2014 MDX Defect Noticed
By tiffany18 on


2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Hello Everyone, Tiffany Here in Canada.
I purchased a new 2014 MDX two weeks ago.
There is a noticeable defect with the rubbber weather strip around the windows of the rear passenger doors. There is a point on the 3 o'clock position of the window seal that bends roughly 30 degrees.
At that point, the seal is popping out.
Looks ugly and water can get inside.

I examined all three 2014 MDXs on the dealership lot, they all had this same issue. Dealership doesn't know how to fix it, and Honda Canada is asking the design engineer in U.S.

THe 2013 & 2012 MDX have the same 30 degree angle, but no such problem.

I'm asking all affected owners to ask HONDA to fix this.

Worst Features

There were a few blemishes with the 2014 MDX on delivery, and dealership was able to repair all, except for this problem with the weather strip noted above. This MDX is produced out of the plant in Alabama, and the fit and finish is unbecoming of an ACURA. Frankly, the weather strip issue is something so basic that you don't even find in $25,000 vehicles produced in Mexico. I don't know what happened to the quality control at Acura, but clearly it needs improvement.
