Smile The Old-Timers Checking In Thread

If you are an "Old-Timer" how about posting a sentence or two and let us know how it's going with your MDX. Do you still own it? How many miles on the odometer? Have you had to replace the tires and if so at what mileage.

I don't consider myself an "Old-Timer", I'm probably a "Mid-Timer", but really enjoyed some of the input from some of the original members when I first started posting in mid 2002. I suspect there are many of the long time members that log on from time to time but do not post. If that's the case then how is it going old-timer?

Hi everyone. Good thread topic Mr. Eagle!

My 2002 MDX has 30,000 miles and I still love it. Considering trading it in for a 2004 while the mileage is still relatively low and it has decent trade-in value.

My only complaint is that the vehicle is no longer a rarity- there are hundreds of them around here (Seattle)!

BaldEagle I guess I might be considered an old-timer on this message board but a newbie about owning an MDX. I just picked it up on Monday! It only has 200 miles so far.

Good to hear from you again.

Good topic, Bald 1. Waaaaaal, I ain't as spry as I used to be, now that I am in my new rest home, my eyesight is failing, and now I pop Advil BEFORE I play tennis in addition to afterwards.....but as for muh X, it is a lively as a spring chicken in a rooster coop.

Only 26,000 miles (I travel by plane a lot) with nary a problem, 'cept for that crack in the windshield from a flying tumbleweed I got near Lubbock.

Now where DID I put my walker........

hi

had my X since oct,2001.

no major problems after 37,000+ mi.
traveled a lot already with it. From Illinois to Miami. Illinois to Virginia.
Florida to California and never failed me.

i'd still say the navigation is still the best accesory on my X. I could not imagine travelling these amount of mileage without the navigation. It paid me lot already with worry-free driving with my wife during all these travels.

i hope i could keep it for another 5-7 years.

Good thread! Tim & I were just talkin' about old timers the other day!

Been around since 11/29/00 and still goin'...along with the X. Just a hair over 20k on the car (around-town driving, mostly) with no major problems...needs an alignment and balance, tho.

Funny BostonX (from Seattle ) mentions the # of X's on the road. I see far more X's (and Pilots) on the road around here than RX300/330 and ML's.

I guess I qualify, sinced my rank is "traflo". My mahogany is going in for its 33,750 mile oil change this Friday, as well as to try to fix a failed "bun warmer" in the driver's seat. There have been a few problems -- EGR, SRS sensor in the passenger seat, throttle cable bracket "buzz" (fixed it myself) -- but none that weren't taken care of quickly. Goodyears were replaced by Cross-Terrains at 30,700 mi; they weren't to the wear bars yet, but a tad too close for comfort with winter coming up. I'd get another one in a heartbeat, but not before she's at least eight years old -- maybe ten or twelve!

Picked it up in May 2002, have 24.000 miles. Runs better than ever. Michelins look good for at least another 20,000.
Only warranty item was getting the front disks resurfaced at 18K with new pads.
If the 'charm' does not wear off, maybe pick up another in '06 with the promise of a bigger engine. Zoom, zoom, zoom!

Good to hear from you again.
That has got to be the record for this site: Longest time being a member before purchasing an MDX. Congratulations on your new ride.

MDtex, So far on this thread you also are the oldest member (earliest to register octavain), registering here two weeks before TheWorm.

So far also on this thread the member posting that has been inactive the longest, BostonX, last prior posting was on 11/4/03.

Picked my 02 up in August of 02 and only have 13,000 miles on it. No problems expect for the 2 recalls and ticking noise up front which the dealer took care of. Still a pleasure to drive!!!!

I knew I was the "oldest" member without an MDX. I stayed current and active through all that time, reading the threads from A4L, D'mor, Remery, Road Runner, AArdvarkus, and of course The Worm and BaldEagle!

Hi there,

Had my X since April '01 and had the thud, the brake clunk, the dripping mirrors, the cracked windshield, the misaligned glovebox door, the kazoo, the "popping" driver's seat, nav screen blackout, "check engine"/ VTM light on, defective rear defroster (did I forget anything?). No tranny/engine problems. Changed tires at 56k after I had a flat while doing 80mph. Could've gotten just 2 tires but decided to go for a "package deal" from my dealer: all 4 tires (Michelins) plus balancing for $720. Changed rear pads at 65K. So far we put 70K miles on it and still runs and looks great and we love it. In fact we love it so much we got a second one, an '04 Touring/Nav/RES that has been flawless so far (1300 miles).

Happy MDX-ing!

Talking Old timer on the board, I guess....

.....but have owned my '03 MDX since Dec. '02, like one or two others here. Started lurking on this website around November of 2000 and finally registered and started posting in Feb of 2001!

I now have a little over 23,000 miles on my MDX. I must say that I've enjoyed posting, debating and on occasions voicing my contradictory positions on some discussions!! . Other oldtimers will know that my favorite passtime on here is devoted to praising, promoting and telling the world about the greatness of Honda's Navigation System . Besides that, I've found this board very helpful and useful, and most people on here seem to have an open mind to accept differing points of view!!

Hey! It's been a busy year! Moved to Seattle from Boston last April (hence the mystery of being "BostonX" from Seattle). Drove the 'X across country too, what a ride!
Had another kid in October 2002.
Been busy planning and building a house.

I'll try to check in more frequently!
