i am not the owner of the vehicle. the owner was my niece jillian tennyson, she and her sister allison tennyson were both killed in car accident on 1/2/99. their car was split in 2 directly behind the front seats. the state troopers said they have never seen a car do this. it was like the car was a hot cube of butter sliced in 2. from what i understand ,the car has a "unibody" which i understand to be all one piece. after the car split into 2. the drivers seat failed. it fell completely backwards which allowed my niece to be ejected out of the back of the car, or lack there of. my intent is not to go after acura. i want the car investigated to be sure that it wasn't faulty. if we find it was i only want to have this information to avoid any further situations like what happened to our family. maybe a recall is needed. thank you for your time and concideration. *ak

rattling sound at the steering wheel column/dashboard area. i had my car for about 5 months now and i had to bring my car back to the dealership for service 4 times. the first service they've said that it was the suspension, so they retightened all the bolts in the suspension. the second through the fourth service they've tightened the bolts of the center console and the glove compartment. during the forth service time the service tech said that they couldn't pinpoint where the rattling sound was coming from. after doing some research ive noticed a trend of complaints of this situation. *tr
