  • Summary:
    HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2004 THROUGH 2008 ACURA TSX PASSENGER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 25, 2002 AND FEBRUARY 13, 2008.

  • Consequence:
    OIL LEAKING ONTO A HOT EXHAUST PIPE WILL GENERATE SMOKE AND A BURNING SMELL, AND COULD POTENTIALLY RESULT IN AN UNDER HOOD FIRE.
  • Remedy:
    HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPAIR THE VEHICLES FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN MAY 28, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ACURA CLIENT SERVICES AT 1-800-382-2238.
  • Report Receipt Date
    03-15-2013
  • NHTSA Campaign:
    13V093000
  • Summary:
    Honda is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Acura TSX vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. In states that use corrosive materials for deicing, driver's footwear may bring in materials that saturate the vehicle's carpeting, which is in contact with the vehicle's engine Electronic Control Unit (ECU). As a result, the ECU case may experience rust or corrosion. This damage may potentially cause the engine to stall.
  • Consequence:
    A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy:
    Honda will notify owners and Acura dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace any damaged ECU, free of charge. All vehicles will have a waterproof cover installed onto the ECU, free of charge. The recall began during April 2013. Owners may contact Acura Client Relations at 1-800-382-2238 and select option 4 or go to www.recalls.acura.com.

  • Summary:
    Dorman Products, Inc. (Dorman) is recalling certain Accelerator Pedal Assemblies part numbers 699-114 and 825-5029-1, sold as replacement parts for 2003-2006 Acura MDX, 2004-2008 Acura TL and TSX, 2003-2007 Honda Accord, 2005-2006 Honda CR-V, 2007-2011 Honda Element, 2005-2008 Honda Pilot and 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline vehicles. The rotating portion of the accelerator pedal assembly may bind. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 124, "Accelerator Control Systems."
  • Consequence:
    If the accelerator pedal binds, the engine may not quickly return to idle after the pedal is no longer pressed, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy:
    Dorman will notify owners, and qualified service facilities will replace the affected accelerator pedal assemblies, free of charge. The recall began December 9, 2019. Owners may contact Dorman customer service at 1-800-523-2492, using option 5. Dorman's number for this recall is AS1019XXXX.

  • Summary:
    DRIVERS SEAT SQUEAKS AND CREAKS WHEN WEIGHT SHIFTS. THIS IS MOST NOTICEABLE WHEN MAKING LEFT TURNS. THERE ARE 7 PAGES OF OWNERS ON AN ACURA TSX OWNERS WEBSITE THAT ALSO EXPERIENCE THIS PROBLEM. MANY HAVE TAKEN IT TO THEIR DEALER AND EITHER THE SEAT BASE OR RAILS ARE REPLACED OR TIGHTENED. SOME DEALERS MENTIONED THAT THESE WERE EITHER ALIGNED IMPROPERLY OR ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE WEIGHT AND THEY EITHER BEND OR SHIFT. IN MANY CASES, THE FIXES THE DEALERS PERFORMED DID WORK AND THE NOISE RETURNS SOON AFTERWARDS. WHILE THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLY NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, IT IS A BUILD PROBLEM WITH THE REDESIGNED 2006 TSX. THE SEAT SYSTEM IN THIS MODEL YEAR IS NEW DUE TO THE ADDITION OF THE POWER-ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM. A $28K CAR SHOULD NOT HAVE SQUEAKS AND CREAKS. *JB

  • Summary:
    BOUGHT A USED 2006 ACURA TSX AT AN AUTO AUCTION IN DECEMBER, 2008. I NOTICED THE TIRES WERE WORN UNEVENLY SO I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC FOR AN ALIGNMENT. HE IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THAT THE REAR WHEELS HAD A FAIRLY NOTICEABLE NEGATIVE CAMBER, MORE SO ON THE RIGHT REAR THAN THE LEFT REAR, OF ABOUT 2 DEGREES, THEN WHEN HE PUT THE CAR ON THE RACK, HE FOUND THE FRONT TIRES HAD A SMALL TOE IN PROBLEM THAT COULD BE ADJUSTED BUT THE REAR SUSPENSION HAD NO PROVISION FOR ADJUSTMENT OF THE CAMBER. I DID SOME INVESTIGATIONS ON THE INTERNET TO SEE HOW OTHERS WERE DEALING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, AND FOUND THAT A LOT OF OTHER TSX OWNERS WERE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THAT THERE WERE SEVERAL AFTERMARKET MANUFACTURERS MAKING REAR SUSPENSION ADJUSTMENT KITS. I THEN STOPPED IN TO MY REGULAR ACURA DEALER REPAIR DEPARTMENT AND TALKED WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER TO SEE WHAT COULD BE DONE. HE SAID THAT IF I HAD BROUGHT THE CAR IN DURING THE WARRANTY PERIOD, I WOULD HAVE BEEN COVERED, BUT SINCE THE CAR WAS OVER THE 50,000 MILE WARRANTY PERIOD, I WAS OUT OF LUCK. I ASKED HIM WHAT THE FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS WERE FOR THE REAR CAMBER, AND HE TOLD ME THAT IT WAS A MINUS 1 DEGREE, PLUS OR MINUS 30 MINUTES. I PRESSED HIM FURTHER, POINTING OUT THAT THIS DEFECT WAS BUILT INTO THE CAR AND THAT THE MILEAGE ON THE CAR HAD NO BEARING ON THE AMOUNT OF CAMBER, AND THAT IF I HAD BROUGHT THE CAR IN TO THEIR SHOP TO GET THE REAR CAMBER BROUGHT INTO FACTORY SPECS, THE SHOP WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT WITHOUT A NEW REAR LINKAGE KIT. I HAVE NOTICED THE REAR CAMBER PROBLEM ON MOST TSX'S IN THIS GENERATION OF THE CAR WHEN I'M OUT AND ABOUT. THE SERVICE MANAGER DID TELL ME THAT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT YOU ONLY GET 25-30K MILES OUT OF A SET OF TIRES ON A TSX, AND I AGREED BUT POINTED OUT THAT WAS ONLY BECAUSE THE REAR CAMBER DESIGN DEFECT CAUSES GREATLY INCREASED WEAR ON THE INNER PART OF THE TIRE. MY MECHANIC USUALLY SETS THE REAR CAMBER AT A -1/4 TO 1/2 DEGREE, AND WE CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY THE ACURA DESIGN TEAM DID THIS. *TR

  • Summary:
    1ST INCIDENT: THE FRONT BRAKES WENT OUT. I HAD THEM CHECKED TWICE BEFORE THE DEALER REPLACED THEM. THEY REPORTED THEY WERE LOW BUT BLAMED IT ON ME. I COMPLAINED IN THE BEGINNING WHEN I COULDN'T STOP, AND SKID INTO INTERSECTIONS AT RED LIGHTS SOME TIMES BARELY MISSING THE CARS IN FRONT OF ME. THE DEALERS ALL SAID IT WAS THE WAY I WAS DRIVING THE CAR. I HAVEN'T DRIVEN THIS CAR ANY DIFFERENT FROM MY PREVIOUS CARS THAT DIDN'T HAVE ABS. I'VE OWNED SEVERAL NEW CARS SO I THINK I KNOW HOW TO DRIVE A CAR PROPERLY BY NOW. I'VE NEVER WORN DOWN ANY BRAKES IN MY CAR INSIDE OF A FEW MONTHS OF OWNERSHIP. I HAVE REPLACED FRONT BRAKES ON MANY OF MY CARS ONCE A YEAR WHICH IS NORMAL. THIS ONE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY DIFFERENT. THERE WAS CLEARLY A PROBLEM WITH THEM IN THE BEGINNING. 2ND INCIDENT: THE ENGINE LIGHT WAS COMING ON FOR NO REASON AT 20,000 MILES. THE CAR DIDN'T NEED TO BE SERVICED BUT THE DEALER WAS UNABLE TO DETERMINE WHY IT WAS COMING ON. 3RD INCIDENT: THE BATTERY FAILED TWICE IN ONE YEAR. I OWNED A MAZDA THAT THE BATTERY FAILED ON AND IT ONLY HAPPENED ONCE. I OWNED THAT CAR 5 YEARS AND NEVER HAD ANOTHER PROBLEM WITH IT AFTER THAT. I FIND THIS ODD THAT THE BATTERY FAILED TWICE. 4TH INCIDENT: SOME TIMES THE CAR DIDN'T START, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR OR STARTER. I ASSUMED IT WAS THE BATTERY AGAIN. WHEN IT WAS RUNNING IT WOULD HESITATE TO MOVE OR WOULD JERK WHILE IN MOTION. 5TH INCIDENT: THE DRIVER SEAT BELT WOULD CONSTANTLY JAM PREVENTING ME FROM PUTTING IT ON OR ADJUSTING IT WHILE ON. WHILE I WAS DRIVING IT WOULD GET SO TIGHT THAT I COULDN'T RELEASE IT NO MATTER WHAT I DID. I HAD TO PULL OVER AND TAKE IT OFF IN ORDER TO RELEASE THE TAUGHT PULL ACROSS MY CHEST. I HAD TO STRUGGLE WITH IT FOR SEVERAL MINUTES TO GET IT ON EVERY DAY. THIS WAS FROM INCEPTION OF OWNERSHIP UNTIL I FINALLY HAD IT REPAIRED NOT REALIZING IT WAS FAULTY. EVERY OTHER PROBLEM I HAVE HAD OVER THE YEARS WAS NOT SAFETY RELATED THAT I'M AWARE OF, AND I'VE HAD MANY OTHERS SINCE. *TR UPDATED 06/07/10*JB

    POWER STEERING RACK FAILED UNEXPECTEDLY. CAR DEVELOPED A NOISE WITHOUT ANY WARNING, AND THE STEERING BECAME HARD TO TURN. MADE IT TO THE REPAIR CENTER (DEALERSHIP) WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS, BUT THE STEERING WHEEL WAS REALLY HARD TO TURN BY THE TIME I GOT THERE (WITH A DRIVE NO LONGER THAN 10 MILES). LOOKING AT ONLINE FORUMS, IT APPEARS THAT AN ABNORMAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE NEEDED POWER STEERING RACKS BETWEEN 90K-130K MILES DUE TO LEAKS. THIS APPEARS ABNORMAL, AS MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT A RACK SHOULD LAST FOR THE LIFE OF THE CAR. THIS MAKES ME WONDER IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE POWER STEERING LEAK TSB THAT ACURA HAS FOR THESE CARS. *JB

    MY WIFE LOST CONTROL OF OUR 2006 ACURA TSX AND HIT A CONCRETE BARRIER HEAD FIRST AT APPROXIMATELY 50MPH. THE AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. BOTH FRAME RAILS WERE BENT AND EVERYTHING AT THE FRONT OF THE CAR WAS PUSHED BACK TOWARDS THE ENGINE. THE FENDERS WERE BENT, THE BUMPER WAS DESTROYED, THE DOORS DIDN'T OPEN AND CLOSE PROPERLY. MY INSURANCE DECLARED THE CAR A TOTAL LOSS B/C OF THE SEVERE DAMAGE. DESPITE THE SEVERE ACCIDENT, THE AIRBAGS FAILED TO DEPLOY. MY ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT ACURA AND GET A RESPONSE FROM THEM REGARDING THE MATTER HAS BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL. THEY JUST SAID "THE CAR DETERMINED THEY WEREN'T NECESSARY" AND BLEW ME OFF. THEIR RESPONSE IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO ME, ESPECIALLY SINCE MY WIFE SUSTAINED NECK AND BACK INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THE CRASH. I WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED, AND MAKE SURE OTHER VEHICLES OUT THERE ARE SAFE B/C THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE. SAFETY FEATURES SHOULD BE FUNCTIONAL. *TR

    I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE 2006 ACURA TSX. EVER SINCE THE FIRST DATE OF PURCHASE, THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKES PADS WERE NOT ALWAYS STRONG ENOUGH TO STOP THE VEHICLE. I ALWAYS HAVE TO PUSH DOWN THE BRAKES HARD IN ORDER TO STOP. I DO NOT USUALLY DRIVE THE VEHICLE IN THE SNOW. HOWEVER, IN APRIL 2014, I WAS DRIVING THE ACURA TSX IN A TURN ON A 15 MILES PER HOUR UNDER SNOW CONDITION, AND I PRESSED THE BRAKES HARD. THE CAR TOOK TOO LONG IN DISTANCE TO BRAKE, AS A RESULT, THE FRONT BUMPER AND BOTH FRONT WHEEL RIMS WERE DAMAGED AS THE CAR HIT THE CURB. THE INCIDENT RESULTED DUE TO THE WEAK BRAKING SYSTEM. *TR

AFTER RESEARCHING ON THE NETS I SEE THAT THIS DOESN'T JUST APPLY TO ME AND THAT THIS IS AN ISSUE OTHERS HAVE HAD. THE DEALER STATED IT IS THE ACTUATOR. SECONDLY I AM HAVING AN ISSUE WITH WHAT THE DEALER SERVICE STATED IS A RACK IN PINION ISSUE. THEY SAY IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED DUE TO POWER STEERING SEEPING/LEAKING AND THAT THIS WOULD BE THE REASON FOR STEERING PROBLEMS. AGAIN ON NHTSA THIS SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE WITH THIS MODEL YEAR. I NOTICE VIBRATION AND SLIGHT PULLING TO RIGHT WHEN DRIVING AND DROPS OF LUBRICANT IN MY GARAGE. WHEN I REACH EXCESS SPEEDS OF 55 I HAVE THE PULLING AND VIBRATION. I NOW MAINLY TAKE SIDE STREETS DUE TO THE HAZARD AND NO FUNDS TO FIX THIS ISSUE.

    I RECENTLY EXPERIENCED A COMPLETE FAILURE OF THE POWER STEERING RACK DUE TO A MAJOR LEAK OF FLUID TO THE POINT I COULDN'T MOVE THE STEERING WHEEL. THANK GOD IT HAPPENED RIGHT AFTER I GOT HOME FROM DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. JUST WHEN I PULLED TO PARK IN THE DRIVEWAY AND FOUND OUT THE FLUID IN THE RESERVOIR WAS COMPLETELY DRAINED AND EMPTY. I ADDED NEW POWER STEERING FLUID AND WITHIN AN HOUR IT LEAKED ALL OUT. TOOK IT TO AN INDEPENDENT SHOP A FEW DAYS LATER DUE TO THE HOLIDAYS AND FOUND OUT THE RACK AND PINION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED DUE TO THE BREAKDOWN OF THE SEAL ON BOTH SIDES. A WEEK BEFORE THIS HAPPENED, I TOOK MY CAR ON A 1200 MILES ROAD TRIP. I CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY THAT IT DIDN'T BREAK DOWN WHILE I'M DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AS THE RESULT COULD HAVE BEEN FATAL. CONTACTED ACURA CLIENT SERVICE MANAGER AND I WAS TOLD THERE WAS A RECALL ISSUED FOR THE POWER STEERING BUT IT WAS FOR A DIFFERENT PART, A HOSE, AND THAT MY REQUEST FOR REIMBURSEMENT FOR A DIFFERENT PART WOULD NOT BE COVERED. EVEN THOUGH IN MY OPINION THIS IS THE SAME SAFETY ISSUE FROM THE SAME COMPONENT, THE POWER STEERING. I QUESTIONED THE LOGIC OF THE MANAGER'S REASON FOR DENIAL AS THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE SAFETY OF THE PERSON DRIVING THE VEHICLE SHOULD THE POWER STEERING FAILS, REGARDLESS OF WHICH PART WITHIN THAT COMPONENT WAS RECALLED. UNFORTUNATELY, SHE DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUSNESS AND THE GRAVITY OF THIS PROBLEM. THEREFORE, I AM HERE WRITING THIS COMPLAINT SO HOPEFULLY, SOMEONE CAN UNDERSTAND AND RELATE TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN MY CASE.

    POWER STEERING PUMP FAILURE APPROXIMATELY 2 YEARS AGO, REPLACED. SHORTLY AFTER, ALTERNATOR FAILED AND I WAS TOLD THIS WAS BECAUSE OF BEING SATURATED WITH THE FLUID FROM PREVIOUS FAILURE. NOW THIS... WIFE WAS DRIVING CAR HOME WITH MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. SUDDENLY THE CAR BECAME EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO TURN AND THE STEERING WHEEL WOULD “WOBBLE.” THIS WAS A DANGEROUS SITUATION BUT MY WIFE MADE IT HOME SLOWLY. I IMMEDIATELY CHECKED POWER STEERING FLUID AND RESERVOIR AND IT WAS LOW. FILLED IT UP WITH LEFTOVER HONDA FLUID AND LEAKED IMMEDIATELY FROM THE DRIVER RUBBER BOOT NEAR RACK AND PINION. RACK AND PINION NOW NEEDS REPLACEMENT FROM A MASSIVE LEAK. THIS IS BECOMING A COMMON OCCURRENCE AND PLACING MANY IN A DANGEROUS SITUATION WHILE DRIVING.
