2010 Acura ZDX Recalled For Potential Airbag Issue

Follow Bengt

Acura is recalling some 2010 Acura ZDX vehicles for a potential issue with the dashboard surface, which might prevent the passenger-side airbag from deploying properly.

According to the automaker, some vehicles don't have the proper scoring on the underside of the dash that would allow the airbag to push through in the intended deployment pattern.

Although American Honda Motor Co., which oversees Honda's Acura luxury brand in the U.S., says that no incidents have been reported, owners are advised to bring their vehicles in for a dealership inspection; vehicles found to have the flaw will get a new dashboard. Altogether, about 1,850 vehicles are affected by the recall.

The 2010 Acura ZDX is one of several new coupe-like crossover vehicles recently introduced. Like the BMW X6, it pairs sexier sheetmetal and a leaner, lower profile with some of the utility and chunkier stance of a crossover. But as TheCarConnection.com has found, if the styling doesn't quite do it for you, the excellent powertrain and all-wheel-drive system don't quite make up for the tight rear seat or shallow cargo space.

Regarding the recall, owners are encouraged to visit http://owners.acura.com or call 800-382-2238, but they'll be contacted by mail later this month.
