2014 Acura RLX Owner Comments

problem #4

RLX 6-cyl

  • 1,500 miles


Car has numerous rattles and has had a recall for rear suspension bolts. Rattle problem has not been solved over 5 attempts. Both front strut assemblies have been replaced and still rattles. I have read there are issues with bolts coming loose and tie rods shearing from the vehicle causing the wheel(s) to come off. Have told the manufacturer on numerous occasions but they insist there is no safety issue with vehicle. I do not drive car on highways as I am afraid that all this rattling will loosen these bolts an accident just waiting to happen.

Since taking delivery of the car, it has made loud clunking and rattling noises and vibration from all four wheels, particularly noticeable while driving at slower speeds (15-45 mph). The dealer made an attempt to fix this by replacing the dampers on all four struts at the direction of Acura. This did not correct the problem. Since then, the dealer has been awaiting direction from Acura as to how to repair this defect. During an arbitration hearing, Acura informed the arbitrator and me that all 2014 Rlxs have this defect. They said redesigned parts are being tested now. As of 7/15/14 no further report has been received regarding the results of this testing, and neither Acura nor the dealer has contacted me to advise what corrective action(s) will be taken and when.

The contact owns a 2014 Acura Rlx. The contact stated that while driving 50 mph and decelerating, the vehicle veered to the left. Upon coming to a complete stop, the passenger rear tire detached from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was found that the rear control arm bolt fractured and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that would be sending out an engineer to evaluate the work done under NHTSA campaign number 13V622000 (suspension). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 5,100....updated 06/04/2014 updated 06/06/2014

RLX 6-cyl

  • 3,000 miles
I was driving down the freeway when the back-end of the car became very loose and out of control. The car was swerving back and forth violently. I was able to gain control avoiding the cars to the left of me and the ditch to the right. I was able to get the car under control and I slowed the speed way down. I pulled off the highway and into a driveway to inspect. I found the passenger rear tire tilted inwards towards the car at about a 20 degree angle and found the tie rod that connects the car to the new all wheel steering device disconnected and laying on the ground. The bolt either came out or sheered off. The car was towed to the dealer and inspected. They told me it was a defect and repaired it under warranty. Acura client care received the photos and a description from the dealer. I was informed the bolt probably vibrated loose. Updated 10/22/13 updated 10/23/2013
