  1. Goodyear Fortera HL vs Silent Armor

    General Discussions
    Silent Armor's are great I just put the Silent Armor's on my '01 X. I got about 66,000 miles out of the Cross Terrains. I could have got another 3-5K out of them, but have an upcoming road trip and did not want to risk it. My first impression of the Goodyear's is that they are QUIET compared...
  2. EGR Valve Problem: Do you have one?

    Problems
    My experience I had mine replaced at about 55K on my '01. I asked about warranty coverage and my dealer told me it was not part of the emissions system but that they would cover it under the extended coverage on the power train. I don't have an extended warranty so I don't know what the...
  3. Broken Rear AC. Grrr...

    Problems
    Rear AC fixed I finally took my '01 MDX in this morning to have the rear AC fixed. The problem was the transistor. Based on some earlier posts, I thought my blower might be bad, but that was not the case. My dealer is Mac Churchill in Fort Worth. I am about 6K miles out of warranty and...
  4. Broken Rear AC. Grrr...

    Problems
    Question Quick question of clarification - If there is power for the Rear Control light on the main panel up front, the transistor is OK? I haven't taken mine in yet and want to make sure they have the correct part before leaving it there. My light does work so based on the info here I...
  5. Broken Rear AC. Grrr...

    Problems
    Mine went out last week while on vacation. Talked to a service guy in Huntsville AL while passing thru and he said it was probably the transistor. Said they had done several lately and he was out of them and the part was on national backorder. Must be a trend... Bummer is that I am 5k out of...

    Audio & Electronics
    Is keyword search in the update? A quick question for those who have the new update. In another thread 'Dick at Incline' posted the following how-to for easily finding places: From the Map page, Press "Menu" Select: Places Select: Category Then select the Category you want, Hotel/Motel...
  7. Navigation DVD Update avail November 17, 2003

    Audio & Electronics
    Updated POI and Search? Are there any new search options for the POI? I assume if the keyword search has been added someone would have already mentioned it. I was sure hoping that would be there in the update. The current search is worthless. I live in the DFW area and when I enter...

    Re: Re: My Navi did weird things too! No, I have an '01 MBP and was at the airport around 7pm. I was going from Southlake to the airport and back. I usually don't need the Navi to get from SL to DFW!! I only had it on to try to find a shortcut to Airline Drive and avoid the traffic on...

    My Navi did weird things too! How weird! I am also in the DFW area and was out last night picking up my mom at the airport. I also noticed the Navi doing a couple of weird things and I was getting 3 green bars the whole time. The Acura symbol was pointed the wrong way several times and it...
  10. Seat Rail TSB - Acura wont fix

    Problems
    Local dealer fixed mine I took my 'X into my dealer (Mac Churchhill in Fort Worth) and complained about the seat shifting slightly during turns. He said there was a TSB and they replaced the rails. They provided a loaner for the two days while waiting on parts. Wade

    Your experience
    Good experience at Mac Churchhill in FW I bought my 'X at Mac Churchhill in Fort Worth. I worked with Jack Pace and it was a very pleasant experience. Wade
  12. Navigation Screen Shifting

    Problems
    I had the same problem I had the same problem about 6 months after getting my '01 X. It would shift like you described or the image would "bleed" on the screen - actually looked like the image had turned to liquid and was running down the screen! Very weird... Dealer replaced the screen...
  13. Roof top carriers question

    Accessories
    Thule Excursion I live in the DFW area and got the box at Mariner Sails in Dallas. I found them by doing the 'dealer locator' option on www.thule.com. I won't be putting it back on for a couple of weeks but when I do I will post a couple of pics. I didn't need any extra hardware to mount it...
  14. Roof top carriers question

    Accessories
    Thule Excursion I just got the Thule Excursion a couple of weeks ago. I paid about $250.00 for it. I did have to drill two additional holes in it to fit the 2001 rack spacing. Since the 2002 racks are closer together you probably wouldn't even have to do that. I chose it because I did not...
