2009 Acura MDX Sport Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
This SUV looks good on the outside, that is about it. I purchased it in September with only 69k miles on it. like 3 months later, I am hearing a whirling noise coming from underneath the vehicle, while driving on the highway. At first, I was thinking it was a wheel bearing. Took it to my mechanic, he said it is not the wheel bearing, could be the Torque Converter. I was thinking perhaps, the propeller shaft and I still think it is the propeller shaft. The engine sounds horrible. My guess are the pulleys. Brand new, this vehicle is 40k, glad I didn't buy brand new. I will be going back to Toyota because Acura (Honda) is very disappointing.
We were so disappointed ...... trim pieces broke, sunroof leaked and fried relay circuits, handles for seats broke, leather on drivers seat ripped, and many more. Certainly others have had these problems because we are gentle folks and maintain the car to a fault. Where does Acura get these faulty trim pieces? I forgot to mention rear suspension pieces broke at about 40000 and other front suspension problems. Never again Acura (or Honda I guess).
