Issue(s): An occasional squeal when brakes are applied on cold mornings. But it goes away in two stops or so. Everything else—from reading mp3 titles aloud to the handle unlock and dimple locks—works perfectly for us. Bluetooth synced with both our phones, OnStar works, and NavTraffic is always available when we dial in the right legend on the display. Only the Acura server phone tie-in remains unavailable, but I understand that is being fixed at Acura's end this month.
BTW, SteveH, (just in case this may help) I've gotten the same message about the front seat airbag, but only when I've pressed my hand on the passenger seat reaching over, or placed a child or my two dogs on the seat. The RL senses the light pressure or low weight and turns the passenger airbags off. The next time I start the car however, the bags are activated again (no message repeat and the "passenger airbag off" light in the center does not stay on). Does your light stay on the next time you start up? And do you get the same AcuraLink message displayed again upon restart? If not, then the passenger airbags are back on again.
Hope everyone has a terrific New Year and safe motoring.
