Terrible Drive Train and Other Annoyances
Acura MDX No More, 12/20/2022
2023 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 10A)
We were initially very excited about this car. It ticked many of the boxes we needed for our family of five. I'll get right down to the issues. The drive train is jerky. The transmission doesn't release the gears quickly enough when you take your foot off the gas peddle. This feels like your car lurches forward or you are breaking when you release the gas. This isn't noticeable when on … the highway so much as when driving in traffic. I had my car in service several times and the service department said this is due to the 10 speed transmission. I had one of their loaner MDX's for the day and that car drove the same way. It's awful. The air-conditioner can't cool the car on very hot days. I had the car in for testing and they said the air was blowing at the correct temp. I saw the gauges and it was the correct temp. The problem is, the cabin air wasn't cooling down. I've rented a suburban and expedition which are much larger than the MDX and they were able to cool the car down within a couple of blocks. My MDX doesn't cool down between locations 8 miles apart. Service said the air was blowing at the correct temp. I suspect the full sunroof lining wasn't able to insulate the car and the large black dashboard kept expelling heat from the summer sun. The breaks squeal. This is because of the metallic break pads. There is nothing they can do. Mercedes, BMW, Infiniti don't seem to have this issue. Service doesn't have a fix. The wireless charger will not work on the new iPhone 14. Acura is pointing the finger at Apple. Apple pointing the finger at Acura. The steering column groans when repositioning itself after the driver gets behind the wheel. Service said they are aware of this and it's the motor. Nothing they can do. Gas mileage is no where near where Acura said it should be. Over all, the car looks great. It's very roomy and comfortable. But all the other issues make it a terrible car to own. I'm trading mine in for an Infiniti. I'm tried of the issues with no resolution or compliancy because it's how it's designed.
