Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Front Driveshaft Recall: 2021 Acura RDX

  • 57 vehicles are affected in Canada
  • Front driveshafts will be replaced, for free
  • No in-market warranty claims or reported crashes/injuries; issue discovered by supplier

Honda Canada will voluntarily recall 57 Acura RDX (2021) vehicles in Canada to replace the front left driveshaft, for free.

Certain incorrectly manufactured front driveshafts may be subject to premature internal wear, which could cause a vehicle to lose motive power to the front wheels or to roll unexpectedly while in park without use of the parking brake. Both potential scenarios could increase the risk of a crash.

Honda has not received any in-market warranty claims or reports of crash or injury related to this issue, which was discovered during quality inspections at the driveshaft supplier.

Honda Canada is announcing this recall to encourage each owner or lessee of an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Acura. Mailed notification to owners will occur in January 2022.
