Have them check the front struts. My left one was bad and was replaced gratis.

I had asked if it could be the struts but the service manager said they weren't leaking. I have contacted the dealers GM and Acura Headquarters. Waiting on responses. Thanks for the suggestion.
#48 of 56 tire question
Feb 14, 2011 (7:20 pm)
I have an 07 Mdx that I recently purchased with 36k miles, the oem tires are 255/55/18 Michelins, I dont believe the prev owner rotated the tires since it was a lease and now the front tires are in need of replacement. my rear tires are in good shape and i priced GoodYear Eagle LS 2's, since the tire dealer told me they are a similiar tread pattern to the Mich. After reading up on AWD vehicles, is it wise to just purchase two and different Mfg's? or just pay the money for a set of four and keep the rear as backups. Also does anyone have a tire recommendation, this being our first SUV.

I don't think it would be wise to mix tires, even if it wasn't AWD... Not only that, for the best stability, it's always safest to have your best tires on the rear... which isn't optimal for a vehicle that puts the power to the front wheels, most of the time.
We have a pretty good discussion about tires, here:
Tires, tires, tires

I had the issue, and eventually the bolt that holds the drive shaft popped off. I had to replace the whole drive shaft, but it solved the problem. Check that bolt.
#51 of 56 replacing with new Latitudes
Oct 16, 2011 (4:03 pm)
My '08 MDX original Latitudes (now with 55k miles) had barely enough tread depth for last winter, were fine for the summer, but are not sufficient for the coming winter (getting close to the wear bar). I considered getting a 2nd winter set from Tire Rack, but now I'm planning to replace with another set of Latitudes -- the new ones have a warranty of 55k, for what that's worth. After reading through the helpful comments in this forum I'll say I have been satisfied with the handling (summer, rain, and snow), and road noise has been fine -- but not as quiet as a Lexus. Probably that is the noise insulation in the vehicle rather than the tires themselves though

looking at getting snow tires for '12 MDX. Northern Michigan winter along Lake Michigan.
any experience with downsizing wheels and getting 17 inch snows versus standard 18?
#54 of 56 Bridgestone Blizzak DV-V1 - cost
Jan 21, 2013 (8:03 am)
I am getting a quote from the acura dealership at Weschester PA for the set up Bridgestone Blizzak DV-V1 with tax, installation for $1090. Is that too much or can I find it cheaper else where.
Another question, would you recommend to get another set of OEM RIM for the winter tires or swap the all season for the winter?

Recommend Town Fair Tires for the best advice and pricing.
