Wow, idk where that came from. I've had the car less then 200 miles and I went to put a box in the trunk today and saw the drivers taillight on the lid had a small 2 inch crack going across it. Its odd, it kind of looks like its inside the light because the outside is still smooth. I have no idea what could have cause it. I'm gonna see if I can make the dealer replace it since it doesn't look like anything hit it.

Dealer told me it was stress cracks from someone pressing on it or pushing something on it really hard and refused to replaced. Basically I guess someone somewhere vandalized my car with the few days I had it. They did give me a nice quote of $499.18 to replace a taillight lol....lol

Sucks, but they do make a good point, possible that happened. For now you might want to seal the cracked area with clear silicone

Yeah stress cracks can happen and usually with pressure weather the screws were mounted too tight or something leaning against it

You can find the OEM taillight for much cheaper online and replace it yourself; or like AcuraPWR stated, seal it up and good to go ;)

I personally would just seal it.

almost any automotive parts store will have tape for your tail light that blends in with it's overall look, that might be an option for now.

Can you take a pic of the crack??
