Acura Issues Statement On Headlight Recall for RLX

Acura has recalled about 9,700 2014 and 2015 model year RLX vehicles in the United States for a defective headlamp. The headlight assemblies will be replaced free of charge under this recall.

The problem is with a defective film used on the inside of the light, as the below statement from Acura explains:

Acura will voluntarily recall approximately 9,700 model-year 2014-2015 RLX vehicles in the United States to replace both headlight assemblies, free of charge. The reflective film backing material inside the headlights may delaminate, which may result in the vehicle no longer conforming to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
