constant repair and replacement of brake rotors. the rotors have to be resurfaced every 8 to 10,000 miles and then replaced. i have my car serviced regularly with the same garage and can't understand why these rotors continue to wear. i have a 1993 nissan max that has never needed rotor repair. also, the srs and side airbag lights come on, i take it to the dealer and they clear the lights saying nothing is wrong. how are you to know if this is a serious issue when all they do is clear the lights??? *tr

i purchased my acura tsx 2009 in june 2009. i currently have 25,000 miles, almost all of which are highway miles. just before 20,000 miles the rear brakes began to squeak. i brought the car to the dealer and sure enough the front brakes are totally fine and the rear breaks need to be replaced immediately, for $241. (as a side note: i contacted honda of america who claims to know nothing about the lawsuit honda has agreed to settle over exactly this problem, "unreasonable wear due to defective design that caused excessive force to be applied to the vehicle's rear wheels." *tr

Acura Tsx 2010
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:

Silver Spring, MD

my 2010 acura tsx has less than 23,000 miles, and it has not been involved in any accidents. recently i noticed a loud rattling and screeching noise in the back rear of the car. the noise continued to get more frequent and louder. i took it in to get serviced today (august 5, 2011) at the acura dealership, and their representative told me that it was "normal wear and tear" of the rear brakes and advised rear brake replacement. i asked when rear brakes generally need to be replaced, and she replied that it is usually every 20,000-30,000 miles. she also noted that the rear brakes were found on "squealers." i disagree with the "normal wear and tear" assessment; it is a safety defect. my family has owned 2 acuras as well as a nissan, toyota, saturn, and ford, and we have never had to replace brake pads at this low mileage when it was not a manufacturer's defect. when i got home, i looked up this issue online and found that there was a class action lawsuit on this specific defect. i did get the rear brakes replaced because i was very concerned about my safety as well as the safety of others while driving a car with defective brakes. based on the fact that there was a class action lawsuit, this manufacturer's defect affects many vehicles, and honda refuses to take action to correct their defective brakes. nhtsa should investigate and require honda to recall and repair this defect. thank you for addressing this safety issue. *tr

Mileage was 22900 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JH4CU26629C. Vehicle was not using anit-lock brakes. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Vehicle had 4 cylinders. Acura TSX 2010 Drive type:FWD.
