Thanks guys!

FWIW, my local Honda dealer gets me the Acura parts and gives me a discount. We're known there because of our S2000 and Type R. So I'm good with getting the factory part.

Anyone know the difference?

New update. Everything is great. This included multiple drives up and down a very steep and long freeway grade near us, in 100* temp with the AC going. No issues at all.

It sure seems like the...

I have a separate thread on this board about it. I did a leakdown test and did not find anything. So I decided to replace the radiator first and then do a CO2 test. It cost me about $500 in parts...

New update. We did a leak down test. It shows no leak, and pretty even across the board.

My first thought was that the dealer was BS'ing me to get the work. And if I agreed, I'd never know if...

+1 for everything above. I have had K&N on various cars and have found exactly that. Moreover, I know myself. I'm 5x more likely to buy a new dry filter and swap it than I am to deal with the...

Thanks both. To be clear, I have not worked on 60 motors! I have rebuilt engines on cars from the 1960s! Ha!

But, I'm now fully on board to do this. You guys are right.

I figure if I pull...

Help! Should we keep the car going?!

2002 MDX. Original owner. The car has been great, and well loved. It has always been maintained by the dealer, and fixed whenever needed. The only major work since new was a tranny replacement...

We have a 2002 with 250,000 and still going beautifully. One seat seam stitching has come out. Otherwise, the interior looks well below 100k.

I remember cars from the 60s and 70s that looked...

Our 2012 MDX has never had this problem (now with 250,000 miles and still going strong - it's just so dang irreplaceable). However, our '87 Prelude did - when new, it was constantly warping rotors. ...

How Long Does the MDX last?

We are the original owners of our 2002 MDX, now with 220,000 miles on it.
