    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I know what I wrote. This is a 'discussion' board. If someone writes something you don't care to read then simply move on rather than criticizing the discussion matter.
  2. Acura Link subscription? Is it worth it?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I've managed to drive my 2014 MDX 65K miles, including several coast to coast trips, for over 6 years 'without' an AcuraLink subscription. I agree with your points and MrGold's point. I suggest you just drive your vehicle and if after awhile you think the AcuraLink is something that would have...

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    The thread is about how much a car costs and thus what one spends. I was just pointing out the difference between the cash/finance/lease costs as illustrated in the link the OP posted - i.e. the thread starter. If you don't like what I wrote go ahead and ignore it.

    It appears pretty clear from the ad posted that Acura makes the most money if one leases, the second most if one finances through them, and the least if one pays cash. But some of us knew that anyway. Some of the true cost of ownership is obfuscated in leases especially and not so much...
  5. Steering wheel wobble at 55 and over. Front wheel out of balance?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    It's most likely a tire balance issue. If it came on suddenly it could be that a balancing weight was thrown from the wheel. Worst case, if their normal balancing doesn't solve it, try doing a lug balance - a balancing with the wheel still on the car. I don't know if Discount Tire does that but...
  6. Vulnerability In Car Keyless Entry Systems

    Or you could get a real viper to put in the car. That might dissuade thieves.
  7. Vulnerability In Car Keyless Entry Systems

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I place the FOB in the same locations in the house every night but have noticed that every now and then, maybe once every few weeks or so, in the middle of the night (and maybe the day), the interior lights on the MDX come on - likely from it thinking the FOB is in close proximity to it to turn...
  8. 2018 MDX GPS Locking Up problems

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    You could try having the dealer switch it out 3 or 4 more times. ...Just kidding - after the first swap out they should've had a clue the unit wasn't the problem.. There's a good chance it's a software problem that'll only resolve with a software update. If you post the software rev of yours...
  9. Emissions System Problem 2014 Acura MDX 105K Miles

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    There are a lot of things that go into the emissions system so no one here can diagnose the issue based on what you posted. I suggest doing what Donn0128 advised. I don't understand what you wrote though because you said it didn't let you drive over 50 miles but then you said that if you keep...
  10. Post oil change drip

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    That's a good point - many times the least experienced/qualified people are put on tire rotations and oil changes with brake jobs maybe a bit above that. This isn't universal but could certainly be the case. I still do my own oil changes and tire rotations - it's easier to do it myself, less...
  11. 2019 Hybrid - Fuel Average display is off?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    When I did my first coast to coast trip in my 2014 MDX (non-hybrid) out of curiosity I paid attention to the mileage by hand calculating it based on the pump and odometer and comparing to the trip meter. The trip meter indicated about 1-2 mpg better than my hand calc, which is what I expected...
  12. Remove Advance running boards / side rails

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I find running boards highly annoying and a detriment and if for some reason the vehicle I bought came with them I'd remove them right away and get rid of them, even if it's to give them away for free or toss them in the trash. All they do is whack the back of my leg, getting my leg dirty in the...

  14. Post oil change drip

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    For the oil filter I access it from the right wheel well and use a Form-A-Funnel to route the draining oil from the filter area to an oil catch pan. This method is easy to use and results in not a drop of oil being spilled in the process and works better than when I've tried to use plastic bags...
  15. Paint Protection Films for 2015 Acura MDX Adv Black/Ebony

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Firstly, all the cool people have Fathom Blue. Secondly, to help you feel better about the cost, I've done multiple coast to coast trips in mine and have plenty of gravel/etc. hits on the hood of my non-filmed MDX. My last couple of SUVs I installed a hood deflector on, which helped...
  16. First comment, New 2019 MDX Tech, questions

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I'm just saying the general consensus on this site from many people who have fog lights on the 3rd gen MDX seems to be they're more decoration than utility. I think the LED lights are good, and light to the sides enough, that I see no need for fog lights and I drive every day in the dark on...
  17. Post oil change drip

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Before seeing Cardude's post I was going to say - the starting point is to not take it to Pep Boys for anything. This s/b a very simple thing for any sensible mechanic (which you might not find at Pep Boys) to resolve. There's really not much to it - it's a matter of first inspecting the area...
  18. 2019 MDX Hybrid Tech - 2018 Tech

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Did you have the dealer service look at this? There have been some complaints posted here regarding the shifting of the 9 sp but also of how software updates have in some cases improved the shifting to a point where it's no longer an annoyance. If you think it's not working well have it looked...
  19. Is this a good price?

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    I second what Elvis wrote. The bottom line - if a dealer is pushing something, as they often do with leasing, it's usually because they stand to make a larger profit. They have teams of people whose entire job is to set up things like lease programs in a way to maximize profits and at the same...
  20. Windshield replaced

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    For the replacement did you take it to an Acura dealership, an Acura sanctioned repair shop, Safelite, or somewhere else?
