New For 2013

Acura treated the 2013 ZDX to a mild cosmetic freshening, but the segment-blurring crossover still looks much as it did when it debuted for 2011. Acura has also slimmed down the range to a single variant, which it dubs a “value-added package.”

Overview

Acura openly admits that the 2013 ZDX is a niche vehicle, but three years after its debut, we’re still trying to figure out exactly what that niche is. The ZDX shares its platform and powertrain with the more traditional MDX but wraps them in a rakish, coupe-like body that receives some minor tweaks for the 2013 model year. Many of those cues, including the steeply pitched roof, hidden rear door handles, and panoramic sunroof, lend it the character of a sport sedan—fitting, perhaps, as the big 4400-pound ZDX manages somehow to drive like one. The Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) tosses in adaptive dampers and a surprisingly stiff sport setting that helps iron out a fair amount of body roll in corners. Sadly, no amount of technology helps offset the shortcomings of the ZDX’s vanity. A tall floor and a low roof force all passengers to surrender headroom, and the tumblehome over the cargo area means there’s but a meager (for a crossover) 26.3 cubic feet of space. Buyers who aren’t quite ready to put form before function can always try on the MDX for size—it offers many of the ZDX’s attributes but with much more interior space and versatility.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; and traction and stability control are standard. Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are lumped into the technology package. Blind-spot detection, radar-based cruise control, and a collision-mitigating automatic braking system are included with the advance package.

You won't like:

  • Sizable blind spots

Summary

The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.
Consequences
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Fall 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners beginning on March 14, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JX2, JX3 and JX4.
