Great Ride Except for Transmission
By justman on


2003 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav and Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I love my MDX, but now have to to trade it in and don't want to or have $5,000 for a new one.
These SUVs are known to have transmission problems, wish I would have known that before I spent so much on it.
But, I will say, I bought mines brand new and have had it for 8 years with now major issues.
Just normally wear and tear.
Would love to get another one, but Acura still has issues with the tranny.
So, I think I'm going to go green and get a KIA Sorento.
Better gas mileage and it doesn't cost so much.

Best Features

I just love the MDX overall.

Worst Features

Transmission, Transmission, Transmission! Acura really needs to fix this. You spend so much money for it and then it has issues like this that will cost you an arm and leg to fix. Come on Acura!!!
