Acura RL in North Carolina, United States
Jun 2011 - Jun 2012
71000 mi 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. Passenger seat will no longer recline. Worst case scenario, this issue alone could cost as much as $700 to repair. 
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 mi C $1000 clutch controlling air conditioning needed replaced

63000 mi   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 mi US $400 electrical short in the passenger door handle 
Acura RL in New York, United States
Jan 2010 - Jun 2011
55000 mi US $100 Interior door panel came off in my hand! Never had a car with that problem before. Dealer said they've seen other RL's with the same problem.  
67000   Car makes scary noise during acceleration. For 30,000 miles, the dealer still cannot replicate the problem. They did this when we had our 2003 MDX for 44,000 miles. Finally I gave up and sold the MDX. After the RL no more damn Acuras for us. 
68000   Car still has tranny or engine problem described earlier. Dealer still says cannot replicate problem. Frustrating. It happens every day, but not to them? And it's very obvious. We have a terrible dealer. 
Acura RL in New York, United States
Feb 2010 - Apr 2011
77300 mi   Passenger door handle not locking doors.  
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. 
Acura RL in California, United States
Jan 2010 - Feb 2010
64000 mi US $25 Fuse was blown because of faulty power window motor. This resulted in the remote entry fob to not work.
