Thanks-Been there, done that- handed them the pages from this site and Club RSX detailing other Acura dealers solving the problem that way and was told wait out for the Acura TSB. Probably will call my other Acura dealer in the area and see what they are doing to resolve the issue. It's a different dealership.
I also don't know what the strut tower or strut tower changes were, or why the springs are rotating to make the clunk- would think Acura would have figured it out from 2005 to 2006 model.

We have had the EXACT same problem as you since day 1. I have been going to Acura in Temecula. They won't do anything now.
I was wondering since you are also in CA, if you have thought about doing the Lemon Law?
I am so disgusted with this car now. The other problem has been this wierd vibrating noise ONLY in 5th gear or 6th around 4000-4100 RPM. They first replaced the clutch assembly and then the noise came back. Then I take it back and they tighten something but it makes the clutch release too high. I haven't heard anyone else having this same noise. Am I the only one?? They basically said live with the noise. There's nothing we can do

My RSX has a noisy dash when it gets below 30 degrees.... at first i thought it was ice...but when its cold the parts just rub. I hear it in the dash and also on the ceiling by the lights
I also have the Strut popping noise, its being repaired right now, we shall see how it works? It started from day 1 as i was bringing my car home from the dealer.
Yeah, whats everyones opinion on the factory stereo? Its not really loud outside the car, but its crisp and clean inside..... lots of power in the front but the back speakers barely sound connected even if you put the power all to the back its maybe 1/3 the power coming from the front speakers. Lucky for me I drive it and don't sit in the back. Are they shitty speakers?? Or is it the stereo just not sending them enough juice?

Bought my 06 RSX in February. Had a tremendous rattle in the dash. Took it back to the dealer and they replaced the windshield. Rattle's gone.

Did it only make the noise in cold weather?? Too me that one sounded like loose windsheild.....but only in sub 30 degree weather..... my other noise is the strut. Going to pick it up now, lets see if its fixed.
How is your gas milage? I get about 21mpg city and 30highway.... about 5mpg less than the sticker claims... i do have a lead foot but on the highway its always on cruise doing close to the speed limit.

So what happened?
Did they fix it?
If so, what exactly did they do? I want to be prepared for my dealer WHEN this happens to me.
#818 of 1045 don't know if this has already been mentioned
Apr 24, 2006 (1:01 pm)
Three days after purchasing my 2006 RSX base manual I noticed two things...one for two days my keyless entry didn't work, and some various noises began to appear. They were subtle noises but still irritating for a car that just broke 1k miles!
#819 of 1045 strut noise
Apr 27, 2006 (9:23 am)
Well they fixed the strut problem. So far so good, no more noise there. I am concerned about the noise in sub 20degree weather that sounds like a windshield being loose. Unfortunatly I'll have to wait until next winter and I believe noises are only coverd under your first 12months, like adjustments and stuff. It was hard to keep those noises seperate from the strut noise untill the struts were 24/7. So far so good.......
Nobody picked up on my other question yet... on the standard RSX 2006 stereo.... are everyones back speakers so non existant or is it just mine? The front end sound is immaculate but the back speakers and like $4 computer speakrs from wal-mart.

You have three options:
1.See the dealer who sold the car to the first owner.
2.Check the owners manual.
3.Walk away from the deal.
I would choose option number 3 unless you are buying from a good friend.
