Brand new Acura MDX 2016 was purchased from weir canyon Acura Honda in anaheim, California on March 18th 3/18/2016. It has 40K bumper to bumper warranty per paperwork and dealer plus purchased extended 100,000 8-year warranty for any defects, etc. Again bumper to bumper. Within one week on 3/25/2016 within only 190 miles on the odometer on this brand new $60K vehicle glass windshield defect was noticed with cracking despite not seeing or hearing anything hit the windshield. It was driven on California freeway home from anaheim to North san diego county (120 miles.) upon noticing the defect the dealer was contacted but they said anything can hit the glass and said will do nothing about it. (contacted eli sales manager and paul swim general manager of weir canyon Honda Acura) then performed a search on the internet and noticed many other Acura owners have glass breakage and cracking issues and there are blogs and entries from Acura owners on the internet's google search of Acura glass cracking breakage and it seems to be a common trend. So I proceeded to contact dealer again to discuss it some more with the dealer and explained to them this is brand new vehicle purchased with new auto warranty plus additional $3000 extended warranty from your dealership so why are you not performing customer care and care about defect in your vehicle's safety component (windshield) but they hung up the phone or used profanity when called back. Paul swim general manager even commented that even one of his own loaner dealership vehicles has a crack break on the windshield glass despite being new. Opened case with Acura headquarters in torrance ca on 3/29/16 case# 4559849 but talking to their manager (juan) and district manager they refused to be accountable and ignored complaint as well. The front windshield is basically weak fragile and unable to provide reasonable safety.

Went for a car wash and when they vacuumed or removed the weather tech floor mats the sensor was damaged. Most anything that goes below the seat can break or damage the sensor ribbon wire. It is completely exposed on the seat frame with no protection. The Acura cost to repair for parts and labor is $993.42 plus tax. "this repair is not under warranty since it was broken, only manufactures defects are covered under warranty."
