At 8000 miles the car developed a loud squeal from the drivers side wheel during left turns, also anytime the steering wheel is slightly moved to the left while driving straight. I took it to the dealer for service several times to correct it and after a few visits they seemed to finally correct it at the time. I believe they weren't sure the exact cause (anything from debris to brake caliber to brake clip was mentioned).
About 1 year later now 15000 miles I did a medium sharp left turn and immediately heard the problem return. After this it became persistent again and has now expanded to right turns or anytime the steering wheel is turned mostly left or right. Visited Acura dealership to correct the problem and they returned the car suggesting debris again. 2 days later the problem returns and is even more loud. I suspect all they did was spray the brake/rotor assembly with anti-squeal which is why it was quiet for the first day or two.
Its definitely a metal on metal causing this squeal. Something from the manufacturing process in the brake/rotor assembly is not mounted properly or not straight from the manufacturing process. This model is the opposite of precision crafted.
