2008 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 262008


  • 500 miles


To whom it may concern I am an owner of a 1999 model Acura TL ┐ I bought it brand new in November of 1998 and have been driving this car ever since ┐ almost 194,000 miles. On Saturday, April 26, 2008 I test drove a brand new 2009 model Acura Tsx at sunnyside Acura in nashua nh. It was around noon time and the weather was clear and sunny. Sunnyside's Acura sales consultant (kristine miller) introduced me to the car, its electronics (this was a model with optional navigation system) prior to driving off. The test drive itself was uneventful until I needed to make a sharp U-turn. The U-turn was required in order to pull back onto sunnyside's Acura parking lot. I was the first car at the traffic light to make a U-turn and while making it I drove over very low road divider. Nobody was injured however the car itself was damaged by piece of a metal post that was embedded into road divider. I could not understand at the time why I could not see the road divider from the driver seat. I have used the same U-turn many times previously. I do not make it a habit of driving over objects on the road ┐ my driving history is a statement to that. Later after comparing another brand new 2009 Tsx directly to my 1999 TL I realized that my view of the road divider adjacent to my car was completely obstructed by new, 'safer┐, high beltline doors of 2009 model Acura Tsx. In light of that ┐discovery┐ I ask following questions: 1.why were there absolutely not a single piece of information about this new safety feature and its consequences to the field of view provided to me by the dealership before test drive" 2.why would no warning label about such a significant change be included inside the car? 3.why would not provisions be implemented on a driver side rear view mirror to see a blind spot next to the car itself" sincerely
