Safety issue. Acura dealer has been unable to resolve supplemental restraint system (SRS) problem after three attempts during the past 90 days. The vehicle is now being serviced by the Acura servicing dealer for the fourth time for the identical problem. The SRS problem light keeps turning while driving.

  • miles
Recurring problem with SRS light coming on and rendering vehicle unsafe to operate per dealer, owner's manual, and factory rep. Car is 90 days old and has been out of service for 40 days. Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer can repair after 4 attempts. There is evidence that this is a problem with this model as it is reported on internet message boards (e.g. clubrsx.com), and the dealers refer to other occurrences.
