  • Date complaint filed: 11:22 Feb-19, 2021

While using the cruise control, vehicle will automatically slam on the brakes without reason. This typically occurs on highway where vehicle will automatically brake reducing speed dramatically. Vehicle will go from 70mph to 55 mph in a few seconds causing the vehicles behind to have to brake fast to avoid collision. Acura has worked on vehicle 4 times and claims they cannot fix the system. I was told to hold my foot over the accelerator to increase speed when this happens. They also told me that they are very aware of this problem but offered no correction for this unsafe condition. It has happened at least 100 times. Vehicle is 4 years old with 7,000 miles.

  • Date complaint filed: 15:33 Feb-17, 2021

THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHT ARE EXTREMELY DIM OFFERING NO NIGHT TIME VISIBILITY WITHOUT USING THE HIGH BEAM HEADLIGHTS. THE DEALER HAS REPLACED THE BULBS AND ADJUSTED THE LIGHTING AND THERE IS NO IMPROVEMENT. THE CAR HAS 80,000 MILES AND UPON FURTHER RESEARCH THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH THESE 2015 RDX VEHICLES. THE CAR IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. MY ACURA SERVICE DEPARTMENT ACTUALLY TOLD ME THAT THESE CARS ARE KNOWN FOR HAVING POOR VISIBILITY. THE ISSUE IS ONLY WHEN USING THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD AND NEEDS TO E REPAIRED BY ACURA.
