#1655 of 2050 Cost for 105k service
Aug 21, 2008 (11:26 am)
Just made an appt for next week and was told $1250 - not expected but if that lets me drive another 100k then its worth it - interested in others experiences too. And I have had ALL of the 2001 MDX problems noted in the string and the good news was my dealer stood between me and the Acura regional folks and got most things covered that should not have gone bad

My 2002 MDX is experiencing sudden jumps in RPM (100-200) during highway cruising without any additional input from the pedal. Any idea what can be a problem?
#1657 of 2050 Acura care extended warranty.....?
Aug 22, 2008 (3:51 am)
I am planning to buy MDX 2004 w/50K mileage form the local dealer (not acura, eg. Toyota). The question is, am I qualified to buy an acura care extended warranty plan after my purchase? If the answer is yes, then, is this warranty will cover my MDX in USA and Canada? Because certified acura vehicles are covered in entire North America........
Your thought will appreciated.

I tried to buy an extended warranty from Bernardi for our '04 MDX w/ 55k on it and it was unavailable. Too old or too many miles, I can't remember.

Okay, 2 1/2 years later I forgot I posted that question. But I see you posted a fix. I still never fixed the lights , but will try now that you posted the help. Thanks.
#1660 of 2050 08 MDX steering shaking and vibration
Oct 07, 2008 (5:41 pm)
I had it for 3 three weeks. I took it back to the dealer four times already but it still there. When it hit to the higway speed ( 70 and above) the steering start vibrating and bit shaking too. The dealer did put the new set of tires and did something with the rotors. Do you have any suggestion?
#1661 of 2050 "Drag" feeling at 40mph and 20mph?
Oct 07, 2008 (6:32 pm)
Just bought a base '08 MDX (after eyeing one and constantly thinking about for over a year) a couple of weeks ago and I try to "hypermile" whenever I can.
It seems that when I am coasting to a light, the car seems to have a "dragging" feeling (like brakes are being applied) when I am coasting down to around 40mph. It seems to happen again around 20mph.
Am I just being paranoid or is this normal from the automatic transmission?
Any comfort/advice is appreciated

I noticed the samething when I got my 08 Sport/Ent. MDX. Watch the tach when you feel the drag. The vehicle is actually down shifting to a lower gear. I thought that was pretty cool and it actually helps out by saving your brake pads.

I had a smiliar problem but the car was a bit older. The steering wheel would shake significantly when applying the brakes at 55+ mph.
As it turned out, one dealer told me they replaced the rotors. They lied. They resurfaced them. All other dealers went off the assumption the rotors were new.
What happened was the resurfacing was not done properly, which was causing the shaking. The fix: brand new brakes and rotors on the car.
You should contact Acura Client Care (I think it's in your owners manual) and tell them the problem. They will get you in touch with the right people. For me, they even contacted the dealership they felt was the best and made all the arrangements. I got excellent care and the car was finally fixed.
