since the second day of having my car, my car has been continuously plagued with problems. i have taken my car in for repair over 10 times for various and sometimes repeating problems. this all has occurred within a three year period. i have never had a vehicle that has had so many problems. some of the problems have been so severe that i no longer feel safe driving my car. one of these problems was my transmission spontaneously downshifting from 5th gear to 2nd gear at highway speeds. this caused a tremendous decrease of speed. had someone been in back of me, i would have been seriously injured. the transmission was replaced, but it continues to act spontaneously. after making complaints directly to acura of america, i feel snubbed by them in that they have not sought to assist me other than warranty repairs.

Dothan, AL

it was a cold night in january and i was using the seat heater. my wife was with me. we smelled smoke as my driver's seat got very warm. we never saw flames, but there was smoke. we immediately pulled over and turned the seat off. it left a hole about the size of dime in my leather seats. i have contacted acura corporate to no avail. my car is out of warranty and they refuse to admit any issue. based on their assessment, i should have allowed the car to go up in flames, which would have happen had i not shut off the heater. *js
