problem #2

I bought an Acura 2009 Tsx (tech pkg) in August 2008. Within the first month I had the brakes squealing, terrible noise. Took it to the dealer, who said it is normal with front brakes. I have suffered with the problem everyday for 1.5 years. When I went back to the dealer few days ago, they said there is excessive wear on the front pads. The car has 14,000 miles as of March 2010. They replaced the brakes per the new service bulletin related to squeaking brakes. Windshield molding came loose for no apparent reason, dealer fixed it as warranty service. There is excessive glare on the navigation system, makes it dangerous while driving. Not sure if there is a fix for this.

Noise coming from 2009 Acura tax rearend driverside. Piping noise can be heard when stopping and accelerating. There is a frame flaw. I am told Acura has a design flaw. They have to fuse two metal pieces to get the noise to quit and the dealer had to order a special tool from torance ca. What else is wrong with this horrible Honda product. Oh yeah and the engine pings a lot. What are we to do?
