When the car? S headlight switch is set to? Auto? , the head and taillights will turn on and off at random, regardless of lighting conditions. The lights randomly turn on while the car is off and stationary and has resulted in a drained battery on three occasions. . The lights turn on and then back off while in motion during daytime driving (as indicated by the dashboard indicator). When on and while in motion at night, the lights turn off, resulting in zero visibility while driving.

No headlights at night. Have to use the high beams and they are dim. Took it back to cadillac and they were aware of the situation and that there is no recall!????!!! More than willing to repair the vehicle for $2000. 00. Never would have expected this out of cadillac. Or nhtsa for that matter. How do you safely drive a vehicle at night with no headlights? Why is there no official recall on this problem?

Water gets in the back track light which is a known issue with the dodge track lights. My track light completely shorted out including my license plate lights. Dodge knows of this design flaw and should have to cover the cost of the replacement which is $1000 plus labor. Totally ridiculous and a obvious safety hazard

STARTING AROUND 100,000 MILES I NOTICED THE LOW BEAMS WERE TOO DIM. I REPLACED THE BULBS TWICE WHICH HAD NO EFFECT. I DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES SO I TRIED TO LIMIT MY DRIVING TO DAYTIME, OTHERWISE I HAD TO USE MY HIGH BEAMS TO SEE SAFELY. NOW MY VEHICLE HAS 135,000 MILES AND THE LIGHTS GOT WORSE TO THE POINT THAT IT WAS A SIGNIFICANT DANGER TO DRIVE AT NIGHT AND I NARROWLY AVOIDED AN ACCIDENT. I SEARCHED ONLINE TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE WAS HAVING THIS ISSUE AND THE INTERNET IS FULL OF ACURA OWNERS WITH COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS VERY THING. ACURA KNOWS ABOUT THIS AND ACTUALLY RECALLED THE 2014 RDX BECAUSE OF IT, BUT NOT THE 2015. I APPEALED TO ACURA TO ASK THEM TO PAY FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY AND THEY SAID NO, CITING 1) TOO MANY MILES ON THE CAR (HEADLIGHTS ARE NOT A PART THAT SHOULD BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO WEAR AND TEAR .....I HAD A TOYOTA WITH 300,000 MILES THAT NEVER NEEDED A HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY REPLACED. THIS ANSWER HOLDS NO MERIT 2) I DIDN'T HAVE MY CAR SERVICED BY ACURA DEALERSHIP. I HAVE MAINTAINED MY VEHICLE TO PERFECTION THROUGH MY OWN MECHANIC AND WOULD NEVER PAY THE RIDICULOUS EXORBITANT FEES THE DEALERS CHARGE. JUST BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE MY CAR SERVICED WITH THE DEALER DOESN'T MEAN I DIDN'T TAKE CARE OF MY CAR. 3) THEY DON'T RECOGNIZE THIS AS A SAFETY CONCERN. I'M INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTED AT ACURAS RESPONSE TO THIS. THIS IS MY FIRST ACURA AND WILL CERTAINLY BE MY LAST. THEY HAVE A KNOWN SAFETY ISSUE AND THEY TURN A BLIND EYE TO IT. WOULD THEY ONLY TAKE ACTION WHEN SOMEONE IS KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT? ACURA NEEDS TO BE RESPONSIBLE AND RECALL THIS MAKE AND MODEL. AND THEN THEY NEED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES BECAUSE OTHER CAR MANUFACTURERS SEEM TO HAVE FIGURED IT OUT. MAYBE THEY SHOULD CONSULT WITH TOYOTA

I purchased this vehicle 2 weeks ago never been happier. My complaint is about my headlights they have serious condensation in both and there is about an inch or 2 of water inside the headlights. This issue is causing bad visibility with low lighting. I have tried everything to keep the water out and provide headlights with proper air so this doesn't happen. How come chevrolet didn't recall these headlights due to poor design and improper ventilation. What can i do besides spend $200. 00 on 2 new ones?

The headlights are so dim night driving is impossible. New bulbs and lens cleaning had no effect. There are hundreds if not thousands of complaints online about the projector headlamps growing dangerously dim on acura's in this model year range. The car is not safe to drive at night and poses an imminent threat to public safety.

The headlights keep burning out. I've had the car for a little over a year now and have had to replace the headlights 3 times. I was driving one night a couple months ago and both low beam headlights went out. That was very dangerous. That was my second set of headlights now i'm on my 3rd set and the drivers side went out. I paid extra for the best set of headlights autozone had to offer at the time as i was in desperate need so i could drive home and it still lasted the same amount of time, purchased on 1/22/2021. Also, they're always dim. For the most expensive set of lights i expected more. I did a little research and seen that this is very common for this vehicle. Why is this allowed to continue? Someone is going to get hurt. Please research this and see what could be done. Headlights are very expensive. I have two other vehicles. A 2017 dodge journey that has never needed a headlight change and a 2007 ford escape that has only needed a few headlights in its entire existence. This is not right. The date listed below is the most recent incident.

Rain water leaks into the brake lights and ruins it all. The dealership said it costs $1,400 because they have to replace everything. Everywhere i called is back ordered on the parts because this happens so frequently. The car barely has 20k miles on it.

My left turn signal went out, so i replaced both my left and right turn signals. My vehicle now registers that my right turn signal is out constantly, even though it is operating properly and my left turn signal does the same periodically. Since my purchase of this vehicle, i have had issues with the navigation not functioning properly. The radio display itself has a mind of it's own, this is how you operate most of the vehicles climate functions, back up camera, navigation and radio. When the vehicle comes on, it is supposed to turn on. However more often than not, it chooses to be off, and i have to wait for it to decide to turn on. If i do not have the a/c know turned off when it does this, both my front and rear defrosters will turn on full blast until the display chooses to operate properly. I have had this system updated with a usb drive at a dealership and nothing has changed. Overtly, i am not at all satisfied with how these electrical issues continue and there seems to be no resolve.

The passenger side led light (day time/fog light) has gone out. I searched online to see if there was a recall and ran across a lot of chevy owners with the exact same problem at the exact spot. If there isn't a recall then one should definitely been in order. Led light should not have gone out and i shouldn't be charged an arm and a leg to diagnose the problem.
