Going down a highway at 65 MPH, on a bright sunny day, the car went inexplicable and totally out of control. Veered to the right, across one lane, and slammed into a guard rail. Car was totalled. Air bag did not go off. Post inside the head rest split my head open; I was knocked unconscious; I required 24 stitches.
Acura had a limited recall out for ball joints that can cause loss of control. I was not part of the recall because the recall was limited to cars made in Aug & Sep of 1997. Other than almost killing me, the car was an excellent car and a pleasure to drive.
It may be a threat to your life; if you own a 3.0 CL, please get your ball joints inspected immediately.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
