I brought my car in for regular maintenance as well as sunroof not opening plus I noticed on and off when I start the car my steering wheel vibrates, only when starting the car. Following day I received a phone call that the motor needed to be changed for the sunroof and they also need to change my brakes (car has ~8K miles on it)-?? and not just brake pads, rotors as well. My front passenger side brakes were basically none existent, no idea for how long and I was told it-??s a manufacturers defect which was covered by warranty. I have a 4 year old and currently 5 months pregnant, needless to say I feel extremely unsafe now driving my not so cheap car.

All electrical systems failed while driving around 30mph, Power steering failed, power brakes failed, lane assist failed. We were at high risk of a crash due to lack of control of the car while driving. We were lucky that it happened on a flat road and we were able to manually pull over to the side of the road. The vehicle was inspected by the manufacturer and we were told that the car did show all the steering angle sensors did malfunction and fail. They said there is no known cause. They just recalibrated and reset the sensor and said it now is ok "at this time." There is no guarantee that the problem won-€™t happen again and put my family-€™s life in danger. Prior to this incident we repeatedly got the "BRAKE SYSTEM: Brake system problem, Brake performance may be reduced, See your dealer". We took it into the deal and was told nothing is wrong with the car and this is a known issue. Dealership Service video: https://app.truvideo.com/v/CbRSGHvo?s=46jtvtJ1AFXkZdwwQ3gE7pDBzV4dlDl0

The brakes are not working warning light has flashed several times. In numerous calls and dealer visits Acura has no resolution the say it-€™s under investigation. There is a service bulletin from May of 2021 but I was never advised of this issue and I am very uncomfortable driving the car with a brake problem.

The car is making extreme noise from the rotors and it-€™s screeching. I took the car to paragon Acura multiple times and they stated it-€™s normal. A brake sign pops up and the car seems extremely unsafe. I have videos to to show everything
