2006 Acura MDX Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 102011

MDX 6-cyl

  • 79,000 miles


The car had begun shuddering at between 30-40 miles an hour and then at a very low RPM in 1st gear, the car started jerking heavily. The dealership first said they would charge me 125$ to diagnose the problem, unless it was the torque converter as I had mentioned. Now they want 2800$ to fix the problem. - at what point in time - as I've now seen this as a recurring problem with MDX's do they give a recall? this is a young car.

problem #1

  • 67,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Acura MDX. When the contact drove the vehicle between 35-40 mph, the contact heard a rumbling sound coming from the drive train and the vehicle began to vibrate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the contact had the torque converter and the ECU replaced. There were no prior warnings. The current and failure mileages were 67000.
