Acura Recalls RLX and MDX for Seat-Belt Issue

Do you own an Acura RLX sedan or an MDX crossover? If so you may want to be on the lookout for a notification from Honda. The company is recalling some 43,000 of these vehicles to fix potentially defective seat belts.

Curiously the safety issue in question has to do with cold weather. In temperatures lower than zero degrees Fahrenheit (-17.7 Celsius) the restraints may not release from their retracted position.

Model year 2014 RLXs as well as 2014 and 2015 MDXs are affected by the call back. At this time no accidents or injuries have been reported due to this issue, but with colder temperatures rapidly approaching for much of the country you may want to be on the lookout for a recall notice.
