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.

I did some research and found out that Acura had a bunch of bad radios from its supplier - Acura has a TSB out for it. Its an issue with the radio unit and has to be swapped out. You can try disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. That may cause the am/fm to start working again as it did in my case - note that you'll need to have the radio code handy to program it in after the reset and also the NAV code if your car has one. However this may only be a temporary fix. I see yours is a 2005 model too and you may be out of luck wrt the warranty. Try taking it to your dealer and see if they'll 'goodwill' it in and swap it out for free.

Noticed this same problem on my 07 MDX with 35K miles on it. Only happens when I go over speed bumps. It always corresponds with a lack of power. I noticed last night when it did it, the VSA light flashed.

The problem is always to repeat the noise for the dealer. My scraping noise only happens once every couple of weeks. It doesn't actually happen when going over the bump, but rathur after you clear the bump, release the brakes, and the instant you go back on the gas. Also mine seems to be coming from the front end rathur than the back end. Took the front wheels off the other day (man, they are heavy) to see if maybe a stone (or something) is caught in the brake pads and gets dropped down against the rotor after hitting the speed bump. Yes that is pretty unlikely but worth the shot. Cars, cars, cars...aren't they fun! I'll keep an eye on the VSA light...thanks for the tip.

I have a 2007 MDX. Has anyone purchased a remanufactured rim?
Does the rim look as good as an OEM one?
Who remanufactures the best ones?

Yes, I have had the exact same problem with my 2005 MDX. I took it into the dealer and they could not replicate the problem and told me they had never heard of that happening. It started when the car was 2 years old, with ~30,000 miles. It had not happened in a while (maybe a year) until about 2 months ago when it started doing it again. It can be very scary.
#1861 of 2050 memory seat not working correctly
Mar 19, 2010 (8:50 pm)
I have a 2007 MDX. Has anyone experienced problems with the seat position memory? I know the positions are programmed correctly but I have to repeatedly press the buttons and get minor changes in the seat and mirror positions. Eventually, after pressing the button about 12 times the seat and mirror positions are correct.

I have a 2008MDX with 49K km and it is doing the same thing. When I return to Canada I'll take in for warranty. The memory works only occasionally.
