Acura recalls RLX over headlamp issue

The reflective film backing in the all-LED headlamps can delaminate, in violation of federal regulations.

Acura has issued a recall for its new RLX sedan to fix an issue with the all-LED headlamps.

The 'Jewel Eye' lights are built with a reflective film backing material that is said to be prone to delamination. The issue can result in non-compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, which relates to headlight aim, brightness, reflectors and other lighting aspects.

The company claims to be unaware of any accidents or injuries that have been blamed on the problem.

The campaign affects both 2014 and 2015 models, including approximately 9,700 vehicles sold in the US. Owners can expect to receive notification via mail sometime in early February.
