Smile 3rd Acura

2013 Acura RDX purchased new in 2013. Excellent vehicle. More maneuverable and far better gas mileage than the 2010 it replaced. The only downside is the drive train vibration during very cold weather and the lack of weather-stripping along the tops of the front fenders where the hood closes. All sorts of leaves and small sticks constantly collect in the tops of the fenders during the fall.

Finally got the drive train vibration in cold weather issue resolved by the dealership - drive shaft failure; replaced with new "upgraded" version. With all the complaints regarding the nagging vibration issue, one would think Acura would issue a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) to owners like GM does. The service department where we bought and get our RDX serviced said they never heard of it, but, as soon as they logged into their Acura website for repair issues, the subject popped up immediately, now all is well.
