Jan 28, 2013 (2:23 pm)
My 2006 MDX car was in park but rolled on its own and crashed my baby sitters garage and caused damages. I have turned the vehicle into the dealership and they are replacing the gear, as there is a recall coming up in the first week of February. For the past one month, I am using a rental car they provided me .
My experience in dealing with Acura client service is not great. Client services told me there is no problem with my car and I have to claim the damages through my insurance on the contrary to what the dealership doing to help the situation.
It appeared to me client services are trying to get out of a liability law suit.

#952 of 967 05 MDX thinking about 13
Feb 06, 2013 (3:51 pm)
I bought a 05 MDX new and have 132k miles w/o any problems so I was surprised to see the amount of TC and Tran problems, but then I haven't been on this board for a LONG time. I'm now thinking about a new 2013 MDX and am concerned if Acura has resolved these drive train issues. Can anybody enlighten me?

I truly understand your situation. Acura will never accept there is a problem with the vehicle as it is liability for them, but they will change the associated part saying as there is a recall for this and so we are simply doing this for your protection. This is my experience. MDX killed 2 people by taking off by itself when it was parked in front of subway. It happened to someone in Chicago and Acura said there was no problem for the vehicle. I have reported my incident to National Highway patrol, Federal High commission and Secretary of state to help others who get trapped into this. Unless we all join together and act it is not easy to fight against a big corporation. Did you get the recall letter from Acura yet? I had 5K in damage and Acura washed off their hands and asked my insurance to pay.

No resolution. We have given up and are just "used to it".
It still is unsatisfying to have it 1100 rpms trying to go up a 5% incline hearing it chug having to pound the gas to get it shift (or use the paddles) to only have it speed up too much and have to back off. The expectation is I depress the gas enough to go up the hill at the speed I want and the transmission will shift accordingly and not chug.
The 2011 with the software patched transmission does not have this issue! We have driven both on the same hill with the same driving style.
If you get any resolution please keep us posted. Thank you for taking this forward to the BBB.
