Transmission vibrates/grinds at 35-40 mph
By kpsmith on


2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


At approximately 30,000 miles, upon acceleration, the transmission would vibrate/grind until 45 mph. I have found this to be a common problem on many Acura forums and there are 11 reports of this exact same problem on the National Highway Transportation and Safety (NHTSA) website. The problem seems to be the transmission torque converter.

Best Features

NAVI, interior and exterior styling.

Worst Features

Can hardly hear the turn signal. Suggest a warning feature that the turn signal has been on for an extended period of time. Almost impossible to change the rear wiper blade.
