Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Acura MDX Owner Comments

problem #2

MDX 4WD 6-cyl

  • 33,000 miles


I purchased an Acura certified 2009 MDX base with Bridgestone dueler H/L 400 tires on it. The quality of Bridgestone tires were unacceptable. These tires had no grip on wet road and road covered with light snow. There were multiple cases when my all wheel drive skidded on the highway during lane change. Due to safety concerns, I had to replace all four tires within a few months of purchasing the vehicle. Acura should not use Bridgestone tires in its vehicles. Also, Firestone/Bridgestone should recall these tires and refund money for the replacement cost of my tires. Will appreciate if you please look into this issue.

MDX 6-cyl

  • 4,000 miles
Acura MDX (2009) vibration issues: Since purchasing the vehicle new, there is a vibration driving at speeds exceeding 70 mph. The vibration can be felt through the chasis and steering wheel. The dealer has replaced the tires, rims, drive shaft and performed multiple balancing and alignments. The manufacturer representative could not resolve the issue initially, but later suggested the replacement of the drive shaft. This worked initially but the problem has resurfaced again. I filed a lemon law claim that Acura has neglected to respond to fully. They tried to fix it, but the problem is still present and getting worse. When driving the car, it feels at times, as if the wheels are going to fall off. It is often worse when driving up hill when the car is cold and the weather cold. It appears to get better as the car warms up, though. This also appears to be a well documented concern that is documented on discussion boards such as: Edmonds- where there are currently 59 posts on the topic and all similar to my experience.
