Acura is recalling 19,502 examples of the MDX and RLX because the Collision Mitigation Braking System can activate without warning. The fix is a software update.

If there's one issue we have with the Acura RLX, it's that it's not a particularly exciting car. It's a solid luxury sedan, but its standard V6 engine - complete with 310 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque - is lacking when you can snap up a BMW 5 Series with a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8. The RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD should address this complaint.

Acura has endured a year of mixed reviews and middling sales for its new RLX flagship. Meanwhile, the Japanese automaker has been readying what may be the very best version of the car for its debut. Now the wait is almost over, as Acura will show its 2014 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD at this year's LA Auto Show.
