2017 Acura RDX Speedometer and dash board gaps

I just bought a 2017 Acura RDX and I notice there is a huge gap between the top of the gauge cluster( speedometer) and dash board. I also can see a little light coming through it. Does any one here has the same problem?? Need your help. I went to the dealership and they said this is normal.. But I still don't think this is normal because it looks cheap.

take a look at this thread:

MULTIPLE people have had the same dash separation that you are having with their '16s.
it looks to be a defect in manufacturing, so while normal to 16s and 17s....not normal in the sense that IT SHOULDNT be happening

Lots of RDX's have this issues. Its so bad, Acura wont do anything about it. I feel like getting this out to the local media outlets.

I am having the same issue. I first noticed a gap in June when my '16 RDX was 5 mos old. I noticed light coming from inside the dash. Dealership tried replacing the cluster twice and then I was told there's no repair. I called Client Care and was told it has been repaired to the best of their ability. I am very frustrated that my car with less than 8,000 miles looks like it has an after market part. and no one at Acura cares to help resolve this.
