47000 mi US $183 I found oil stain on drive shaft. Dealer could not find source of leak so he cleaned up the area and requested that I return in a few weeks to see if stain returns and then they can find the source. I noticed a vibration under braking. Dealer found front rotors warped and resurfaced them. 
47000   The oil stain on the axle was getting worse even after it was cleaned as described previously. Dealer replaced right front drive shaft oil seal under warranty 
79700   Brakes began to shudder badly when driving down mountain pass. Shudder went away after brakes had a chance to cool. Happened several times. Dealer resurfaced rotors. I have not driven car in area to verified fix yet. It may not be fixed.

Mar 2008 - Oct 2010
7800 mi   Front Rotor and Pads were going pretty early on this car, by 35,000 miles. I usually get much more from that on a car because I drive smoothly and downshift alot. I count that as a problem on this model Not fixed yet. Bluetooth doesn't connect to phones reliably. All else perfect 
33000   Front windows sticky and noisy to operate

58000 mi   Bad bearing in rear left wheel, covered under powertrain warranty. 
Acura TSX in Washington, United States
Jul 2010 - Sep 2014
35000 mi   My driver-side front window motor occasionally fails to take the window all the way up, but the dealership could not replicate the problem and was not interested in replacing the motor. 
40000   I believe the issue was/is a stuck brake caliper, but of course, the dealer "could not replicate" the problem. Rear brake caliper appeared to be seized up as evidenced by the one disc showing rust and no sign of brake-pad contact. Grinding sound associated with problem. Dealer said "Could not replicate," and sound was gone when I picked the car up. 
58000 US $200 Rear brake pads replaced and rotors re-surfaced.

54000   car can't sit for five days without draining battery completely. Dealer told me this was true with all cars built after 1997 
Acura TSX in California, United States
Feb 2010 - Sep 2014
33000 mi   Front rotors were warped which is normally a wear item, but because of the mileage and good condition of brake pads this was replaced under warranty (rotors resurfaced and new pads). 
53000   Erratic cooling; filter was changed Replace rear pads Rattle inside console area every time I take off from a stop. It sounds like something is rolling inside, but it's not in any compartment. It's down inside the car somewhere. 
59000   Strange "whoop" sound (like gas escaping)intermittently when air conditioner was running. Dealer said common problem, air trapped in system, and they evacuated and refilled the system. System was cooling very well before & after repair. 
64000   This is a wear item, but I had a dispute with Acura about this, and they ended up paying for the battery although the car is now out of warranty. The previous battery (Acura branded) lasted exactly 2 years, which I thought was substandard. 
66000   Control arm bushing was cracked and so there were creaking sounds every time car moved from a stop or turned. Both bushings were replaced.
