RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Acura as reported by actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.Refine by vehicle
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.
The exhaust manifold commonly fails on the 5 cylinder engine and may develop an exhaust leak that is especially noticeable when the car is cold.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because the hydraulic valve that controls the engine valve timing stops functioning correctly. A failed engine timing valve will require replacement.
The Acura RL experiences occasional problems with sensors in the airbag system, causing the safety restraint system (SRS) light to turn on. The sensors can be very expensive to replace. Acura may offer a discount as a gesture of good will.
A faulty tire pressure sensor may cause illumination of the low tire warning light even if tire pressure are correct. If this condition occurs the affected sensor(s) should be replaced.
