Transmission problem at 400 miles

2009 Acura MDX Technology and Entertainment Packages 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Bought my MDX 4 months back. After 2 months transmission fluid started leaking, noticed oil marks on my garage floor. Took to dealer - they had to open the whole transmission and check inside. The problem was a faulty "O" ring which was causing the leak. If a $20 part is faulty after 400 miles not sure what to expect from this SUV. The dealer had to remove the whole transmission, unlink it with the engine, opened up everything connected to the engine to get to the faulty O ring. Don't buy this car, for this price there are much better options in the market. I have Lexus SUV as well and it far exceeds Acura from performance and reliability.

Best Features

Roomy, good size inside. Like the exterior look.

Worst Features

Voice activated system can be better, do not like pressing the button for every command. Interior should be more quiet (compared to Lexus this is very noisy).
