"Both of the "transistors" for the front and back AC units have gone out at a cost of about $300 each. Engine mounts had to be replaced at about 45,000 miles. The transmission went out at 94,000 miles and the "factory rebuilt" from the Acura dealer only went 16,000 miles before it had to be replaced. Other than that, the only inconvenience is that the rear seat is not too comfortable."

"I own this truck new 3 miles, for repairs, only ones i'm being at the dealer for a switch recall, an they told me i have a problem with my transmission the installed a new one (under warranty) but I never notice the problem. I have one concern, when the truck is loaded with 7 passengers is kind of difficult try to stop the truck fast enough do it. Also always i believe this truck is better loaded that empty. Need better brakes that why I change the rotors for drilled and ventilated much better."

"I bought this MDX in 2008. Certified from an Acura dealer. I have had it 6 and a half years and put almost 70,000 miles on it. I always keep up with oil changes and other simple maintenance. I have needed new tires and new brakes, that is it! We just drove it over 600 miles for a vacation this year. I have to drive in the snow for my job and it is great in the snow. From past experience I have learned just cause a car/suv claims to be good in snow does not mean it is true. The MDX awd does the job. I hope to get a new car next year. I have researched other suvs but I always come back to the MDX as the best for its price."
