I've owned my 2015 MDX since new and it currently has 100,000KMs (60k miles) on the clock. I've had issues with a recurring clunck in the front end for several years. Acura couldn't find an problem. The issue starting becoming morre sever about a month ago. Acura delaer suggested replacing a miriad of front end parts including a new steering rack. I took the car to my trusted local mechanic and he finally gave me a definitive answer. The steering rack is faulty and needs replacement. He has some ideas on a fix that could save some money but is not hopeful. Acura CS has run away from dealing with me (off warranty). I understand when I'm off warranty , that's it, you're on your own. In my opinion the exception to this is faulty parts which are key to operating a vehicle safely. Has anyone else experienced pre-mature steering rack failure and if so what was your course of action?

I’d push CS on the fact that you have complained on this for years,as you say. They should cover at least part of it.

Sometimes CS will do a parts/labor split with you. but only if the problem is confirmed and repaired at a dealership. They may want to shy away from getting involved because previous accident damage might be the cause.
