 Description of the problemI am an owner of a 2005 acura tl that i purchased with 5,000 miles on it in 2007. This is my second tl and third honda all purchased through the acura dealer. My vehicle has been kept in mint condition and has always been serviced by montgomeryville acura in pa. In august of 2014 i noticed a large crack in my dashboard that ran along the front passenger side airbag area. A week later my airbag light came on and stayed on for 2 days without anything in the passenger side seat. It now randomly comes on at anytime during the day. I live in the north and have always kept a windshield cover on when not driving to protect my leather seats. I never used any type of product on the dashboard just wiped it with a clean towel to keep the dust off. I had no idea that this would happen to a 35,000 dollar acura tl dashboard. Reading several post it is a very common occurrence among 2004 - 2007 acura tl owners. I am extremely upset and very concerned about the possibility of airbag failure if the situation arose. I am considering legal action but would first like to see if this can be settled through good faith with acura.
