  1. ATF drain and fill

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Which is why I always say to make sure you check it first.
  2. Swap the Captain's Chairs with a Bench seat in the 2nd row? (2017 MDX Advance)

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I can't imagine any of this being cheap... Acura charged me 800 just to replace a "cracked" seat and that was just the one passenger seat.
  3. 17 mdx. winter set up

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I have had 0 issues with blizzaks in unplowed snow. Plus, all terrain tires are NOT snow tires and would perform considerably worse than even the cheapest snow tires. They are not good at all on ice and aren't made of the same compound that gives snow tires their grip even in the extreme cold.
  4. Tailgate still has room to go up but how?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Mine does the same thing. 2015 Tech
  5. 9 speed transmission confusion/lack of information

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I have driven 2019 RDX and MDX as loaner cars and I absolutely cannot stand the transmissions. I completely agree. The trans in the '14-15 is great. For the most part it's in the gear it needs to be and doesn't have gear hunting issues. I never have lag with kickdowns when I need to quickly...
  6. Vulnerability In Car Keyless Entry Systems

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    1.No 2. Not sure technology wise. You need to have the MDX fob with you. And you can open the door with just the handle as if you didn't have the Viper. You can also perform full functions with either the MDX or Viper FOB.

    Get a viper.
  8. adjusting headlight beam on 3rd Generation MDX

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I didn't even know you could.
  9. Acura Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF DW-1

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Eh, I would definitely get more than 4....
  10. Acura Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF DW-1

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I I'd add that you should check the dip stick first to make sure you were too low or too high.
  11. Post oil change drip

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Definitely check if the old seal is still attached. If you can't do it yourself, take it to an actual mechanic. Do yourself a favor, stop going to pep boys, jiffy lube, or any other 29.99 free car wash-while-you-wait special. Another oil change is unnecessary. Just top off whatever you lose.
  12. Anyone use the oil change coupons at dealership?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    And this is why I'm saying **** it. Thank you very much
  13. Anyone use the oil change coupons at dealership?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I asked and they said Acura only uses full sun. In fact the asterick on the coupon says if you want Mobil 1, it's extra
  14. Anyone use the oil change coupons at dealership?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I always get these coupons and have used them in the past. But if you read the fine print it says limit up to 5 quarts. Wtf does that mean? Do they only pour in 5 quarts regardless of whether it's enough or not? I think this is the last time I do an oil change at Acura and will just do them...
  15. Mobile1 Synthetic Oil Recommendation?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I wish I could to OC with such intervals. MID is at 10% with just a shade under 4k miles
