The contact owns a 2008 Acura MDX. While driving at 60 mph, the contact noticed that the hood was vibrating. In addition, the vehicle lost power. The accelerator pedal was depressed, but the vehicle hesitated before accelerating. The vehicle stability assist, tcs, ABS and vtm may not operate was displayed across the message board. The vehicle was taken to multiple independent mechanics, who diagnosed that the hood needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 133,000.

I purchased this car used in October 2014. Ever since I had the car I notice that the hood starts vibrating as if it is going to open. I have pulled off to the side of the road several times to check that the hood is not open. I have contacted Acura headquarters and they have told me to go to the dealer. What I have notice is that the latch moves back and forth easily and the hood flexes when you open it and pull on it. I have seen several complaints about this and people go to the dealerships and we get told the same thing. Everything is normal. I have never seen a car hood vibrate the way this hood vibrates.

My car was parked on driveway and suddenly right passenger window glass broken by itself. Initially I thought some one smashed it but after looking at video surveillance system I found that it broke on it's own. I am glad that my 14 month old was not in car otherwise it's huge disaster. I uploaded video to youtube. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?V=MX2-wei_twe&feature=youtu.be.

At higher speeds the hood flutters up and down, even though the hood is latched down. The dealer said it was common and wanted to charge me to fix it...
