2014 Acura MDX: Recall Resolved

January 30, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

Edmunds reported back in December that American Honda was recalling 19,197 of the all-wheel-drive version of the 2014 Acura MDX.

The recall was to tighten the propeller shaft bolts. The NHTSA campaign describes the problem, "The bolts that attach the drive shaft to the automatic transmission transfer assembly may not have been properly tightened. As a result, the bolts could loosen possibly allowing the shaft to detach."

Our long-term MDX was part of the recall. I dropped it off at Santa Monica Acura without an appointment. I arrived around 11AM, was taken care of immediately, grabbed a complimentary bottle of water, and hopped the courtesy shuttled to our office.

The polite and cheerful service manager George called me at 1:45 to say the car was ready. When I arrived our MDX was washed and ready to go.

No charge, obviously. No days out of service.
