Test drove many MDX that seemed great. Bought a different one that seemed a little bumpy on test drive but not super noticeable. 6 months later and after having dealer change shocks and factory recall dampers in rear it still handles road bumps terrible. Hear thud and clunking and makes you cringe with every bump. Its like it has no shocks when it hits bumps and potholes. Transmission hunts at certain speeds and RPM becomes jerky. Highway ride on smooth pavement is very good. Changes the driver seat position from 1 to 2 at random. Good interior space, seating, and interior arrangement. Overall its not the dream MDX we thought it was. Other years ride better from what we understand. But this 2015 is very bad and we have to get rid of it now so we dont have to deal with the bumps for 6 years.
Bought a 2015 MDX w/ 33,000 miles on it last weekend. Noticed a clunking sound from rear suspension right away, mainly only at slow speeds on rough pavement, however very noticeable. I just dropped it back off at dealer last night. I was just told they need to replace the rear dampers as they are faulty. I have had a really good experience with dealer and am confident they will take care of it. Just want to raise awareness for any potential buyers of used 2014-2016 MDX. I was unaware when I bought the vehicle-acura is aware of the problem and issued a service bulletin 16-035 in a July 2016.
