1991 Acura NSX: SRS Warning, Next Step
April 11, 2012
Yesterday we dropped our 1991 Acura NSX off at Santa Monica Acura to diagnose the issue behind our SRS warning light. There was a $148.88 fee to open up the car and locate the problem. We said okay.
Later that afternoon our advisor called, "Mike, I hoped the light was seat belt related so that we could cover it under warranty. After digging around we found the SRS control unit needed to be replaced instead. That job will cost $1,713."
We have dealt with this advisor, Henry, for years, dating back to when he was at a another dealership. He has always been up-front with us, which is why we keep going back. I told him we'd like to get another opinion. He understood. Then I asked him what we could do about the initial diagnosis fee. He was able to knock it down to $99.95, which was better than nothing.
We're off to another garage to see if we can save some dough.
Total Cost: $99.95
Days out of service: 1
