Acura Tl 2004
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Dec 20, 2003
Location:
Pleasanton, CA

the vsa (stability control) system on my 2004 acura tl malfunctioned. the system would cause the right front brake to activate by itself, causing the car to severly swerve to the right. after a half-second or so, the vsa would disengage and the fault indicator would lite up on the dashboard. the acura dealer was unable to diagnose the problem because vsa fault codes are not stored in the vehicle's memory after the car is restarted and the system automatically resets. this resulted in having to continue to drive the car until the fault re-occured. eventually, when it happened again, i was able to take the car directly to dealer and they were able to diagnose the car (because we left it running so as not to clear the code). the problem was traced to a yaw rate sensor in the vsa system. acura should make this information available to dealers. this poses a serious safety problem at highway speeds and there is nothing a driver can do to predict or prevent when this problem will occur. since my sensor was replaced, the problem has not happened again.*ak

i purchased a new 2004 acura tl last december. from the get go, the car has continuously pulled to the left. this car has been taken back 5 times to the dealership, tires replaced and still it pulls to the left. we have notified acura and a rep. came in but we were told that when we purchased the car i signed a document releasing acura from the "lemon law" i also consulted an attorney as well as wave tv 3 troubleshooter and was given this web site to log our complaint. we have all documents pertaining to how many times it has been worked on. this car is very much a lemon. in the first few months the blower for the heat also had to be fixed. basically the rep. from acura came here and said there is nothing he could do for us. needless to say i am angry. this has never happened to me before. and i was not aware that acura was exempt from ky's lemon law. please help this car is a hazard for the continous pulling to the left. *ak

i have owned this 2004 acura tl since jan. 2004. it has been at the dealership on at least 4 occasions due to a significant vibration. the vibration is most noticeable at about 60 mph. one can feel and see the steering wheel vibrate. the dealership replaced the tires (at no charge) with less than 20,000 miles due to premature wear. however, the vibration problem has never been corrected. in reviewing web sites it appears the vibration problem i am having is not an isolated incident, but one common to many acura tl owners. it seems that honda has an obligation to identify and correct the problem. *nm

my vehicle's steering wheel makes a moaning noise when the steering wheel turns left or right a low speeds. the acura dealer replaced the cable reel inside the steering wheel hub but the noise continues. i am afraid this noise is an indication that something inside the steering wheel will wear out eventually and cause loss of vehicle control. *tr
