Approximately 50,000 model-year 2016-19 Acura ILX sedans are being recalled due to issues with the driveshaft. Excessive grease applied to the right driveshaft could cause the driveshaft to separate from the half shaft while in motion, potentially causing a loss of power. Also, the driveshaft could separate while the car is stopped, causing the car to roll, even it is in Park if the parking brake is not activated. Both scenarios increase the risk of a crash or injury.
Acura will begin notifying owners in late July. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the car and, if necessary, replace parts.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
