I'm having the same issue. I was also on the freeway when my VSA light came on the brakes just locked. Only with my 2006 Acura MDX, one of my front and one of my rear brakes, aren't working. I had to tow it to the dealership because the brakes just wouldn't engage at all now. If this is going to be a pervading issue, I would say a class action suit is in order.
#2021 of 2044 B1 service cost. 08 MDX
Apr 30, 2012 (9:01 am)
Was wondering what others have paid.
I was quoted $119 + tax for B1 service. This includes tire rotation, oil change, any bolt tigthening, lubrication, parking brake adjustment, e.t.c. I know that i can perform most of the visual inspections myself though if parking brake needs adjustment that i would rather not do. (even though read it's not hard specially if the internal screw needs tightening).
THe cost of A1 service (oil+rotation) is $60 + tax
Thinking to pay the extra $60 for the other stuff to make sure all "recommended" service is done and is on record.
Wondering if the cost is reasonable ?
This is in Dallas area.
#2022 of 2044 Inside lights
Aug 09, 2012 (12:14 pm)
Was wondering if anyone also has this issue. I have noticed that on my '05 MDX, the lights that illuminate some of the switches (cruise, fog lamps), seat heaters, homelink, etc are no longer workiing. The switch works, but when ON they do not illuminate the pale green lights.
Is this something I can fix? Where do I even start ordering these bulbs for these switches?
#2024 of 2044 Involuntary Airbag deployment 2003 MDX
Aug 20, 2012 (12:41 pm)
Have a 2003 MDX , 82 K miles - well serviced .
Wife driving at 15 MPHR - both front airbags deployed suddenly for no reason - no bumps on the road no impact to car whatsoever .
Car towed to dealer who is looking at it .
Called Acura client relations and reported the incident to them and NHTSA .
Acura interested in knowing if my wife hit something- was told no - they wanted me to contact my insurance company , I refused as this was not an accident-they will get back to me by end of the week .
Will keep you posted - now wife wants to drive a car with NO airbags whatsoever

Wow, that's highly unusual. Was any work done recently to the vehicle?

No - mostly routine oil change , transmission fliud change etc done 1-2 weeks prior to this event .
Googled this- looks like there are few reported events like ours - all blamed on the driver for hitting something - just like us the drivers swear they didn't .

Nov 05, 2012 (7:22 pm)
So little more than 2 years and i put around 30,000 miles on the Nitto tires.
Was told by Discount that it's the last rotation and probably have another 7000-8000 miles left on the tires.
Overall was satisfied looks like will get about 35,000 miles out of them.
The price for the tire has gone up by almost $50 each. (will see if i can find a cheap price on the net and then have discount match it).
Anyone else have any experience with them ?
#2028 of 2044 Re: Dealer Reset my Odometer [bluenoser1]
Jan 26, 2013 (7:29 am)
My problem is the same: 2003 Acura MDX with faulty fuel gauge reading. I told the dealer (Honda, not Acura), that since the trip computer was working I didn't think it was the fuel sender. But they replaced it, replaced the gauge, and it still didn't work. They sent it to an Acura dealer some distance away and they replaced a PCB and sent it back with 30 miles on the odometer, instead of the correct (?) 123,000 +. I told them I thought federal law prohibits changing odometer readings. They shrugged and gave me the invoice from the Acura dealer saying the odometer was accidentally reset. The Honda dealer did some other work on the car and I drove out yesterday after paying nearly $3,000. (They didn't charge me for the sender or fuel gauge they said they replaced, but the Acura dealer charged about $615 for the replacement of the PCB. Also, I had told them that I wanted the broken parts they had replaced, but they forgot to keep them. (A starter, master brake cylinder, and a few other things.) Do I have any recourse? Mainly, is there any way to get the odometer reset to what it was before I brought the car in to these master mechanics?

In Califormia, the mechanic shop has to produce the replaced parts and owner has the right to take them or request for them to be recycled or thrown out. It's the law. Also, most states will require a written explanation as to why the odometer reading is not accurate. You need to get documentation to prove that you have not tampered w the odometer which again is illegal.
Whatever your dealer does has to be clearly documented so when you resell the car there would be easy to trust the miles shown on the odometer and those miles make sense on a CarFax report.
