Bmmandm (or anyone else who might have some suggestions),
Did you ever find the source of the scraping noise from under the front of the car after passing over a speed bump? Having the same problem with my 2009 MDX with 8500km. Definately not the ABS which is a short term thumping that occurs at about 30km/hr for about 3 seconds when the car hasn't been run for awhile. The scraping seems to occur after you go over a (small) speed bump at slower speed and go back on the accelerator. Nothing hanging under the car, not the wheels hitting the wheel well, and not the mud flaps or anything else hitting the ground. Took the front wheels off and don't see anything unusual. Doesn't happen every time but enough to cause concern. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have to exact same problem w/ AM FM radio not working, and XM CD DVD all working. I didn't notice problem until mid January 2010.
Have you been able to fix? If so, what was diagnosis?

I posted wind noise when I had my new 09 MDX Sport back in June (only one month I had). Technician said it is the sound from outside due to car box design.
It doesn't have any air leak thru window. My wife felt this noise right after we had the car. But the wind noise is getting so loud even when I drive at 45mph. The loud wind noise is continue when I drive at 60mph and above on local thruways or highways. My ears are getting heart after an hour drive.
Had anyone had this experience? I couldn't believe it is Acura quality. it is worst than my previous Jeep. It must be something wrong. Any one have any thoughts?
Will complain to dealer at next service. Someone mentioned it caught loud noise when connecting thru blue tooth when receive calls. But I got wind noise no matter what conditions. Please help.

Is it wind noise or "whining from engine area"?
See if you can find a TSB #08-031 issued Aug 09
Symptoms are very similar to what you mentioned.
I do not have a copy...try googling it

I had a "wind noise" on my '07 Sport, sounded like the drivers side window was down a crack. Dealer tested it and replaced all the soft parts of the door seal and no more problem.

I guess I am the Lucky ONE who encounters both Radio and Wind Noise...
The radio issue seems like software related issue, I will contact my dealer and see what they have to say. It will cost me $$$ since it is out of warranty period, sux...
I will keep you posted.

The dealer says it is mechanical issue and need to bring it in for diagnosis... basically the radio is dead???

Well, our first warranty related(thank god) problem on our '07 MDX Sport/Ent. with 35k miles. The "Sport" doesn't work!
The "ADS" light was coming on for a while and Acura said it was just a sensor so we put it off but now the sport/comfort button doesn't work, it just stays in comfort mode. We'll be dropping her off at Crest Acura real soon. Anyone else have problems with ADS?

My lound noise actually are the engine sound and high wind sound.
I could hear my engine sound clearly when I speed up and down. (I mean louder than usual passenger car---it wasn't like that before).
I am ride like sports car (my is sport +ent). I could even hear the tire sound when ride thru hole or bump. The wind sound is loud right start at 40 mph at local road.
I checked all sealed rubbers around windows and windshield are ok.
I can't understand what these sound transmit into interior cabin.
This was happen even worse after I had my blackberry bold w/ hand free link (I was using Motorola before). But, the loud sound still exist if I didn't carry it on car.
Anyone has this experience?

My 08 MDX Tech does the same thing (screeching sound coming from the rear) but only on certain speed humps. I first noticed the sound in 2008, a year after I purchased the vehicle. I E-mailed my Acura dealer in the spring of 2009 and never got a reply.
A year later, a few weeks ago, after hearing a clunking sound that was coming from the right rear getting worse I looked under the car and noticed the right rear shock was oily and assumed it was losing hydraulic fluid. Not sure if the two incidents are connected.
