2009 Acura TSX Problems

A loud rattle type noise may be noted from the engine after a cold start. This can be caused by a faulty valve timing control actuator. Replacing the failed actuator will commonly correct this noise issue.

The rear brake pads wore out after 20k miles. There was still plenty of pad left on the front brakes, but it seems they designed the brakes with not enough meat on them for the rear. I've found other complaints of this issue from drivers oh the NHTSA site.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P2422. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by spider webs in the EVAP system charcoal canister vent hose. Acura has made available a spring to install inside the vet hose to correct this issue.

I love this car, but I needed new rear brakes after 24,600 miles. Is this normal? Most of my driving is freeway. All of the cars I've owned before required front brakes more often than rear brakes. Is the TSX engineered differently?

An affordable luxury car with nice features, but not a driver's car. The steering is so numb sometimes it seems like a chore to keep straight on the freeway. The brakes are horrendous and super sensitive which leads me to believe this combined with the bad rear break pads creates an issue! Only at 25k and dealerships are lying to me about replacement so they don't have to pay. Pretty sure they ...

Very happy with my TSX. But a warning if you do turn it on let it run for at least 2mins. If you turn it on then right off, it will be very difficult to get it back on. For what ever reason it kinda floods the engine with gas. I had to learn this the hard way. I commute to NYC for work & I use a parking garage, like most garages in NYC they move your car frequently to make room for more cars. S...
