Timing belt, water pump, spark plugs are your next expense.
Wheel bearings out- road noise and little floor vibration. Most noticeable around 40mph.
You can send your dvd unit to Alpine in Torrance, CA.

Just curious, how could one tell if the wheel bearings are going out? Steering vibrations?

Generally you'll hear loud humming sounds throughout your cabin as you drive. You can also pinpoint which side it is if you take a turn hard to get pressure off one side of wheel. Example, if you jerk/steer hard to left (taking pressure off left wheel) while driving..say..30mph or so...and sound temporarily goes away then your bad bearing is on your left. Another is putting it up on lift and spin the wheel. You'll hear grinding sound if it's bad. While spinning wheel you can also put fingers on the suspension spring to feel for a vibration.

please test at your own risk!

Luckily the dealer did the timing belt before the car was listed so we bought it with essentially zero miles on the TB.

Planning on sending it out to Alpine in the future.

I am assuming they showed proof of when they changed the timing belt.

Oh yes, I have the paper work. Plus this was a legitimate dealer in Florida (Courtesy Acura) and my friend works as a technician there.

My 07 Sport has reach 128800 miles last weekend before I've trade it in for 2014 GX460. Its has been a good running machine with minimum issues. Didn't like the new styling of the new MDX and I wanted to test out the water on the other sides to see if its better or worst. Hopefully I will be back again when my GX460 rack up enough miles in the next 5 ~ 7 years and by then a new/improve MDX will be out.

Congrats to you and I'll see you in GX forum for the next few years.

I am a member of some auto forum, where Acura/Honda's are always been bashed for poor transmissions. However, I do believe our transmission is not that bad. I want to show them the evidence, but I cannot because my 07 has only about 52k on it. Therefore, I need you guys' help. If you have a 2nd gen MDX with 5+ years and/or high mileage, would you please let us know your model year number, mileage and any major transmission problems if any? So that I can forward this link later. TIA.

Hey, My 2nd Gen was purchased new in 2007 which is a year one of 2nd Gen. I just sold it two weeks ago after 7 long years and 128,xxx miles. Cars has been service by dealer and transmission is running strong just like when I first bought it. I never had issue with my Honda/Acura Transmission but it maybe due to the driving style and local geography. I'm in sunny SoCal.
