#643 of 967 SB-06-050 on MDX! What does this warranty extension cover?
Aug 29, 2011 (2:50 pm)
I came across Service Bulletin : SB-06-050 on the NTSB board when I searched for 2004 MDX problems and this service bulletin talks about "Warranty Extensions" for 2002-2006 models as part of a class action law suite settlement. This one was filled on May 09, 2008.
But I am not sure if Acura folks are honoring this settlement, since it does NOT specifically talk about "transmission" problems in the "summary" section of the Service Bulletin.
Has anyone have full copy of this Service Bulletin and what it covers!?

That lawsuit was for Honda/Acura's "bloated" MPG statement. Basically the lawsuit said that Acura, actually Honda, inflated their MPG statement. So Honda said it got 18 mpg, when it really got 16mpg, so the factory warranty was extended from 75k to 76k.

I own a 2002 mdx and just replaced the transmission at a cost of 4k. I can see people want to get a lawsuit going and that idea sounds good. how bout creating a facebook page with a name like acura problems or whatever name sounds good and will come up when typing acura in search..we can then share with friends and then inform acura headquarters that this can have a great affect on thier bottom line..unless they change their policy on fixing the issues that come with the car...just a thought and would like ideas or input ~ Thanks

So it's 2011 and we have a 2010 MDX with some weird acting transmission. Other than shifting not being as smooth as should be and choppy at times, the RPMs will actually go up and down sometimes when just cruising straight down the road. The RPMs may jump as much as 200RPM out of the blue or even starting to pulsate going up and down randomly.
We did go to the dealer yesterday and they claimed there was nothing unusual. I asked to check if there was a transmission SW update and in fact there is one, that we got. However, it didn't solve the issue.
They also made me drive another one with abour the same milage (just shy of 25,000) and it did NOT fluctuate in the RPMs like ours.
Did any of you experience this or is everything fine now?
