2008 MDX sport package

Hello all,

I am looking to buy a 2008 MDX sport package...used

the vehicle has a factory install hitch....would I be ok to tow a 3000lbs travel trailer?

I would like to know if the sports package comes with any upgrade on the suspension, engine cooler or transmission cooler?

let me know...thanks.

and take a look closely to the suspension. It’s costly to repair on the sport model.
Good luck!!fficeffice" />>>

Yes, you should be fine towing that weight.
Check the tow hitch wiring to make sure it works.
2007-2009 all mdx come with trans cooler.
Mountee3 is correct- each suspension can cost you up to $950 installed from dealer.
