 Description of the problemOver a 24 hour period the a crack running the full width of the dash appeared immediately above the passenger side air bag. This has caused the airbag light to begin going on and off while driving. I do not know if the airbag is functioning properly. In the event of an accident it may mean that the airbag will not deploy or deploy correctly, or it may mean that the airbag deploys when it should not. It will also mean that shards of plastic from the dash will fly around the cabin causing additional and unnecessary injury to occupants. I will no longer allow passengers in my car for fear of the injury this may cause them. This is a well-known and well-documented problem with the 2005 tl. Acura corrected the problem with subsequent models and has replaced the dash for many of those who complained, labeling it "goodwill", but they have not elected to correct the problem on all and do not deal with it consistently. Please have acura issue a recall before someone is seriously hurt or killed because of this.
