2014 Acura MDX: Blind-Spot Information System
August 1, 2014
Sharing test cars has it challenges. Occasionally another staffer will turn on or off a feature or system and leave you scratching your head.
Such was the case with the blind-spot system in our long-term 2014 Acura MDX. I immediately noticed the static illuminated light in the MDX's gauge cluster, but wasn't sure if that meant the system was broken or turned off.
Rumor was that Dan Edmunds had turned it off, but just to make sure I went looking for the "On" switch. A few levels beneath the "Settings" button, I found the option to turn the blind-spot system back on, with a choice of flashing lights only, or the lights with an audible warning.
I went for the full alert package. We'll see how long it takes for another driver to knock it back down to silent.
