2002 brand new Acura [xxx]. front fof lamps are made of breakable glass. So far I have had to replace twice. This glass id heavy/large chunks that could cause tire damage. This glass breaks in shards and it very dangerous. A piece blew up and scratched paint. The dealership is replacing the fog lights with same breakable. The 2003 models have changed to a non-breakable, but will not fit the 2002, this tells me engineering saw it was a problem. Someone could get hurt@. I filed via phone ( #1368) but the lady who took my info got it all screwed up. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
