car   Wiper problem 1
Failure Date: 03/11/2019

I was parked in an automatic carwash when my driver side airbag started dripping water on me. I'm afraid this could cause my airbag to deploy. I've also experienced crazy electrical issues intermittently that are not safe and I wonder if this is related. I also have a video if that is needed.

car   Wiper problem 5
Failure Date: 05/28/2014

Rear view mirror began to discolor, changes colors, and continues to make various formations within the glass. Additionally, the mirror has clouded. In researching the issue, internet articles and the dealers indicate that the mirror contains gas and fluids that diminish glare at night, but fails due to heat within the vehicle. If I do not remove and replace the mirrror, the mirror supposedly will start to leak corrosive fluids onto the interior portions of the vehicle and the mirror itself has the potential to explode. So, we have a known issue; a non-functioning rear view mirror; and a part that has the potential to injure vehicle occupants. . .

car   Wiper problem 7
Failure Date: 06/06/2010

On case pe07060 with Acura wipers. The fix Acura provided simply does not work. My wipers stopped working for no apparent reason during a storm (common in south florida). I almost got into a huge accident because I could not see. Thankfully I was able to pull over. The fuse is ok. When I took the vehicle to Acura they told me that they were aware of the ongoing issue but since the re-call was done that I had to pay for them to "look at it" and really fix the issue instead of the patch that was done.

car   Wiper problem 8
Failure Date: 09/11/2009

1. Recall campaign id# 08v092000 - 2004-2005 Acura Tl (windshield wiper motor); manufacturer report date: February 25, 2008 2. As per Acura, a wiper motor kit was installed June 27, 2008 on my 2004 Acura Tl. 3. On September 11, 2009 my windshield wipers became inoperable. I contacted the dealership and Acura client services immediately. I made an appointment to take my vehicle to the Acura dealership and was told that I would have to pay for the repair since the "recall" was complete. Although, the wiper motor kit was installed (June 27, 2008) as a preventive measure by the dealership, the wiper motor kit did not prevent my windshield wiper motor from the corrosion as mentioned in the defect notice, owner notification letter (part 577), recall acknowledgement and recall summary. The dealership ruled the repair on September 12, 2009 due to "wiper motor electrical fault".
