2005 Acura RL 4dr Sedan

300-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed shiftable automatic AWD

31000 mi   Navigation screen cannot read the dvd and goes blank 
71000 US $900 The A/C clutch is slipping and it will cost $900 at the dealer to fix this issue. At this time, I have not had it repaired. 
76700   brought car to independent Acura shop to fix a/c clutch, but Acura dealer misdiagnosed. It ended up as a problem with the control module. HID light would flicker and it was found that the ignitor was not working 
63840 C $1000 clutch controlling air conditioning needed replaced 
160000 US $450 Dead AC Stator 
89000 US $100 Tire Pressure Monitoring System warning light on dash "Error". Faulty system sensor diagnosed, part on order. Will return to Dealer for completion of work. 
114000   Airbag light on 
63000   intermittent issue where compressor wouldn't engage. Worked great when it did engage which was 85% of the time. Relay replaced, but same problem remains. Covered in 2007 TSB with coil the likely issue. Going back soon to replace coil. 
66000 US $400 electrical short in the passenger door handle 
81000 US $350 Radio mulfunction Light bulb. 
83000   Driver side Rear window inoperable.  Replaced window motor and linkage. Told by dealer that linkage failed and replacing it required buying the motor and linkage in same kit. 
101000   AFS light warning. Dealer said the Advanced Front Light System that controls the HID lights ability to turn into a corner requires a replacement of a $375 sensor in the rear (I think) of the car. It tells the system when the car is level. 
65000 US $25 Fuse was blown because of faulty power window motor. This resulted in the remote entry fob to not work.
