Statement by Acura Regarding Seat Belt Recall: 2014 RLX and 2014-2015 MDX
- Approximately 43,000 Acura vehicles are subject to this recall in the U.S.
- Both front seat belts will be replaced, free of charge
Acura will voluntarily recall approximately 7,000 model-year 2014 RLX vehicles and approximately 36,000 MDX vehicles from the 2014-2015 model years in the United States to replace the front seat belts, free of charge. In very low temperatures (below 0°F) the driver's and front passenger's seatbelts may not release from the retracted position. A seatbelt that cannot be used by the seat occupant increases the risk of injury in a crash. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
Acura is announcing this recall to encourage all owners who purchased an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin in late-Oct. In addition, owners of these vehicles can determine if their vehicles require repair by going to recalls.acura.com or by calling (800) 382-2238 and selecting option 4.
