Known Problems

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to failure of the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve), or restricted passages in the engine related to the EGR system.

Acura extended the warranty due to numerous issues with the automatic transmission. Problems with the automatic transmission may make the car undrivable and can result in costly repairs.

The Airbag (SRS) warning light may illuminate due to one or more failed sensors. Our technicians recommend complete diagnoses of any stored fault codes because these sensors can be very expensive to replace.
