The brakes do not stop the vehicle consistently. The story of my incident goes as follows: I was driving in dry conditions as I approached a stop light and began to apply the brakes. Once the vehicle came to a complete stop the car then began to slide into a busy intersection. The only way I was able to stop was by putting the car in park. Luckily the other drivers were able to see something was wrong and did not proceed to drive through me. This has happened to me twice! the other time I was driving under wet conditions and the car did not even come to a complete stop. It just continued to slide into the intersection. I am very concerned for my safety and life! Acura dealership refuses to admit that there is anything wrong with the vehicle after inspection and I don't know what else to do. The dealership has continued to dismiss my concerns.

Rdx AWD under icy conditions can kill torque to all 4 wheels. In my case as soon as all torque was lost the vehicle immediately started sliding down the incline. I was able to steer the vehicle in a 180 deg turn and slide forward down the hill until torque to the wheels was finally restored. There is no mention of loss of torque in any Acura literature available to me and Acura refused to provide information after the incident was reported. I consider this a serious design flaw.

RDX 6-cyl

  • 500 miles
Acura Rdx tech purchased 30 days ago, up-shifted while parking into a parking spot in a parking garage. The vehicle suddenly and violently accelerated when pushing on the brake before a complete stop and ran into the chain linked fence. The driver got a seat belt burn on the left upper chest and soft tissue injury to the neck. The front part of the vehicle got significant body damage. A couple incidences of the car violently upshifted when moving from a stop were also noted before this accident happened. The car was bought brand new a month ago. This is the exact similar incidence to the complaint # 10510220. Acurazine community forum has other incidences similar to my accident. This is a major safety concern. The vehicle was brought to the Acura dealer for investigation.
