Vehicles Affected: Approximately 106,000 model-year 2014-15 Acura MDX crossovers
The Problem: The air conditioning clutch drive bolt may loosen or break, which could cause the clutch drive pulley to fall under the vehicle while it is in motion, presenting a potential hazard to other vehicles. No crashes or injuries have been reported pertaining to this issue, which the automaker discovered through warranty claims for inoperative air conditioners.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the air conditioner clutch drive bolt for free.
What Owners Should Do: Acura will begin notifying owners in late July and advises owners to take their vehicle for service as soon as notification is received. Owners can call the automaker at 800-382-2238, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov, for more information.
