    Only just about to get my 2014 RLX fixed over the headlight issue, about time that’s all I can say.

    Just had my 2014 Honda Civic fixed for free, so no more worrying about that airbag.

    It’s a bit of a worry that my 8-year old Acura MDX now needs a new transmission.

    Just noticed O2 Codes: P2195 P0141 appear on my 2018 TLX, has anyone else had such an issue?

  • Terry

    Can’t seem to get my iPhone 6 to connect to my car, has anyone else had this issue, and if so how did you get around this issue?

  • Norman

    I cannot believe it, my Acura MDX transmission has finally failed, and had to pay $1,000 for a complete rebuild.

  • Liam

    Why are there cracks appearing on the dash of my 2006 Acura TL, right near where the airbags are?

  • Brett

    What would cause my 2015 Acura TLX transmission to cause jerking while during and going through the gears? I know I could go to the dealer, but thought there might be a simple solution to resolve this.

  • Sarah

    What could cause my 2003 Acura TL to shake very badly during acceleration?

  • Sue

    When I both my 2014 Acura RDX I thought I was getting a decent car, yet this is not the case when going over bumps, as there is a horrible loud noise from the rear. After taking it back to the dealer they said that there was nothing wrong – does anyone know what could be the cause?

  • Jane

    If the brake light on my 2011 Acura RDX brake light comes in, does it mean the brakes are worn and needs replacing, or could it also mean something else?

  • Jules

    I wondered why the AC would no longer work on my Acura, until a found a huge hole on the condenser. Should I take this to a dealer for repair, or would an aftermarket part be fine to use?

  • Rudi

    Is it right that my 2001 Acura Integra paint has started to crack and peal? I was too something could have been sprayed on the car to cause this, but I am not convinced. If this was the case, then there would be some sort of pattern to suggest this.

  • Casey

    The speedometer is no longer working on my 1996 Acura Legend. It had been working, but erratically and so was just waiting for it to stop working completely. Is this a simple job, and also is it a costly one?

  • Baz

    There are often times while driving my 2014 Acura MDX that it stays in the same gear while driving at around 50 miles per hour and I slow own. Because it stays in the same gear until I come to a stop the ride is a little jerky. What could be the cause?

  • Mac

    When my 2001 Acura EL is running the Daylight Running Lights) displayed on the dash display creates a buzzing noise, I have followed the sound and it seems to be coming from one of the control modules below the glove box, but have not proceeded any further. Am I on the right path to solving the issue, or should I take it to a garage?

  • Rolando Dominguez

    I have a 2010 MDX. My Wife was driving it last week and all at a sudden the lateral airbag on driver side came out. She was driving 20 miles per hour, so she did not had any problems stopping. Any one has had that problem?

  • Rolando Dominguez

    The model is MDX 2010 on the comment below.

  • Maggie

    I have had the same ECU Code P1456 on my 1999 Acura Integra for for several years now, and yet have still been unable to resolve the issue. I took the vehicle to the dealership first, who were the ones to diagnose the issue, but they were unable to fix the issue. They had run several checks on what they thought could be causing the error code, but they drew a blank. I am and the end of my tether, and would like to finally put this problem behind me.

  • Dom

    My 2003 Acura CL has an issue with its engine, as the warning light came on, which I then took it to the dealer for inspection. I later found out that the valves are bent and so needs a complete engine rebuild. I just cannot understand how such a thing happens with a modern engine, and the fact it only has 45,000 miles on the clock. I have never driven the car like an fool, and always had it serviced on a regular basis. I just don’t know what to do, seeing as though the repair bill is far more than I can afford.

  • Henry

    I just don;t know what to do because my 1999 Acura EL 1.6 will stall for no reason, but not all the time. I have had the ignition system checked over, as well as the full pump and also the alternator and all of those are fine. This will happen no matter of the car is hot or cold, and can often take around dan hour for the engine to fire up again.

  • Mike

    I have been very happy with my 2011 Acura MDX, that was until the automatic tailgate button no longer works, as I can no longer program it for my garage door. I have tried everything, and it still does not work. I know it is not an issue with the garage door itself, as it recognizes the wife’s car just fine.

  • Eric

    For the first 5 minutes of driving my 1990 Acura there is a grinding noise from the ABS system, and also the anti-lock warning light comes on. However, after that time the noise stops and the car drives perfectly normal. I know this is something that needs to be fixed, but what could it be?

  • Daryl

    Has anyone else had an issue with the paint job on their 2015 Acura TL, as I have been told that mine is the worst paint job they have ever seen, and I have to wonder if this is a one-off, or whether more owners have the same issue as myself?

  • Michael

    The brakes on my 2008 Acura RDX needed to be replaced, although my local dealer does not have the parts, and so I have to wait until they get them in. Therefore I would like to know if I should go to a local garage and have them use brakes that have not been made by Acura?

  • Jeremy

    I’m confused as to why the Bluetooth system in my 2009 Acura MDX is draining the battery. The dealer came up with a few idea, at my cost, but never worked. Just so you know, the system takes around 10 times more power than it should.

  • Ally

    Every time I go over a bump in my 2012 Acura TL there is a loud banging noise coming from my suspension. I have since complained to the dealer, and they did repair it, yet the issue is back again – feeling very annoyed because the dealer is a 200 mile round trip from home.

  • Colin

    HI, I have an issue with the transmission on my 2001 Acura EL transmission, and have the Problem code:P0730, but what does this mean?

  • Dave

    Not at all happy about the paint on my 2010 Acura TL, as it has excessive checking. You would not think that such a thing would happen to an Acura. What I am not happy with is the fact that Honda said they will only pay for half the cost of a new paint job, surely that is not right?

    • Bella

      They won’t cover mine at all and the hood and top has no paint left on my charcoal gray tsx — it’s turned white!! Was led to believe they would cover the paint because it was their fault, but after a long wait, they declined w/o explanation. I asked for name of person that made the decision and they wouldn’t give it out! I was told to contact customer service! Lol. Never, ever again!

  • Jonas

    My 2003 Acura CL has an issue with its transmission, as the gears have started slipping. It first started when it sounded as though it went into neutral, but when I applied the brakes to slow the car down, it shifted down a gear. When I came to a stop I revved the engine and all it would do is rev and not pull away.

    I then took it to the dealer, where I was told the 3rd gear pressure switch, although I was told by a friend that it was the torque converter clutch solenoid. However, the dealer went ahead and replaced the switch, and it came as no shock that it started doing the very same thing again. What I do not understand is, the dealer is now telling me the entire transmission needs to be replaced.

  • Jacob

    I fell that the 2015 Acura EDX lacks LED lights because most other cars in the class has them. I was wondering if I should consider upgrading them to LED, or would this void the warranty, and be more trouble than what it is worth?

  • Dennis

    The check engine light on my 2005 Acura MDX has come on and also has the code 25-1 Yaw Rate Sensor and 26-1 Battery Voltage Malfunction. I am not too certain what these mean, so does anyone else have a clue before I spend a small fortune taking the car to the main dealer?

    I can be driving my Acura around town and all is fine, but on many occasions it will start to jerk after half an hour of driving, but only when in first or second gear. It is not a gentle jerk either, but a bit rough. I have no clue about such things, so any advice would be welcome.
