Recall Alert: 2014 Acura RLX

2014AcuraRLX

Vehicles affected: About 7,387 model-year 2014 Acura RLX sedans manufactured between Aug. 7, 2012, and Nov. 5, 2013.

The problem: The bolts that attach the rear lower control arms to the subframe of the vehicle may have loosened during transport to dealerships. This could reduce steering ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

The fix: The brand's parent, Honda, will begin notifying owners this month, and dealers will replace the rear suspension lower control arm bolts for free.

What owners should do: Call Honda at 800-999-1009, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

This is a scary situation. I had it happen back in October on my new RLX. I strongly urge owners to have it checked out.
