Not a good experience
By Rich on
2001 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car in 2000 thinking I was paying premium price for a premium car. In 2004 while still under warranty the car began making a vibrating noise. This was very intermittent and the local dealer was unable to replicate the problem. The problem has gradually gotten worse. With 77,000 miles on the car I finally discovered the transmission needed replacing. Acura ¨customer service¨ informed me I would only have to pay $1180 of the $3800 repairs. They explained that I didn't always get the car serviced at Acura. In the next sentence they said they weren't responsible for the local dealer not being able to diagnose the problem.
Good wet road and snow traction. Nice amenities. Handles nicely around corners.
Fix the well documented transmission problems with this and other Acura cars. Improve customer service.
