Vehicles Affected: Approximately 19,500 model-year 2014-15 Acura MDX crossovers and RLX sedans equipped with the brand’s collision mitigation braking system

The Problem: According to the automaker, if a vehicle detected ahead is traveling near a metallic structure, the system could incorrectly determine that a forward collision is imminent and unexpectedly apply the brakes. This increases the risk of a crash.  

“No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue in the United States, but one crash was reported in Japan related to this issue,” Acura said in a statement.

The Fix: Dealers will update the software for free. 

What Owners Should Do: Acura will begin notifying owners in June. Owners can call Acura at 800-382-2238 for more information.
