2009 Acura RDX QuestionsRefine by vehicle
FOLLOWING SHOWS P0420 AND P0299 - DEALER CHANGED CAT AND 2 SENSORS UNDER WARRANTY NOW SAYS IT IS MY TURBO -CAR WAS RUNNING FINE UNTIL I BROUGHT IT IN - WANTS $6K FOR REPAIR 50,000MILES ONLY.
The transmission cooler fitting disintegrated which led to a busted radiator. Acura took some off the bill but the new radiator, etc... still came to 700 dollars. I'm a consumer advocate and a family member came to me to fight this; after all the car only has 42,000 miles on it.
First I have to ask, is this something that can happen to cars in the northeast (acura points to salt on the ground in snowy weather)or did acura put something shoddy out and we should fight the bill? needless to say, he won't be buying an acura again. thanks!
The A/C works perfectly as long as the interior of the vehicle is cool or cooled. When the temp rises above 90 degrees F., the A/C compressor will not cycle on and the climate control blows like it was a hair dryer on high.
