problem #2

Dec 072009


  • 92,000 miles
Several broken motor mounts in 2001 Acura 3.2cl. This likely will lead to defects in transmission and or engine which can cause an accident. This information on broken motor mounts on my vehicle and the likely affects came directly from my Acura dealer. It is likely these motor mounts were broken several thousand miles ago. In 2008 the car mileage was only 65,000 and when I purchased the car on Dec. 7,2009 it has 92,000. I had the vehicle inspected at time of purchase and the broken motor mounts were found by the Acura dealership. I am 62 years old and have never experienced broken motor mounts in any of 20 cars I have owned until now. There should be a recall on these motor mounts, or a credit provided by the manufacture to owners that need to replace broken motor mounts. This truly is a safety issue. The only recall on this vehicle has been for the automatic transmission and quite possibly these broken motor mounts have been the cause or a possible cause. Owners need to be informed about this safety issue as soon as possible by inspections being performed on motor mounts for 2001 Acura 3.2cl. I would appreciate any help on this issue.

On January 9, 2008, the contact went to trade in the vehicle and was informed that it was a salvaged vehicle. He was referred to NHTSA by his credit union.
