2020 Acura RDX Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 142020

RDX SHAWD Technology

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,100 miles


Significant brake noise within weeks of brand new purchase. Called dealer. Maintenance department says that Acura is aware of the problem across the fleet and it has something to do with the anti-corrosion coatings and the pads. Not sure what the fix (if any) will be, but it is noticeable and annoying. Especially for the price of the car. Sounds like my high school beater I used to drive. The frustrating part is that it apparently was reported on the 2019 models, but Acura continued to just churn out more cars with the same problem.

Hopefully, Acura has a fix and will implement it. If not, this will be my first and only foray into Acura. Shame too, I like the car (other than the wonky infotainment).

RDX Advance Package 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles

Front brakes make noise and you can feel the abrasive rubbing.

Update from Oct 20, 2020: Front brakes make noise and you can feel the abrasive rubbing. I have had both front brake pads replaced, I only have 3000 miles on my vehicle, only to have the symptom reoccurrence next day .Dealer says no fix for this problem, Acura is aware of this since they build the new RDX in 2019, we are going to 2021 and no fix yet . Happens when applying brakes going about 40-45 mph
