I waited 4 months for my MDX. We got it just before X-mas. Very nice, one sweet ride except... for my front end problems (does the thud count for 2002), my rear tailgate being racked (need to slam hard or sticks up 1/4" on drivers side), very hard starting at times (key fob?), a clunk from park to reverse whenever there is a load on the in park position (please don't tell me my tranny needs to be replaced) and my e-brake doesn't hold. Took 350 miles to find the problems. We were riding high when we picked up the MDX or I would have noticed the tailgate. Been to the dealership for the front end, said they tightened some bolts and hey... thanks for the gouge on my rear bumper. Didn't solve my front end problem, or any others, but I always wanted a scratch. Would you like some touch-up paint... pushing it. Is it me or should Acura be kissing my *** to make things right. Do you need to spend more than 42K to get a quality product??? The MDX is nice, but these are serious problems. We love this MDX, I called Acura, and at 42K the guy on the other end agreed... my butt should be kissed, but sorry not my job. Did set me up an appointment to have my truck looked at. I guess just because it's one of the "supposed" best suvs' it should be trouble free. Can I expect Acura to makes these problems right. Any info that supports these problems to resolve would be great. The dealer plays mickey the dunce, this new to us. I find this web site and almost die when I read about the problems. Good thing it lives in a garage or I'd probably have water trouble too. Please advise, Hench

Thanks

I did call Acura and they seemed concerned. I suppose if they can get the e-brake to hold that would help my tranny problem, our other Hondas' never did it, same incline this is what concerned me. The front end noise is like my old 93 4x4 blazer with a 125K on it, very noisey and loose sounding below 40mph. I'm pretty picky, I restify HD and Cudas', so I've played with alot of suspension systems, but the Acura is nothing like I have had experience with before. I was so concerned about the technology in the car I bought the 7/100K warranty, where would you begin. The technology in this car VTM-4, abs & 5spd with 4.10:1 rear alone... My cudas have 4.10s and I'm lucky if I get 8mpg. We love the X, but we're concerned that we may have a lemon. Too many issues for a hi-end vechicle. Maybe I'm stressing for nothing, they will fix all issues. It's just when the X cost as much as a Masters Degree, but then again, I should be happy I can afford the X. PS: sometimes I need to rant to releive stress, Thanks:rolleyes:
