is there anything specific to this truck i should be looking for? rust or leaks? what im trying to say is... is there any "common issues" with these trucks? kinda like a recall or something. i just wanna make sure i dont buy something im gonna have to put a arm n a leg into just for fixing it up...
Just avoid the 2001-2002 years, which had transmission problems. Other than that, it's very reliable, with no common problems to be concerned about.
Of course, you need to do the usual due diligence you would do with any used car - inspecting it closely in person, etc. If it comes with a warranty (either the remainder of the new-car warranty, or a CPO certified pre-owned car), you will have some assurance that any mechanical problems you experience immediately will be taken care of. But you really shouldn't have any.
any advice on mods and what I should do to the truck.. I def am gonna put a nice alarm along with an autostart 2 way pager, and a nice audio system...
Get the car first, and see how you like it. You may have totally different ideas about what (if anything) to change, once you try it out.
Also, beware, aftermarket alarm systems can be a PITA.
But just an FYI, neither of those has the Tech package. Easiest way to tell if it's not mentioned in the listing is to look for the Nav screen in the photos.
Actually, the easiest way to tell is from the VIN. The VIN on the base model starts with 2HNYD282 while the higher-level models don't:
2HNYD282 = Base
2HNYD283 = Tech
2HNYD284 = Tech/Ent
2HNYD285 = Sport (Includes Tech)
2HNYD286 = Tech w/ PTG (Starts 3-4/08+ Production
2HNYD288 = Sport/Ent
how are the stock sound systems on these mdx's? And the handling as in taking turns and what not.
Excellent. You really need to go to a dealer and take one for a test drive.
Wonder what my '11 tech with 8,000 miles will bring?
