One or more heater & AC (HVAC) temperature and/or air delivery mode door actuator may fail, resulting in improper temperature or air delivery. If this occurs, fault code(s) should be stored in the HVAC control module which should assist in diagnoses.

The heated washer module under the hood could overheat due to excessive current draw. Under certain conditions, this could result in an under hood fire. This previous recall attempt in 2008 to repair this concern did not have the expected success. Dealers will now permanently disable and remove the heated washer module to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 20, 2010.
The retaining clips on the non-functional hood louver could brake. The louver could become loose and/or separate from the vehicle. If this were to happen while the vehicle is in motion, personal injury or property damage could result. Dealers will apply adhesive to the underside of the hood louver to secure it. The recall is scheduled to begin on April 12, 2010. The General Motors recall number is 10088.
The front fuel tank support strap may fracture. It it does, the fuel tank would only supported by the rear support strap and the stone shield. Continued driving would eventually fracture the rear support strap and shield fasteners. The fuel tank separating from the vehicle could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated fuel tank support strap. The recall began April 10, 2009. The General Motors recall number is 09048.

Purchased in Jan.2010 to be used as everyday driver and 25' boat hauler. Have not regretted trading in a perfectly good 2007 Acura MDX for it. I have added the nominal performance upgrades (exhaust, intake, chip) which certainly boosted power but no increase over stock mpg. 13mpg at best on highway. The 2008 + up model is the way to go for this brand - many improvements over 2007 and earlie...
