the rsx is a brand new car that has only been on the market for about six weeks. the car has a very serious safety problem when driven by smaller adults. basically, smaller adults can not see effectively out of the car. i will fax a letter that i have written to the president of american honda motors with this form. i sincerely believe that it is just a matter of time before some drivers of the car are involved in crashes because they simply can not see out.*ak consumer states because the seat is so wide and tall, all she can see is the support beam between tht wo windows when looking left, the only way she can see out the right side of the car is to position the passenger seat in the full forward position and then tilt the seat back forward slightly. *slc

Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Apr 26, 2008
Location:
Merrimack, NH

to whom it may concern i am an owner of a 1999 model acura tl ┐ i bought it brand new in november of 1998 and have been driving this car ever since ┐ almost 194,000 miles. on saturday, april 26, 2008 i test drove a brand new 2009 model acura tsx at sunnyside acura in nashua nh. it was around noon time and the weather was clear and sunny. sunnyside┐s acura sales consultant (kristine miller) introduced me to the car, its electronics (this was a model with optional navigation system) prior to driving off. the test drive itself was uneventful until i needed to make a sharp u-turn. the u-turn was required in order to pull back onto sunnyside┐s acura parking lot. i was the first car at the traffic light to make a u-turn and while making it i drove over very low road divider. nobody was injured however the car itself was damaged by piece of a metal post that was embedded into road divider. i could not understand at the time why i could not see the road divider from the driver seat. i have used the same u-turn many times previously. i do not make it a habit of driving over objects on the road ┐ my driving history is a statement to that. later after comparing another brand new 2009 tsx directly to my 1999 tl i realized that my view of the road divider adjacent to my car was completely obstructed by new, ┐safer┐, high beltline doors of 2009 model acura tsx. in light of that ┐discovery┐ i ask following questions: 1.why were there absolutely not a single piece of information about this new safety feature and its consequences to the field of view provided to me by the dealership before test drive? 2.why would no warning label about such a significant change be included inside the car? 3.why would not provisions be implemented on a driver side rear view mirror to see a blind spot next to the car itself? sincerely *tr

Sept 03, 2009
Location:
Chandler, AZ

as i was driving on the freeway, i glanced over to my passenger and noticed something vibrating outside the front windshield. i pulled over and got out of the car to examine what it was. the molding around the passenger side of the windshield had come loose and was waving in the wind. luckily, it was still partially attached. i drove directly to an acura dealer who said the tape and clips holding the molding on had come loose...probably from the heat in arizona where i live). they ordered a new part and as they were replacing it, noticed the molding on the driver's side was coming off too so they replaced that as well. this was all under warranty so there was no cost. *tr

i bought a used 2004 acura tl. the dashboard crack is outlining the passenger side airbag. i'm trusting that this will not be a safety issue for any passenger if i ever get in an accident. i do not often drive other people, which frees me from worrying about repercussions. when i called acura's headquarters, the representative stated that he did not know that this was a widespread issue in this model and year. i've seen the group on facebook as well. the cracks are located consistently in the same area. *tr

i own a 2007 acura tl-navi. the front doors of the car are large and heavy. the part or parts of the door hinge mechanism which are supposed to hold the front doors in the open position when entering or exiting the vehicle appear to be under-designed for their intended purpose. as a result, the doors often close unexpectedly with significant force, and can seriously injure a hand or leg. the problem is especially severe when the car is parked in an uphill position, as the force of gravity causes the front doors to slam shut. i request that nhtsa require the manufacturer to re-design the hinge mechanism (or other parts that are defective) and offer them to owners at no charge. *tr

Location:
Darien, CT

while driving on a highway our acura mdx car's front right rim had an unexpected rupture as a result the car stopped in the middle of the road. on first reaction, we thought we had a flat tire but later we found out the tire was ok but the tire rim was weak and had a hole leading to release of air pressure giving a feeling of a flat tire. we took our car to nearest dealer at 70 miles from the scene and paid to change the rim. the dealer mentioned they had never seen anything like this before. it was very scary for us to be in that situation , we could have been in a serious accident if there was a moving vehicle behind us. we strongly believe acura has defective rim which are big safely issue. we are looking for a complete check of our car for any other safety issues and reimbursement of our time effort, and cost of replacement of new rim and bought tire. *tr
