Acura has recently announced a recall for the 2014 MDX because of a problem with the driveshaft, which can detach.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 19,197 units of the 2014 Acura MDX will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the driveshaft fixed. The NHTSA says that the bolts that attach the driveshaft to the automatic gearbox on the SUV are not properly tightened and they could loosen, allowing the shaft to detach.
If this will happen during driving, it could cause a large noise and significant damage to the vehicle, also increasing the risk of a crash and injury. Owners of the affected 2014 Acura MDX vehicles will be notified by the carmaker on this recall and the company’s dealers will be inspecting and tightening the driveshaft attaching bolts, free of charge. The affected SUVs have been produced between the 6th of May, 2013, and the 14th of October, 2014, and they are all coming with AWD.
