Vehicle

2008 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought car 2/29/08. Nightmare begins. 3/17- A/C blows hot - dealer replaces incorrectly installed refrigerant line; steering wheel shimmys during braking - dealer turns rotors; radio won't hold presets - dealer reprograms key fobs 4/7- steering wheel still shimmys under braking - dealer replaces rotors and pads; radio still not working - dealer states "it works now" 4/15 - radio presets disappear again - dealer replaces radio tuner 5/22 - radio still won't hold presets; Acura regional rep states "there's no remedy"; problem is under investigation by Acura engineering; 6/4 - Acura customer svc rep states they know about the problem but there's no known date when problem will be resolved

Best Features

Bluetooth. Hands Free Link. 3 zone A/C temp controls. Ride and handling are outstanding for an SUV

Worst Features

Fix the radio! It's shameful that Acura knows about this problem , which may not be widespread, but doesn't really seem to care about us unfortunate folks who got stuck with the problem cars; they refuse to replace the vehicle and say that Lemon Laws don't apply b/c it's not a safety issue!!
