 Vehicle has developed a 16 long crack on the passenger side air bag to the right on the vertical air bag seam. when driven the crack appears to have grown, therefore we have stopped driving it completely until this safety issue is fixed. we fear that the passenger side air bag could be negatively effected by this crack either premature deployment or not properly deploying in the event of an accident. the car has always been meticulously taken care of and garage kept since we drove it off the dealers lot brand new. *tr

 Dash that covers front passenger air bag is cracking and i am concerned that it may lead to premature deployment of the air bag, or in the event of needed air bag deployment cause physical hard to the passenger.

 There are some cracks in the dash around the passenger's airbag. one of them (and the larger one) is just over the crease/seam of the airbag lid. i'm afraid that this may harm (eventually) the proper functionality of the airbag in an event of a collision. the car is only 5 years old and apparently it is a defect of the 2004 thru 2006 models.

 The side airbag turned on and when taken to the dealership they said that no codes were found. apparently, the computer has a malfunction. i was told that since no code were found in the computer, then the manufacturer will not cover it under warranty. currently i am dealing with the situation, because this is unacceptable to have a warning light on and not do anything to correct it. *jb

 Dashboard is cracking on passenger side where the airbag releases. feel this may be a safety issue. in a matter of one week went from no visible crack to approximately four inches long and then to twelve inches long. acura will not replace as vehicle is out of warranty.

 Dt*: the contact stated while driving 35 mph on a rural road after a right turn, the front wheel hit a pot hole, the driver side air bag deployed and the seat belt became stocked. the vehicle remained inoperable due to a vehicle safety feature. no warning light were illuminated prior the incident. a police report was taken. the vehicle was inspected by the dealership who determined the pot hole impact deployed the side air bag and also stocked the seat belt buckle. the whole incident was determined as an accident by the dealership as well by the manufacturer representative in puerto rico. the consumer protection agency and the insurance company also determined the incident as an accident. the contact expressed concern because the air bag deployment was not a consequence of body impact.*ak
