Mine and all 2014 models have a front end metal on metal clang going over bumps.
Diagnosed by two dealers as brake pad metal backing hitting caliper clips.
Acura will not fix, dealer has made a temporary fix. Dealers are frustrated with Acura over issue. Dealer says he does not know if this is a safety issue.
Filed complaint with Federal safety commission. Metal on metal will eventually break down.
Acura will have to fix the problem if more owners complain to dealers. This is a potential dangerous brake issue.
The clang is not something that a so called "high end" SUV should have. Acura calls it, "a Characteristic" of the model. If this is so then lower the price to a low end SUV.
Handles well in snow and ice.
Roomy interior. Gas Mileage is very good.
Replace current use of floating brake pads. Steering column cover between steering wheel and dashboard is mounted on all RDX models in a manner that is not level.
Looks very cheap.
