2014 Acura MDX Recalled for Faulty Drive Shafts

By | December 13, 2013
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has announced a recall for select 2014 Acura MDX AWD models manufactured between May 6, 2013, and October 14, 2013. These vehicles may have loose bolts that attach to the drive shaft of the automatic transmission. Left untreated, the bolts could loosen and allow the drive shaft to detach. If the drive shaft detaches while the vehicle is in motion, it could cause excessive noise and possible damage to the vehicle, all of which can increase the risk of an accident. Honda will notify owners of the affected vehicles, and dealers will inspect and tighten the drive shaft attaching bolts as needed. The recall is expected to begin in late December. Owners can contact Honda by phone at (800) 999-1009 with recall number JCB, or online at www.recalls.honda.com.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline is also available for contact by phone at (888) 327-4236, or online at www.safercar.gov. Source: NHTSA
