@some guy11 I had a 16 Accord and the LED strips went out. One was right before the warranty and they replaced it at no charge. The second went out right after warranty and they covered that one as well. I leased the car as I did my 19 TLX. They did the right thing as they have to replace the whole light assembly. It's not cheap. As for the jewel led lights on the TLX I would think they are good as they've been around for a few years now..

I donít know what the fix costs of if the owners even know itís out. You donít see your own DRLs.
Letís just hope they fixed that issue before they start putting it on the next generation of Acura products

They replaced the whole assembly for the jewel DRL or the strip DRL

This was for the 16 Accord I had. There wasn't a jewel headlamp on that car. The DRL LED strip started to go dim. It was a defect. There replaced the headlamp and LED strip because they are both together as one piece.

FYI this is the same deal with the TLX taillight LED strip. If you get water in the housing, which was a relatively common problem, the you got a whole new taillight assembly. There is apparently no "fixing" these LED strips. It was nice of HondAcura to replace these units under and outside of warranty, but I've seen enough of them on the roads to believe that owners might end up paying for replace housings on their own dime within a couple years. So... those willing to give them another chance can hope they get their act together for the next gen. Not exactly the quality you expect when buying HondAcura.

TLX taillight is currently $307

Accord headlight is currently $656

Looks like the RDX lights. Smaller and more jewel eye LEDs with a strip below it. Look past the three hole cutouts.

The little gridded area right on the DRL makes that section look skewed and Iíve seen it in person

"Not exactly the quality you expect when buying HondAcura."

The problem is that some of these parts are from third parties. In the case of the Accord LED DLR it was not produced by Honda. If Honda agrees to use their parts and is sold on the quality, then it may be something not known until the customer is using in the real world after some time. As for the issue with the Accord light, it appears to happen before 40k miles for most. So hopefully many will use their warranty after looking at YouTube videos for information. Yes it was nice of Honda to replace the one after warranty. I've been a long time customer of Honda/Acura and makes perfect sense with all of the competition out there. I'm sure the vendor of the light is hearing it from Honda on the quality issue.
