Same here. This is virtually a non-issue. They should send out a new sticker in the mail and have you stick it on.

Besides, I have an I4.

Good there are no other recalls. :)Although some people seem to have major issues with their TLX.:(

Seems like a bit of overkill to recall something based on a sticker. "Recall" is such a dirty word.
A good portion of recalls have to do with safety, otherwise it wouldn't fall into that category where there is a sense of urgency. This saves Acura and ensures safety:

The affected vehicles may have incorrect values for the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) front and rear printed on the safety certification label. If the vehicle is loaded to the specifications listed on the label, tire failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash.

I'm of two minds on this Recall thing. Either all the automakers are issuing copious recalls because they are fearful GM has opened pandora's box, or everyone and their mum is issuing recalls to drive the screws deeper into GM. I'm not sure...

I don't find recall to be a dirty word, you know whats dirty, COVER UP...

I agree. If something is wrong with the car and it has safety aspects to it, I'd rather they let the owners know and fix it.

I found these online. They might be interesting reading. I only briefly read three of these "primary" linked PDFs. Let me know if these are useful. If not, I can delete them.

I cannot access any of the second links in each article. I will try again when I get home.

i was able to read all the URVI pdfs, but since the filenames are the same for both links, i would assume they have the same content

first 2 is TQI (total quality inspection) for testing/inspecting stuff around the car, prolly not applicable to us

third is the SH-AWD weight label recall we all know about

last one is a software update for the audio/nav system

my whining about audio repeat/random playback button on the touchscreen is addressed! someone at acura HQ must be reading this forum lol

hope they fix the large file unplayable issue too, but i doubt it

Wow, According to B14-037 we current owners have until November 1st 2015 to get a free software update. I scheduled one for tomorrow morning using owners.acura.com. I knew the update was coming in October but was thankful Summest posted the link!! On second thought, however, maybe being the first one to update is somewhat risky since the notice has several warnings about possible side effects.
