The engine is the heart of the vehicle. A car can’t drive without a properly working engine. Acura vehicle owners have commonly reported excessive engine oil consumption.
Common symptoms of engine failures include:
- Engine Control Module (ECM) warning lights on the dash
- Check engine lights
- Excessive oil consumption
- No start, excessive cranking
- Lack of acceleration
- Loss of power
- Stalling (most often when attempting to shift gear)
The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.
Common symptoms of transmission failures include:
- Whining and clunking
- Burning smell
- Lack of response, hesitation
- Lunging, or jerking
- Noisy in neutral
- Leaking fluid
- Premature clutch replacements
Brake Fade or Failure
The brake system is one of the most important systems in a vehicle and is vital in preventing crashes. Most vehicles use either disk brakes, drum brakes, or hydraulic brakes. Brake failure is usually caused by faded brake pads or a malfunctioning brake booster. Acuras are specifically known for having premature brake wear.
Common symptoms of brake fade or failure include:
- Brake light on
- Wobbling or scraping when braking
- Squealing when braking
- Leaking fluid
- Soft brake pedal
- Burning smell when braking
- Increased stopping distance
The car’s electrical system is composed of the battery, starter, and alternator and is responsible for things like starting the car, powering the dashboard, and other electricity dependent systems such as power locks, power windows, sound systems, and lighting, among others. Electrical failure can be caused by a loose electrical connection, a blown fuse, or battery failure.
Common symptoms of electrical failure include:
- Battery problems
- Engine won’t crank
- Headlights aren’t working properly
- Burning plastic smell
- Fuses keep blowing out
Steering System Defects
Steering system defects cause serious safety problems, since a vehicle’s steering system is responsible for a driver’s ability to direct the vehicle and avoid collision.
Common symptoms of steering and suspension defects include:
- Difficulty turning the wheel
- Premature tire wearing
- Vehicle does not drive straight
- Loose steering
- Unresponsive steering
- Grinding, rattling, screeching, or other noise while turning the wheel
- Steering wheel slipping
- Excessive vibration

Notable Acura Recalls
Reduced Fuel Pump Performance May Cause Stall (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 19V060000)
- In January 2019, Acura recalled more than 437,000 of its vehicles equipped with defective fuel pumps.
- According to Acura, Particulates in fuel may adhere to the internal components of the fuel pump reducing its flow and performance. Reduced fuel pump performance can result in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 16V640000)
- In September 2016, Acura recalled more than 8,000 vehicles with defective transmission wiring.
- According to Acura, the affected vehicles are equipped with wiring harnesses within the transmission that have insufficient crimps. As a result, the transmission may malfunction and unexpectedly shift to neutral, increasing the risk of a crash.
Coating on Rear Caliper Brake Caliper Pistons (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 18V777000)
- In November 2018, Acura recalled more than 64,000 vehicles for a lack of coating on the rear caliper brake pistons.

At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Acura.
Acura is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Honda. Acura was the first Japanese luxury brand and remains popular in U.S. markets today, selling over 157,000 units in 2019. Honda/Acura became the second-largest Japanese automobile manufacturer in 2001, and remains so today behind Toyota. Honda/Acura was recognized as the eighth largest automobile manufacturer in the world in 2015. It is reported that Honda makes $4,537.67 every second, for a yearly total of over $143,000,000,000.
Unfortunately for consumers, Acura vehicles are not as reliable as some may think. In recent years, Consumer Reports show Acura has received disappointing satisfaction ratings among buyers. Its flagship vehicles have constant software and electrical problems, transmission clunks and hesitations, and cheap suspension components that make for an uncomfortable ride and frequent visits to repair facilities.
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Acura often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Acura’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
