I am still in my first month of my Black/ebony 03 MDX and although enjoying it very much, I am averaging only 13-14mpg during the first 4 fill ups. I am driving a combination of city-short trips and highway. Is this just a low break-in period or are other 03 owners finding the same results? I believe it has little to do with my driving habits since I have owned many new cars and vans and am usually close to the "sticker" numbers. Current owner of a 01 CL type S averaging 20-21MPG with similar city/highway driving as well as past owner of minivans including 94 Quest, 97 Quest, 2000 Grand Caravan. Even those Vans averaged between 16(caravan) and 18mpg for both Quests. Anyone out there with similar results? Is it perhaps the new 03 engine? or new 03 transmission? Just my MDX since I'm sure each MDX is alittle different? By the way, as a 4 time Acura owner - I am still a very happy owner!!
