Acura RDX ProblemsEngine Leaking Oil
The 2007-2012 Acura RDX engine oil pressure sensor is known to leak engine oil from normal operation.
More information about the oil pressure sensor here.
To correct the leak, the sensor must be inspected, properly sealed and installed, or replaced with new.
Acura has issued a recall on a small number of these vehicles because the tow hitch was not welded properly and could break off. (Campaign Number: 06E096000)
Acura RDX QuestionsRecently, My RDX' 13 is asking for tire pressure verification. They have N2. Why (1 answer)
Hi all, I'm a RDX '13 owner.
since the vehicle stars moving, the tire pressure increases about 1 or 2 PSIs; 3 out of 4 tires are showing the problem. But then, after some rest period, the tire pressure decreases again. Is that technically possible? What should be wrong?... I'm afraid...
I'd prefer the option of using a less expensive repair shop, although I'd like to be sure they're well qualified
Acura RDX RecallsDriver'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.
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.
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.
