The contact owns a 2016 Acura Rdx. The contact stated that the steering wheel failed while exiting a fuel service station. When the contact attempted to turn the steering wheel to the right, the steering wheel abruptly locked and the vehicle drove into a ditch. There were no injuries. The steering wheel regained normal operation while reversing the vehicle out of the ditch. The contact drove the vehicle home. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer for diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 23,000.

  • 1,000 miles
I purchased a 2016 Acura Rdx with 995 miles on 1/21/2016. On the drive home, and several times since (the latest being earlier this week) while making a left turn at slow speed (after stopping or slowing) the vehicle "dies" and I keep pushing on the accelerator and after 20 seconds or so, it "grabs" and I can continue on. Current mileage on the vehicle is 1739. I called gettel Acura in sarasota fl and was told that the vehicle has to learn my driving habits and my driving style. Per gettel service manager, this should be self-correcting at about 2000 miles. (?)
