2015 MDX Tech sh-awd. Happened to catch this today when the light hit it just right. Both headlights have the same what looks like a crack in them on the inside. It looks like a stress crack but both headlights are original and the cracks identical. Is this by design? I wonder what lights on a 2017 or 2018 with almost no miles look like? This car has 30,000 but I can see that with the hard right plastic parts could crack too. I kinda wonder if it is a crack how many of us have the same issue?

Not a crack. Just a line from the mold. Looks normal, to me.

FYI - it lights up with a flashlight on it like a crack does. I am not convinced it is a cast mark - but if is by design then I am not worried about it.

Same deal on both sides of our 2014. Same contour. The discontinuity doesn't extend to the outside, so it's not a crack. I think it may be a feature of the manufacturing process. If it's a "design feature" its purpose eludes me.

I am beginning to think they put it together in two pieces that don't always align perfectly hence the dogleg at the top of my top image.
