 Description of the problemMy issues with my car started about 3 years ago. I have had to replace the power steering rack and pump after the acura recalled the hoses, but i was told that the hoses had nothing to do with my issue. I have had to replace the starter, the headlight computer unit, and both ignitors in the headlight. I am on my third battery in 2 years and no one can tell me why my battery is continuously dying. About two years ago, the bluetooth system all of a sudden stopped working. In the last year, my dashboard has started to crack from the driver to the passenger side, and the damage is much severe and prominent over the air bag area. I was told by acura support that it should not cause any problems to the air bag, and the air bag should deploy appropriately with no problems. Prior to me purchasing my so-called "luxury" acura, i had a 2000 honda civic, and i never had any major issues with it. Thinking that i purchase an acura, and it was the worst mistake i've made in my life. I have advised all my family and friends not to purchase an acura because the quality sucks and it is a waste of your money due to all the money you have to put in for the repairs. In the past couple of months, i've spent almost $4000 on repairs for simple things like headlight issues and sensors. I spoke with acura customer care about assistance with repairing my dashboard and i was offer a 50% discount based on their criteria which i believe are ridiculous. One of the criteria that they look at is to see have you been a loyal customer as far as maintenance and repairs are concerned. I informed the guy that the nearest acura dealership is an hour and half away from my home, and it made no sense for my to drive the distance for an oil change. Completely fed up with acura!!
