problem #1

Feb 092002

RSX 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,800 miles
The brake calipers on my 2002 Acura Rsx (base model) intermittently "seize" and cause the vehicle and steering column to vibrate while the car is in motion, making it difficult to control and apparently causing rotor damage. Since brake problems are a safety issue, the dealership's service department replaced both the calipers and rotors free of charge under the warranty. I was told by the service technician that the manufacturer is aware of the problem but does not know what is causing it. Since the equipment was replaced, the same problem has recurred.
