MDX 6-cyl

I am writing because I just received a safety recall notice from Acura relating to: NHTSA action number : EA13002. My daughter was involved in an accident (she's ok!) where she had to swerve to avoid an oncoming car that had drifted into her lane rounding a left hand bend. Our 2005 Acura MDX went out of control despite her attempts to control the vehicle, which she did after it had blown out two tires. Could her braking and swerving result in the subsequent over correction of our MDX and be the result of the vehicle stability assist control module malfunctioning as described in the recall notice from Acura.

While driving on a highway our Acura MDX car's front right rim had an unexpected rupture as a result the car stopped in the middle of the road. On first reaction, we thought we had a flat tire but later we found out the tire was ok but the tire rim was weak and had a hole leading to release of air pressure giving a feeling of a flat tire. We took our car to nearest dealer at 70 miles from the scene and paid to change the rim. The dealer mentioned they had never seen anything like this before. It was very scary for us to be in that situation, we could have been in a serious accident if there was a moving vehicle behind us. We strongly believe Acura has defective rim which are big safely issue. We are looking for a complete check of our car for any other safety issues and reimbursement of our time effort, and cost of replacement of new rim and bought tire.
