2014 Acura RDX Owner Comments

problem #1

According to dealer and Acura factory representative, Rdx has floating brake pads inside caliper clips. The brake pads make a very loud metal on metal sound against caliper clips over bumps, pot holes and lane dividers. Acura claims this is a characteristic of the car. Physics tells me that metal on metal will eventually wear causing brake pad failure. Dealer is concerned and feels explanation from Acura is unsatisfactory. Acura representative will write a report to manufacturer. All 2014 Rdx models have same problem. Dealer can not say that there is not a safety problem. Dealer says, "I don't think there is a safety problem". there needs to be an immediate investigation into this issue, because it affects hundreds of Rdx owners. The manufacturer to this point has had a very cavalier attitude that the metal on metal situation just comes with the car. The dealer confirms, "the noise issue is substantial". the dealer has bent over backwards to isolate the issue, but has not received any back-up or help from the Acura. Dealer has used rubberized paint and new brake pads to quiet noise, but has told me that it is not a fix. It is done for diagnoses purposes. At this time there is an opportunity by the federal government to prevent injury or death before it happens down the road as the car ages and metal wears. I strongly feel that federal government should intervene immediately to check this situation out for all 2014 Rdx owners. Thank you
