since the second day of having my car, my car has been continuously plagued with problems. i have taken my car in for repair over 10 times for various and sometimes repeating problems. this all has occurred within a three year period. i have never had a vehicle that has had so many problems. some of the problems have been so severe that i no longer feel safe driving my car. one of these problems was my transmission spontaneously downshifting from 5th gear to 2nd gear at highway speeds. this caused a tremendous decrease of speed. had someone been in back of me, i would have been seriously injured. the transmission was replaced, but it continues to act spontaneously. after making complaints directly to acura of america, i feel snubbed by them in that they have not sought to assist me other than warranty repairs.

throughout the last week, i have attempted to contact someone at magna donnelly on several occasions regarding the following matter. as of 1:33 pm (est) on saturday, november 12, 2005, i have not yet received a response from anyone at magna donnelly. additionally, each time that i have called magna donnelly at corporate headquarters in troy, michigan, at (616) 786-7000, i am always prompted to a voice mail selection. i have left numerous voice mails for vp's carlos mazzorin and lian lynam and the corporate relations dept, and sent e-mails to customercarecenter@magnadon.com and suppliersupport@magnadon.com. i have reported to them that my 13-year-old daughter and i were recently exposed to the chemical substance used in magna donnelly's auto dim rear-view mirror manufactured between 1990-2000. the rear-view mirror in my 2000 acura tl recently stopped working after a black oil-based substance (with a green tint to it) began leaking all over my center console, front leather seats, and carpeted interior. this chemical substance has corroded my center consoles woodgrain interior and the silver plate surrounding my gear shift. i live in south florida and the national poison control center has instructed me to seek information from magna donnelly on the chemicals used in their rear-view mirrors manufactured between 1990-2000. according to the national poison control center, if this substance is, in fact, toxic, it could be quite lethal when inhaled...especially, in the hot florida sun. i have always been a very health, athletic female, but recently developed a constant low-grade fever, a kidney infection, and blood in my urine. if this substance can burn a hole through my gear shift plate, is it possible that the toxic fumes have affected my health and the health of my daughter? acura's headquarters stated that this information is not available to the public. *jb

i took my 2000 acura tl into the dealership to have the transmission replaced under the extended warranty. when i picked it up from the dealership 3 days later there was a dividing line in the top of the mirror. above the line and the mirror is clear, below the line the mirror is tinted. there appears to be fluid that has leaked out from in between two pieces of glass (one being the actually mirror glass and the other being a second layer a glass that traps this fluid. i have to keep something in the car to keep the liquid from dripping on the interior of the car, because it is my understanding that this fluid will destroy plastic and leather. i have contacted the mirror's manufacturer magna-donnelly, inc. i hope they will send me a free replacement mirror and that my interior is not ruined before the replacement arrives. *jb

i have the defective interior rear view mirror as reported by many others. a large clear bubble appeared at the top of the mirror glass and the rest of the mirror was tinted for a day, and the vision distorted. after reading many complaints of other owners experiencing this problem i contacted acura. they informed me that this problem was the fault of the oem equipment manufacturer, magna donnelly. i contacted them and they informed me by email that they are no longer replacing these defective mirrors as of jan 1, 2008. i may have injested the fluid that leaked from the mirror, as my coffee cup was in the holder, near wear the fluid destroyed dripped onto and destroyed my console. i am worried that the fluid is toxic, some reports on acura's engine state that it contains mercury. nobody will tell me what the fluid consists of. i believe a recall should be inacted to replace these dangerous mirrors with the solid (non-leak) replacement. the fluid does not wash off hands easily, and stains leather as well. i seem to have developed cold/flu-like symptoms since the incident - could just be a cold but who knows. *tr
