Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which over time could cause the inflator to rupture. If this happens, it would spray metal fragments upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Shifter May Move Without Depressing Brake Pedal

The shift interlock system is designed to prevent the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because during sub-freezing temperatures, the interlock mechanism may be slow to operate. The could allow the shifter to be moved from the park position when it should not be allowed to do so. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated shift interlocking mechanism to correct this concern.

Incorrect Certification Labels Indicating Tire and Rim Sizes May Be Present

The inappropriate certification label may be present at the driver's door jam area. This will provide improper tire and wheel information. Dealers will remove the incorrect label and install the proper label. The Acura recall number is Q54. This recall began on August 20, 2007.

Acura RDX Reviews

Overall a great car....but, the engine management system creates a very annoying vibration when the car reaches "cruising speed" whether it's 25 or 30 or 70 mph. If they don't fix it my next buy will be Lexus.
Overall the car is very reliable but the turbo charged engine delivers uneven power and gets terrible gas mileage (19 miles to the gallon overall). The suspension is tight which makes for an unsettling riding. The seats are also a bit hard. The road noise is pronounced especially on highways. Additionally, the car is a bit small for a suv.
