I had my first Acura in 1990- the Legend. Loved that car and since then I had own 2MDX, TSX ( I still have) and RLX from Acura brand and several Lexus including LS, IS and ES. I initially loved the RLX hybrid as it checked all the boxes I was looking for. That was short lived. It is plaques with random software issues with brakes, battery total discharge within 72 hours to 96 hours. If I leave the car at the airport, it is guaranteed to be dead by the time I come back 3 days later. At home you need a trickle charger connected just in case and also keep portable jump starter just in case. I feel like this car is always in ICU.now I have a brake problem that has voice message to pull the car over and get it towed as brakes may fail! The dealer has no clue how to fix this after multiple attempts other than saying it is probably a software issue ( probably really!). I am trying to get Acura Customer service involved and see what happens. It is extremely frustrating that I have 60k dead weight under warranty plus extended warranty on a car I don’t feel safe. I will update in couple of weeks.
