 Description of the problemDate: 08/27/2020 my 2005 acura tl has a safety issue with the airbag system. The passenger dash has cracked on both sides of where the airbag is located. This issue occurred slowly over the course of about a year when the vehicle was stationary. As of a week ago, the red airbag warning light goes on and stays on (by the speedometer) when a passenger sits in the front seat. I have researched this issue and there are thousands of acura tl owners that have this same problem with the dash on the passenger side cracking and many have filed complaints with the nhtsa and have contacted acura. Even though all of the other acura tl model years through 2014 were part of the takata airbag recall, for some reason the 3rd generation acura tl model years 2004 - 2008 have not been recalled due to the takata airbag issue. I have read that it may be due to acura needing to remove the dash in order to replace the airbags, and that they don't want to incur the expense of replacing the entire dash. According to several acura tl owners, replacing the dash costs between $1,000 - $2,000 (for the owner) and doesn't take into account the safety issue regarding having the passenger airbag damaged due to the cracks in the dash and humidity getting in. This is a serious safety issue as the cracks could affect deployment of the passenger airbag, or cause it to deploy while driving and cause injury to the passenger or the driver. According to many posts i have seen online, this issue has been going on for over 5 years. Please investigate this safety hazard and notify acura. Acura needs to take responsibility for this widespread safety issue.
