The first two are targeted to the dealer and are procedures they should follow when preparing a RDX for delivery. The third one is a procedure to perform to increase the Homelink system's range and can be considered a relatively minor issue.

Just curious, how do we know if the dealer fixed these items on a recently purchased rdx? Are they required to or do we have to put out the TSB to them? I did a VIN check on the acura website and nothing comes up.

TSB is not recall. if you have any problem/issue relating to that TSB, they'll fix/replace that related parts. if they dont see any problem, they wont do it.

Thank you for posting the brake TSB. I know my rotors are shot on my 2013 RDX because I get significant shaking from time to time. I just figured I would have to eat the cost of getting them turned or completely replaced. Going to call my dealer right now to get this fixed asap.

Thanks for posting that. I took my 2016 FWD in two weeks ago and had them check this but they said it the date stamp did not apply. I think they misinterpreted what "May 27, 2015 or later" meant since I check mine before taking it in and it's Sept 2015. My VIN is right in the middle of this group.

I just had my front brakes pads and rotors replaced (i should have waited longer to get a free brake job but we couldnt stand the noise). Just curious why its been an issue since the '13 model. You would figure that would have made the change to production as soon as they found it or at least the following years model..

Brakes and Rotors replaced

The dealer had to replace the brakes and rotors on my brand new 2016 RDX, even though the vin wasn't part of the range earlier in the thread. They said it was a case by case basis and the range of vins in the bulletin isn't all inclusive.

Poor braking

My dealer replaced the rotor and break pads under the TSB. Now the breaking is very poor/slow and my car's stopping distance has been increased. Is it normal? I didn't have this issue when the car was new. Does the new car has breaks already bed in?

i took my 2016 RDX AWD in today for front brake shaking issue.
i had this issue since around 5,000 mileage but didnt bother taking in because my laziness.
my mileage was reading around 23,xxx when i took her in today.

I explained briefly what issue was as well as showing my advisor TSB i printed out.
they replaced front rotors and pads.
i guess i saved my money and time for rotor and pad replacement in future.

If 2016 was the redesign, why do most TSBs cover 2013-2016, and have the 2017 separate? Shouldn't it be mostly 2013-2015, and 2016-2017?

Agreed. The 2016 is really more cosmetic than anything, but why did they not make running changes for things like the brakes and steering wheel creak? The car has been out since 2013, Acura should have resolved these issues by now.

Thanks for the post.
Will have mine done with my next oil change in a month or so and right before winter.
The rear suspension has been loud even in summer but louder in cooler weather..
I complained about the noise when I got the RDX and was told they could find nothing wrong.

The key sentence is "The transmission fluid deteriorates quicker than expected when it is exposed to intermittent high heat loads under specific driving conditions."

how often do you change the ATF?

I just had 16-043 done to my 2013 RDX (which i just bought used) - they did the triple flush and guess what... 1 mile later and the same judder/shudder/stutter around 1.5k RPM.

What does one do if the the Service Bulletin work does not work (other than bend over)?

You might consider the missionary position !

Is your warranty expired?

Hey Skidoor - warranty is not expired. Acura dealer did the service free of charge - they could not have been nicer, etc. Will call them tomorrow to let them know it didn't work (and to ask them what their preferred position is).

it is a 2013 AWD with 36K

This new bulletin looks like it's the same thing, but covering more VINs right?

The last time I took my car in for the brake issue, they replaced the pads and I've only heard the brake noise a couple times.

We had the brakes replaced last year under the TSB. They have been great ever since.
