Acura has issued a recall for the new RLX because of some problems with the headlights which might increase the possibility of a crash, especially at night.
The newest recall announced by Acura is covering the 2014 – 2015 RLX. According to the car manufacturer, there is a problem with the aluminum film glued to the headlamp’s inner reflector which, in time, may detach from the light, reducing its output. If this happens, the possibility of a crash will increase, especially at night. Ten warranty claims and 16 field reports have been received by Honda, related to this issue, since the 5th of December.
The affected Acura RLX vehicles have been produced between the 22nd of November, 2012 and the 30th of January, 2014, the 4th of June, 2014 an the 18th of November 2014 and the 5th of November, 2013, an until the 25th of July, 2014, on the RLX Hybrid. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by the car manufacturer on or around the 30th of January, 2015. The company’s dealers will replace both headlights at no charge.
