presents a significant safety threat on the highway and i will trade it for another brand. by the way, this decision is not made lightly as i have purchased 11 honda accords and 2 acuras since 1980. this is truly a very sad ending for a loyal customer but our safety must be a priority. thank you. *tr
