Open a case with Acura Client Services. You'll be given a representative that will open a case and work with Acura and your dealer in possibly getting this issue resolved.
While there is no set rule or promise I can give, there are plenty of cases where Acura will approve the repair where the customer will either pay nothing, or just labor.
My wife's friend had her 2002 transmission replaced at 85,000 miles for free some two years ago.
You might want to try heading over to the unofficial "acuramdx" site and submitting your issue in the "Transmission Problems" forum. This is a common problem and Honda/Acura knows it.

congrats on getting the issue resolved on the transmission. Of course, that was two years ago. It's a different world today but worth the effort.

I have had the same problem on my 2008 MDX. I found a technical service bulletin from Acura, dated 2/6/2009, that addresses the issue. They are saying that the probable cause is faulty rear dampers. Corrective action: replace both rear dampers, the damper mounting bolts, and the stabilizer link flange nuts. I have an appt. in 3 days for repair. I will update.
Here is the link to where I found the TSB.

#1743 of 2044 Sound of when AC condenser kicks in and turns off??
May 17, 2009 (2:59 pm)
Had my 2009 MDX for several days. Notice when use AUTO climate control, there is a sound ("click" followed by fan-like sound) that goes on and off, on top of the engine sound. I figured that it's from AC, probably due to condenser kicking in and turning off.
I know it's probably a dumb question, but I wonder if this is normal.

I had the same thing happen this morning on my 2002. Plugged in a cell phone charger and poof! No radio, screen, or acc socket power. I haven't checked the fuses yet, but it sounds like that isn't the problem.
Let me know if you find a solution, I'll do the same.

Mine did end up being a fuse. Guess I will throw away the charger.
#1746 of 2044 Very Loud Noise
Jun 17, 2009 (12:20 pm)
I have a 03 MDX and recently I have had happen twice a very loud "electric motor sound" in the car. It has happened going from reverse to drive. Anyone have a clue as to what this loud sound could be. It is so loud it blocks out all other noise and can only be stopped by turning the car off.
