San Diego, CA

2006 acura mdx with 12000 mi has a ppg (windshield manufacture) windshield defect. windshield has a 20 inch (hook shape) edge crack from passenger side starting from the first two inches of the perimeter. probably cause is "residual stress" and "induce stress" due to installation or design flaw. both are manufacture defects. acura dealer refused to investigate and replace windshield defect. service manager claimed that it was a 140 mph impact. if that was true, the whole windshield would of been shattered. fact is, the point of impact is the size of a pencil tip. prior to discovering the crack, there is no apparent or obvious debris impact. actually, my wife was sitting in the passenger side the whole time until the crack started and nothing had struck the windshield. please investigate this issue. possible link to honda element's same issues. after all, honda makes acura. *nm

Acura Tl 2004
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Sept 17, 2013
Location:
Spring, TX

parked the car at night in the garage as it has always been since i bought the car new. car has always been pampered and has never spent time outside of a garage except for rare occasions visiting family out of town for the weekend. even with that, the car maybe spends a total of 30 some odd days a year in time sitting in the sun. went to take the car out to the store the next morning and noticed a large crack going from the windshield towards the passenger seat across the air bag. the next day 2 more cracks appeared, and the next day an additional 2 cracks. for a car that had been beyond well kept and pampered, not to mention a 'luxury' car, should not be in this state. i have friends with acuras and hondas much older than mine that have spent their entire lives sitting outside in the texas heat and have not a single crack on the dashboard, yet mine which has lived a "sheltered" life has over 6 now. after much research on the web, i noticed i am not the only owner with this issue. what makes this more annoying is looking at pictures posted from other owners, the places where the cracks form and grow are almost nearly identical. this is completely unacceptable for this brand of vehicle and the fact that a recall or an offer form acura to replace this dashboards has not been made. one or two people having the issue can be over looked. hundreds of people having the same issue in the same locations is a defect. acura should be held responsible for this. i bought this car because of their reputation. now their reputation has no meaning to me. if i hadn't paid so much for the car to start with and the fact that replacing it would be ridiculous for a car that for the most part is still like new would be insane. *tr

Acura Tl 2014
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Sept 09, 2014
Location:
Gibbsboro, NJ

after finishing work, i opened the car door, turned the ignition on and then shut the front door when all of a sudden i heard a loud boom. i turned around to see my rear windshield spontaneously shattered with glass everywhere including my 2 car seats. my concern is that this occurred spontaneously without trauma or change in temperature and if this occurred while in motion or if my grandchildren were in the car, they could have been severely injured. this car is newly purchased approximately 3-4 weeks ago and specifically because i was under the impression it was one of the safest cars. now to find that this is not the case, i am asking for a new acura tl or else i am considering trading it in for another new car. i cannot take any chances since i care for my grandchildren and need to make sure they are safe. another concern, is that even if they fix the damage, the windshield will be weaker than factory installed and may occur again. that cannot happen. i am extremely dissatisfied with this acura tl and will settle for nothing less than a new car or i will be forced to trade it in. *tr
