stuck wt. transmission woes ???
By tfit on


2002 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We just purchased our mdx after having 3
odysseys.The main objective was to move into a
high quality, performance suv. Honda was always
great to us when service was required on our vans.
Now the problem....our mdx is having a 1500 rpm
transmission shutter. it has 42000 miles. By doing
proper research I know it will need a transmission.
it has the same transmission probems as some
hondas( that honda will cover to 100,000 miles).So
far acura is doing warranty to 50,000 miles.Acura is
playing games with customers and treating
problems case by case , as not to tarnish the acura
image by hidding its real problems from the public.

Best Features

Fun to drive , nice interior.

Worst Features

give acura customers same or expected better warranty that honda customers are getting. A great engine needs a great transmission, and acura needs to improve the product & customers relations in regards to this issue. Otherwise why not look for a Toyota or other comparables??
