2015 RDX Seatbelt Issue

Anyone has a similar issue with the RDX's seatbelts? As soon as I purchased my new 2015 RDX, I found the front seatbelts very loose. It feels like they do not lock properly. And when I turn around and the seatbelt will become loose, and it won't retract back to tighten again when I got back to the driving position. I have to constantly pull the seatbelt tight when driving (my front passenger says the same.)

Yesterday, I saw the recall for the same issue with the MDX and RLX (but not RDX), so I gave my car a test again (and it's still pretty warm outside.) I found an empty road, braked very hard to see if the seatbelt would lock. Sure enough, it didn't. Now I am worried if I ever got into a car accident, the driver and the front passenger would get thrown out of the vehicle.

I had my dealer looked into this problem when I first bought the car. They said it worked just the same as the other RDXs on the lot. That concerned me if most of the RDXs have this issue. I want to see anyone else has the same problem, perhaps we can all call Acura and demand them to recall the vehicle to fix the seatbelts, before anyone got hurt.

    Best file a complaint with safercar.gov. If it's a common problem, they'd be the ones to make Acura address it.

    Any other owners notice this?
