Exclamation Acura ILX Recall News

Acura is recalling some 2013 and 2014 ILX and ILX Hybrid sedans for headlights that are too hot.

Under certain conditions, the headlamps do not allow sufficient heat dissipation when the vehicle is not in motion. Add engine heat and ambient summer heat, and the headlamps could cause damage to the reflector unit. In extreme conditions, the headlights may overheat and could cause smoke, melting or fire.

The fix

On affected vehicles, Acura will replace both the left and right headlight assemblies with new, improved ones that dissipate and handle the heat better. Plan on leaving the vehicle for the day for the repair--it involves removing the vehicle's front bumper to gain access to the headlight assemblies.

Acura is managing this recall by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and will be sending out notification letters to owners starting July, 2014.

To determine if a vehicle is involved in this recall, call local dealers with the vehicle in question's VIN. For more info or answers to questions regarding this recall call Acura Client Services at 800-382-2238 or the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) at 888-327-4236, and reference Acura recall # 14-018 entitled: Recall - Potential Headlamp Overheating, Fires.
