2006 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 182006

TSX 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,318 miles


1st incident: The front brakes went out. I had them checked twice before the dealer replaced them. They reported they were low but blamed it on me. I complained in the beginning when I couldn't stop, and skid into intersections at red lights some times barely missing the cars in front of me. The dealers all said it was the way I was driving the car. I haven't driven this car any different from my previous cars that didn't have ABS. I've owned several new cars so I think I know how to drive a car properly by now. I've never worn down any brakes in my car inside of a few months of ownership. I have replaced front brakes on many of my cars once a year which is normal. This one shouldn't have been any different. There was clearly a problem with them in the beginning. 2nd incident: The engine light was coming on for no reason at 20,000 miles. The car didn't need to be serviced but the dealer was unable to determine why it was coming on. 3rd incident: The battery failed twice in one year. I owned a Mazda that the battery failed on and it only happened once. I owned that car 5 years and never had another problem with it after that. I find this odd that the battery failed twice. 4th incident: Some times the car didn't start, there was nothing wrong with the alternator or starter. I assumed it was the battery again. When it was running it would hesitate to move or would jerk while in motion. 5th incident: The driver seat belt would constantly jam preventing me from putting it on or adjusting it while on. While I was driving it would get so tight that I couldn't release it no matter what I did. I had to pull over and take it off in order to release the taught pull across my chest. I had to struggle with it for several minutes to get it on every day. This was from inception of ownership until I finally had it repaired not realizing it was faulty. Every other problem I have had over the years was not safety related that I'm aware of, and I've had many others since. Updated 06/07/10

Upon picking up the car the dealer has fixed the drivers and passengers squeaks as well as removed the grease stains and exposed felt tape and silenced the rattles from the seat belt adjusters by replacing them. All other problems remain. A third appointment is setup for 06.12.06. Between appointments (06.05.06) the seat belt adjusters begin rattling again. After picking up the car for the third time, the dealer finally fixes the scratch on the seat and re-replaces the seat belt adjusters. Again, all other problems remain. On approximately 07.15.06, the drivers and passengers seats began squeaking again, and now I must take the car to the dealer a fourth time.
