TSX TSX Wagon 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,500 miles


While driving my 2011 Acura TSX wagon on 10 July 2021, the power steering failure indicator light came on while crossing a bridge and my power steering immediately failed. After the vehicle was towed home, I searched the manual and found there is no power steering reservoir to check for fluid. So I researched YouTube and found that this power steering has been a major problem with this vehicle. This is extremely dangerous and as I was on a bridge the danger was even greater as I could not pull over. I managed to safely exit but could not pull into a parking lot as there was not enough distance to keep the vehicle moving and I was unable to turn the wheel while the vehicle was almost at a standstill.

When I got the car home, I researched how to correct the problem. Since the manual was useless, I turned to YouTube and proceeded to check the fuse first. It was not blown.

The steering control module needs to be replaced and the authorized dealership wants $1500 to $2000 to replace. My car has been well maintained and just turned 80,000 miles. This is a safety issue and could have put me in a very dangerous situation since I was unable to steer my vehicle!

Please contact my husband as soon as possible about replacing the power steering module as I need the use of my car!

TSX Tech 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

At approximately 80,000 miles my car started making a whining noise when I accelerated. The "check power steering." indicator came on one day when I started the car and I was unable to move the steering wheel. I had the car towed home and I replaced the EPS, but the issue persisted. I reluctantly drove my car to the Acura dealership where they determined I needed a new power steering rack. A $3,000 repair. Sighs
