i have a 2003 acura cl s type at 400 miles a tire was michelin tire was replaced for a bubble in the tire wall, the car is less than a year old and with 11,000 miles. i have replace two more tires for bubbles. now a fourth tire has a bubble. i am told by acura and michelin that these are caused by pot holes. there is no rim damage and i was told by costco that this is a big problem with this type acura because of suspension. this is not safe, some bubbles are on inside walls and can not be seen. i don't believe any testing was done. this tire should be outlawed. no one wants to take responsibility and i can not afford to replace tires every month these tire are brand new and michelin is making a ton of money. i have read many complaints where people have crashed. i would like to avoid this....i would like either michelin or acura to address this problem or i would like to get out of my lease since i was not aware of the unsafe condition of my vehicle. *ak *jb

Safety incident date:
June 18, 2004
Location:
South Riding, VA

i've purchased the 2004 tl on october 2003. since the very beginning, the car would constantly vibrate at higher speeds (primarily at 55+mph). took the car to the dealer for wheel alignment and balancing. the problem didn't go away. six months later, acura replaced my bridgstone tires with a new re-fromulated tires. as a result, the vibration felt at higher speeds weren't as severe (though still present). after driving for a month, the same level of vibrations at higher speeds returned. i've been attempting to resolve the issue with my dealer and acura for 8 months now, but as of today, no resolution has been forthcoming. vibrations felt at 55+mph, is a serious safety issue and i believe acura should be more proactive in resolving this matter.*ak

my car has been to the dealer twice for replacement tires due to vibration throughout my car. the second time my tires were replaced with the updated el42, and the vibrations still persist, along with the fact that the car now pulls to the left. when i called criswell acura of annapolis, i was told that the pulling to the left was not an alingment problem it was a tire pressure issue. so i took my car back to the dealership and they properly inflated my tires. and of course my car still pulls to the left. *ak

vehicle has a vibration between 52-64 mph. feels like you are driving over rumble strips. the dealer and factory have attempted to repair 4 times and over 19 day in shop and still the vibration is present. my fear is the vehicle transmission, drive train, steering or brakes could fail at any moment due to part fatigue. there seems to be no repair in plan to resolve this problem can you please help. *nm

Safety incident date:
Apr 13, 2006
Location:
Westminster, CO

2003 acura tl type-s experiencing excessive wear on only the driver's side front tire. car was taken to an acura dealer for service. upon inspection of the vehicle, the acura mechanic indicated that the problem has been seen previously on several other vehicles of the same make/model and that the problem was related to the traction control system (vsa) allowing slippage of the front driver's side tire during right turns. acura stated that there was no resolution available and the only recourse was to rotate the tires on a more frequent basis. tire dealer was asked if there were any known issues with the tire itself (michelin) and indicated that there were no service notifications issues from the manufacturer. the wear on this tire is heavily accelerated and was only noticed on a routine examination of the vehicle. based on the statements by the acura mechanic, i believe there to be a problem with the traction control system that allows the front driver's side tire to slip, thereby causing the excessive wear. given winter driving conditions, this slippage was increased due to the loss of road traction. if unnoticed, the tire would have failed (with less than 28000 miles) potentially causing significant damage to the vehicle. the worn tire is available for inspection and pictures of the tire in comparison to the passenger side front tire are available upon request. *nm
