problem #2

Vehicle was locally parked. The interior rear view mirror on my 2000 Acura Rl has leaked corrosive material from inside the mirror itself. Note: It is original equipment which has an auto dimmer feature. Currently it is difficult to see out of and the liquid is corrosive according to the dealership. Most notable: This mirror-issue seems to be widespread throughout the Acura community (even on newer models) which leads me to believe the mirrors are defective. I contacted the manufacturer and they will not replace the mirror.

Vehicle had multiple electrical problems. The problems may have cause one crash. Bf the consumer hit a vehicle which was stopped in a turning lane at 35 mph. When the vehicle crashed the air bags did not deploy. Throttle body was bent. Faulty window regulator caused the window to not close.
