Go for the after market. I put an after market hitch on my 2008 myself and it was easy and cheep. About $250 and it looks better than the factory hitch. On the 2008 version the factory hitch has two electrical plugs on the outside which makes it look cluttered. My hitch is just the hitch - very neat. They provide a wire harness that just plugs into the cars wiring on the left side at the rear of the car. It just sits in the storage area and when I want to use it I hang it over the bumper and close the lit on it. My car did not have a fuse in the main fuse box for the hitch. The car manual show where it is so just get one and plug it in before you check wiring. I don't remember the supplier but they did have an excellent video on the web that showed you just how to do it. It would be easier with two people for the lifting but I did it by myself.

Do you know which brand is your hitch and model number if you have it. Also, Can you put a picture online?
#545 of 552 problems w/ Thule 480R?
Apr 26, 2010 (6:52 am)
Anyone tried to install Thule 480R rapid traverse feet on a 2010 MDX? The "model specific" fit kit measurements are too narrow for roof mounting. Even though the kit is for "2007 and newer" model years, I wonder if the 2010 is wider than previous years. If you have experienced this problem and/or a solution, I'd love to hear!
#546 of 552 Sport Running Boards problem

I piece of the black molding on the back passenger side of my sport running board fell off. Is it possible to get that piece and have it fixed, or am I going to have to get a whole new running board?

Is your running board still under warranty? When I bought my 2010 MDX I was told the running boards have 1 year warranty, 3 years if you installed it at time of car purchase.
#548 of 552 Remote Start
Oct 15, 2010 (12:01 pm)
Has anyone installed a remote start system in their MDX? I am contemplating on installing a Viper 5902 on my 2010 MDX. My sales rep at an Acura dealer told me that it may not be in my best interest to install a remote start since it may not work all the time due to frequency interference. Also, can anyone recommend a professional shop that specializes in alarm installation in the NY/NJ area with a reasonable pricing? Or should I just go to the dealer and have it installed? A Long Island shop that works with a Mercedes dealer quoted me $650 for installation and part. Any feedback on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have the same problem. I just got the 480R with 1549 fit kit for our 2010 Acura MDX. Did you find out the correct measurements? I was going to call Thule, but they are not open till Tuesday.
