Recall 19V424000

Front Axle Drive Shaft Separates From Half Shaft

Recall Details

The front axle drive shaft may separate from the half shaft due to excessive grease preventing a set-ring from fully locking into place. Dealers swill inspect the shafts and as necessary replace the drive shaft and half shaft free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The drive shaft of the vehicle may separate from the half shaft due to the presence of excessive grease preventing the set-ring of the half shaft from fully engaging, leaving the drive shaft insecure. This would result in a lack of motive power, and can allow the vehicle to move when it is expected to be secured with the transmission in the "park" position, both scenarios increasing risk of accident and injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Acura must be performed by an Acura dealership. Acura will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Acura dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Acura recall number is G54.
