I purchased this SUV with 59k on it and have been driving it for the last 7 years.
I've taken onto the beach, into the woods, slept in it at campsites, and up and down the East Coast.
The transmission and engine are still running strong.
I did have to replace a blown A/C hose and a bunch of tires, but I couldn't be happier with the vehicle.

I used to be a fan of Acura until I purchased an Acura MDX and ran into ALL KINDS of Power Transmission issues.
I'm not the type of person who is a "complainer", but believe me when I tell you that Acura is having all kinds of issues with the torque converters on their transmission.
Most of the time, the issues show up right after the warranty.
The dealership (McGrath Acura) will give you the run around and have you contact the Acura Customer Care 1-800 #.
Once you do that, if you complain loud enough they will assign you to a District Manager who will do absolutely nothing to satisfy you.
If you're smart, do a simple Google Search on Acura transmission issues and see what comes up.
You will be amazed by the number of complaints that loyal Acura customers have regarding Transimission issues

I love this vehicle and it broke my heart when in two days the transmission was gone. I love this vehicle yet after paying thousands of dollars and servicing transmission-nothing. I called Acura and they were useless. I had a recall at 40,000 to LOOK at transmission just to save them from when it does go out and it will!! Serveral shops do them and make a living from them when we called around. I thought Chrysler had issues but you DON't get what you pay for here!! Will never buy again to not get any support from them.
Acura brings a new sport-utility vehicle to the marketplace, combining great on-road performance, class-leading fuel economy and outstanding all-weather handling with seven-passenger seating and cavernous cargo capacity.

FYI, took my 2001 MDX to Acura Columbus. Was hearing a noise similar to a rumble strip from the front right of the car. Acura Columbus said it was the torque converter and would cost $2000 to replace!...
