Left rear brake caliper leaking slightly. Replaced myself.
Master cylinder spongy during summer. Replaced by dealer.
Side cover gaskets just started to seep.
Power antenna was not hooked up. Repaired myself.
Screw for ignition rotor fell out and car died by the side of the road. Repaired myself (5 minute job).
Daytime running lights sporadically flicker on and off. I cut the wire for the headlights at the module (behind rear seat) and installed a set of fog lights to come on instead (connected a relay to the left marker light). Now the headlights only come on with the switch, but all other lights are on (including fog lights) when car is running.
This car is LOADED. Heated cloth seats (don't like leather), sunroof, 4 doors (for the baby that is on it's way), STANDARD transmission (HATE automatics), engine is pretty easy to work on (Acura actually engineered this car to be easier to work on), anti-lock brakes, power windows/door locks, security system. EVERYTHING works on this 13 year old car!!
I am very picky about how my car drives and looks. In the past year that I have owned the car, it has only given me trouble the 1 time. When the screw fell out of the rotor. I suggest only using Acura original parts on the distributor as they include the rubber gasket for the distributor cap and putting blue loctite on the ignition rotor screw.
This car has been excellent and handles great with the 17" rims and 35 series performance summer tires I installed (P245-35 R17 Grand Spirit).
Unfortunately, there aren't as many performance parts right now for my car as I would like, but am still looking.
The original paint still looks great under the 12 coats of wax that I have added and with the chrome rims and tinted windows, it is quite the head turner. I never expected to like a 4 door luxury car like I like this car. The 10" sub that I added sounds great too!
If anyone knows of where to find performance parts for this car I would greatly appreciate it!!
Way to go Acura!!
