My 2010 Acura Tsx has less than 23,000 miles, and it has not been involved in any accidents. Recently I noticed a loud rattling and screeching noise in the back rear of the car. The noise continued to get more frequent and louder. I took it in to get serviced today (August 5, 2011) at the Acura dealership, and their representative told me that it was "normal wear and tear" of the rear brakes and advised rear brake replacement. I asked when rear brakes generally need to be replaced, and she replied that it is usually every 20,000-30,000 miles. She also noted that the rear brakes were found on "squealers." I disagree with the "normal wear and tear" assessment; it is a safety defect. My family has owned 2 Acura as well as a Nissan, Toyota, Saturn, and Ford, and we have never had to replace brake pads at this low mileage when it was not a manufacturer's defect. When I got home, I looked up this issue online and found that there was a class action lawsuit on this specific defect. I did get the rear brakes replaced because I was very concerned about my safety as well as the safety of others while driving a car with defective brakes. Based on the fact that there was a class action lawsuit, this manufacturer's defect affects many vehicles, and Honda refuses to take action to correct their defective brakes. NHTSA should investigate and require Honda to recall and repair this defect. Thank you for addressing this safety issue.
