2019 RDX Suspension Travel Noise - Front Left

Vehicle: 2019 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Technology Package
Miles: Approx. 1000
We noticed front end "suspension travel noise" going over speed bumps at approx. 7 miles per hour. The dealer replaced faulty (noisy) left front strut - the noise has not changed. The dealer stated that this noise is normal for this vehicle. The noise is similar to the noise an older car would make, sounds like a good lubrication is needed, however the dealer has performed lubrication as well.

We don't believe this is a normal sound this vehicle should make.
Please let me know if your RDX makes any suspension travel noises over speed bumps.

Thank You

Yes, my car makes suspension noise over speed bumps. I started noticing about three months after purchasing the car. There is also what sounds like a pop from the rear passenger side of the car when turning into certain driveways.

Thanks for the response, have you discussed the suspension noise with the dealer?

same here, front drivers side sounds squeaky over speed bumps. Almost like an old bed! Lol
Just got it back from the dealer , they say they cant hear it. Also squeeky breaks which they told me is a known problem and a fix is coming out soon. I had 2019 rdx as a loaner Nd it had squeeky breaks too.

Thanks for the reply - I called Acura [https://www.acura.com/contact-us] and filed a complaint for "suspension travel noise", documented in Case-09202853
Acura stated that there will be no action taken at this time, currently Acura does not have a Service Bulletin / Recall against this issue.

My suspension is also creaky - particularly over speed bumps and in the cold. "Like an old bed" is an apt description. But mine is coming from the rear - possibly just the left hand side. My 10-year-old CRV never made these creaks. Not impressed, but not yet fussed enough to take it to the dealer just for that.

Mine just started today, itís the coldest day itís been this year, 15 degrees F, and when I go over a bump it sounds like an old squeaky bed in my front left and sometimes my front right, this freaking blows, it sounds like Iím driving a 1980s Cadillac with blown shocks, being that it has started in cold weather and some reading I have been doing, and from the poster up above saying replacing the strut didnít work, I think itís the control arm bushings probably, are other peopleís happening in cold weather or all?

Happens in cold weather for me. After the So-Cal summer.

Yes as the temperature drops the noise increases. We have noticed the noise in the 40's and below.

Thanks for the reply - So what do you think 1) the control arm bushings are a rubber material and are making a noise when flexed due to cold weather and we have to live with it, or 2) the bushings are defective/not installed correctly and Acura should fix?

I also started hearing creaking noise on my tech awd rdx when the temperature dropped below 50. I can hear it from both front left or right randomly going over speed bumps. Will open a case with acura soon just to document it for now as it is not reproducible consistently.

This is not normal..I have been driving my A-Spec in sub freezing temperatures around 15F for the last week now and have not noticed any suspension noises. I had a similar noise on my '15 Cadillac ATS just after I bought it. It was the control arm bushing and GM replaced it after I went with the Tech to re-create the noise going over a speed bump.

Mine is also doing this front and back, seems to be temperature dependent. Also if I take it for a car wash it will go away for about a week and it comes back.

Mine has the suspension noise too when running over a speed bump. Anyone fgot it fixed yet? I also have the brake squealing noise which was told Acura is aware of the brake squealing but no fix yet.
My car currently is at the dealership and waiting for their call.
