  1. Cargo Cover Rattle/Give Up?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Haha... I think you are right. But I did do that every time when I reattach the clamps. Silly me.....
  2. Cargo Cover Rattle/Give Up?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Interesting, mine is the back part rattles. You can see some white dust left on the inside of the hatch (the cover rub against the hatch). Regarding to the seat back portions, try to spread the 2 plastic clamps apart as far as you can before attaching to the head rest. This should eliminate the...
  3. Cargo Cover Rattle/Give Up?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    My 2017 does the same thing. Mine was dealer installed. It rattles like crazy. I just ignore it because nothing seems can help. After a year or so, it seems that the rattle is gone. I almost forgot until reading your post. I am not sure if I am being conditioned or the rattle actually is gone...
  4. MDX Bumper Garnish Upgrade

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Thanks for the added info. Yea, mine is also white (I think it's called White Diamond Pearl). Do you mean that the pre-painted panels are in pearl white color just like it on the car? And are they OEM Acura parts? If so, I am all for this route rathan than having the black parts painted. The old...
  5. MDX Bumper Garnish Upgrade

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Guys, do you think it is cheaper if we can find a local body shop to paint the black portions including the side rocker panels?
  6. Added aluminum pedals

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Can you share where to buy and the installation tips? Thanks!
  7. Official: 2018 Acura MDX Press Release

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    That's good to know. $1k seems reasonable for the upgrade.
  8. One touch 2nd row seats not working probably

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Updates to my seat button problem. Apparently, I kind of confirm that the armrest indeed is blocking the seats from sliding forward. I finally took my car in the past Saturday. But it was so weird that the driver side seats worked (the first time) when I tried to show it to my service adviser...

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I didn't have a chance to take my car in yet. My car finally reach 20% oil life. Will take the car in when due for the first oil change. I think Acura will take care of it.
  10. Leased a New 2017 MDX and dealer told me I need to pay to have last Navi Map

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I wonder how does the system know that the same DVD has been used by another vehicle. Can anyone explain how does it work? I had used an upgrade disc on my '06 MDX before. But that DVD stayed inside the car. But in this case, the disc data are installed on the HDD. The disc becomes useless...
  11. Leased a New 2017 MDX and dealer told me I need to pay to have last Navi Map

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I see. My 2017 MDX was built Dec 2016. Do I assume that it has the up-to-date maps? How to check the version? Thanks!
  12. Multiple misfires in all cylinders

    First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    I got a '06 too. Had the same issue. Just did the valve adjustment thru Acura dealer yesterday. The car now drives like "new". It is a worthy investment even for $580 after coupon.
  13. Leased a New 2017 MDX and dealer told me I need to pay to have last Navi Map

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Correct me if I am wrong. I thought the 2017 MDX uses a flash base Storage. So the Maps are stored in the HDD.
  14. 2017 MDX lower bumper trims painted or not

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Canadian has the lower bumper painted on the Elite model. Please see this link 2017 Acura MDX Overview I think it looks much better than ours "black" bumper.
  15. 2017 MDX lower bumper trims painted or not

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Guys, just want to clarify whether or not your MDX has a painted bumper trims and side rocker panels. I think the US version is "black" on all model grades. The Canadian version is painted on the Elite model. Am I right? Have you thought of having yours painted with the same body color? Thanks!
