    I bought a 2006 MDX with 130,000 miles a few years ago for my vacation house vehicle. Considering giving it to my daughter. There is no evidence of the timing belt ever being replaced and the compressor just went out. I can't do the repairs myself. It would be fixed in the Austin area. Estimate...

    I have a 2006 Touring I bought a couple of years ago with 130,000 miles. Began to wonder about the timing belt. It was one owner who based on the CarFax did an outstanding job with all maintenance, 100% done by dealers. At 108,000 miles 6 years ago, a dealer reported doing all the required...

    I recently posted at thread but I think I may not have posted it in the right place so I apologize for the repeat post.
