The contact owns a 2018 Acura Tlx. While driving at an unknown speed, on three occasions, the steering wheel seized while making either a left or right turn. The brake pedal was applied, but felt stiff and failed to respond. The accelerator pedal was applied, but the vehicle failed to move. In addition, the electrical system, emission, transmission, stability control, all wheel assist, blind spot, cruise control, and lane assist indicators illuminated. The vehicle was towed to Acura of memphis (2611 ridgeway rd, memphis, tn 38119) where it was diagnosed that the vehicle overheated and the automatic start malfunctioned. The vehicle was repaired, but the failures recurred. The manufacturer was not notified and opened case number: 08586429. No further assistance was provided. The failure mileage was 31,081.
