Acura Cl 2001
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Jan 05, 2009
Location:
Mt. Pleasant, SC

the key for my 2001 acura cl can be removed regardless the position of the car's automatic transmission shift lever. in other words, the lock-out that should prevent this from happening in any position other than "park" is not functioning. this has occurred all the time over a period of several months and i understand this is a problem on other honda manufactured vehicles. as a result of this issue, my car rolled into my garage door after i had shut it off and gotten out of the vehicle, having mistakenly left in "drive". damage minor. i have an appointment with the dealer for repairs (he doesn't believe me). since this is a potentially dangerous situation, a recall, or at least an owner alert, should be considered. *tr

i cannot open my drivers side door. i thought maybe it was an easy fix so i have gone to 3 different mechanics to have it checked. auto, mechanic, body shop mechanic an a locksmith, i even went to freeman stereo to see if it was electrical. they all said that it is the door catch, it is going to cost me 400.00. they also said that it is a defect in the catch and the body shop has had 4 honda, acuras he said in the last 2 months. he said that it is well noted that there is a problem with the catches. well, i cannot get out of the car in case of an accident. if they know there is a problem ( honda ) then they should fix it.

i feel there is a generic problem for all acura mdxs relating to the door lock actuator. the power door lock in the rear passenger door in my 2006 acura mdx stopped locking/unlocking 2,500 miles past the warranty. i now have to manually lock/unlock the door. if i forget the power lock in the door isn't working, my child sitting next to the defective door can open it ands fall out of the car. i've been reading a lot of complaints on the internet about this generic problem for all acura mdxs. *tr

i have a 2009 acura rl. while stopped at a light, the light turned green. after about 20 feet i needed to brake. the car accelerated instead of braking. we hit the car in front of us. only the driver air bag deployed. the front end of the car was damaged. non of the doors would open either from the inside or the outside. the trunk would not open either. i feel that because of the sudden acceleration, only one airbag deploying, and the doors refusing to open, that there is an electrical problem or something going on. *tr
