Headlights keep going out. I've had both low beam headlights replaced twice in less than 3 months. High beams, signal, parking lights all work as they should. I took it to a shop and they said the hid headlight ballast needed replaced. No power going to low beams. Had it replaced and lights worked fine for about 2 months. Now i'm having the same problem again. I just bought the van in july. I've searched the problem and this seems to be a recurring issue with this model.

: THIS IS MY FOURTH ACURA VEHICLE. (98 INTEGRA/2010 RDX/2010 TSX) AND NOW A CPO 2015 RDX. THE VEHICLE IN THE DAYLIGHT, IS EXCELLENT. HOWEVER, THE AMOUNT OF LIGHT THAT THE HEAD LIGHTS ILLUMINATES IS EXTREMELY POOR, ALMOST DANGEROUS. THE DEALER IS VERY GOOD AND THEY HAVE STATED THEY KNOW ITS AN ISSUE, AS THE FOIL IS NOT REFLECTIVE ENOUGH. THE LENS' ARE CRYSTAL CLEAR, SO THAT IS NOT THE ISSUE. I AM CONCERNED FOR MY DAUGHTER, WHO IS A NEW DRIVER, AND TRIED TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE AT NIGHT AND CAME BACK TERRIFIED THAT SHE WAS UNABLE TO SEE WELL AT VS. OUR 2017 OUTBACK. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS AS IT CLEARLY A SAFETY ISSUE.

A ford truck tailgate recall has satisfied federal safety regulators who opened an investigation in october 2018 following complaints about electric tailgates that suddenly opened. The investigation opened by the national highway traffic safety administration (nhtsa) included electric tailgate problems in 2017-2019 ford f-250, f-350 and f-450 super duty trucks. " this recall has not fixed this issue and the tailgate continues to open and is a safety issue. We have attempted to work with ford motor company legal division for compensation and a solution to this but they will not cooperate. Until nhtsa recognize the recall is a failure, owners will continue to be a safety problem on our highways. When did this happen? Multiple times! It has been to 5 dealerships trying to resolve this recall! The date listed below is the date we purchased our truck.

Headlights are so dim until high beams have to be use in order to see. Low beam appears like you don't have any lights on or maybe park lights. Unsafe because other vehicles can't see you with low beam on and you can't see. Driver seat motor went out making it complicated to reach the excelerator and brake. On the lumbar part works. All of this is while driving the vehicle.

TONIGHT, 11/16/2020, MY Escape STARTED TO IDLE ROUGHLY. THE TACHOMETER WOULD GO UP AND DOWN BY AT LEAST 500 RPM WITHOUT ANY INPUT FROM ME. THE LIGHTS WOULD FLICKER. THE DASHCAM I HAVE MOUNTED TURNED OFF. I TRIED MAKING IT HOME AND IT JUST DIED. LOST ALL LIGHTS. I SHIFTED TO NEUTRAL AND COASTED TO THE LEFT TURN LANE. WHILE DOING THIS, THE AUTO START SYSTEM TRIED TO RESTART THE CAR, EVEN THOUGH IT HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY DISABLED. I TRIED TO START THE CAR MANUALLY, ABOUT FIVE OR SIX TIMES. IT FINALLY STARTED AND I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT HOME. I TURNED OFF THE HVAC AUTO FEATURE, MY DASHCAM AND RADIO IN CASE IT WAS A VOLTAGE ISSUE. JUST ONE MORE ISSUE WITH THIS VEHICLE. THE ELECTRONIC PACKAGE IS FINICKY AND HORRIBLE. IT HAS A MIND OF IT'S OWN. I HAVE ALSO HAD THE DEALER DO THE SERVICE BULLETIN ON THE ASS SYSTEM. IT STILL ACTS UP OCCASIONALLY LEAVING ME DEAD IN THE WATER UNTIL I CAN SHIFT TO PARK AND MANUALLY RESTART IT.
