So i bought my mdx with 80k miles on it dec 2009.
The technology, room, power, etc were great.
I thought that this was finally e vehicle that i could run to 300k.
Not. Turns out the torque converter was going bad at 95k miles.
The dealership said that these things happen.
I brought car to a local transmission place for a better price. They said their are many many problems with the mdx and pilot transmissions.
They recommended a full trans rebuild since it would need one eventually anyhow.
Not sure why acura and honda havent corrected this but the problem has been going on for 10 years.
Bye bye acura.
Bought my lexus instead....
Inside room with small outside.
There were issues in 2001 and 2002 concerning the transmission.
Your "transmission place" should know the difference between torque converter and transmission.
So, for them to say the MDX has issues with the transmission is false as far as the 2008 is concerned.
The SH-AWD was only two years old at the time and unfortunately there was an issue, which is no longer an issue on models after 2008.
