Purchased a brand new 2016 MDX and within 10 months started having problem with the transmission - jerking with sharp squeaking sound whenever gears shifted (lower gear). Had driven less than 10,000 miles when this problem started. Dealership replaced the transmission, but then also changed the radiator and the starter (since that also apparently had issues !) - all this took almost a month. In short, major components were bad/poor quality (?) in a brand new car - only major remaining part to replace is the engine !!! After the repairs, car still gives slight jerk during gear shifts. Dealership and Corporate customer service response was - slight jerk is normal for MDX. So buyers beware - from personal experience it seems Honda quality is not transferred to its luxury brand !!! Consider alternatives & do your research before spending your dollars....
