2005 Acura RL Owner Comments

problem #4

RL 6-cyl

  • 98,000 miles


Defect investigation EA13002 has 1 related recall NHTSA campaign id number: 13V092000 my car was not experiencing any problems at the time of this recall but I did take it in to have the service completed in June 2013. A couple of months ago my car started acting exactly as described in the complaint. While driving anywhere from 45-50 mph, the brakes will engage on their own, jerking the car to the side and the vsa warning light as well as the sh-AWD drive light will come on in the car. This happens on a consistent basis, at least every 3 days, sometimes every day. Apparently the problem still exists because the recall fix has not prevented this from continuing to happen. I took my car in to the local Acura dealership for diagnosis and was told the yaw rate sensor is giving poor information to the ECU and stability control system and I am supposed to pay $1050 to have a new yaw rate sensor installed. I do not understand why I would be responsible for paying for this when it is a defect and can cause injury to me or other passengers on the road.

Low brake pedal -- need a ABS/ vsa modulator- this is a safety defect that affects braking and should be a recall by Honda.

Fax fm consumer who's (or) disappointed in the way Acura handled the brakes and radio defects in their 2005 Acura Rl, ES have no records of prev. Correspondence. A part within the brake assembly was not made to fit properly and had to be retrofitted to stop the loud rattling and banging noise whenever the vehicle was driven over uneven pavement or rough surfaces. When the radio was turned on the screen displayed a code entry message and the radio would not work. Both problem were eventually repaired by the dealer.
