Just had my MDX serviced. The dealer gave me a 2017 TLX. This 9 speed transmission is smoother and more refined than my 2016 9 speed. What the heck did they do to it?
My shifts to reverse are smooth. But if I am driving slowly, the shift from 1st to 2nd or may be it is from 2nd to 3rd can be quite harsh. It really bangs in hard! Only happens once in a while. I have lots of warranty left so not a concern at all. The 2017 TLX 9 speed I had as a loaner did not exhibit any of this behavior.Im not sure if i can say the same, I have a 2017 MDX tech awd with 400miles , today i am experiencing transmission problem. While shifting into reverse the car bangs into gear like your getting hit. Im not sure if its a software update or a problem with the transmission. On Tuesday its going back to the dealer for a inspection. mostly get a transmission replaced on my brand new mdx.
I previously owned a 2015 TLX with the Dual clutch transmission, when i first got that omg it was so bad until they did a software update and it ran smoothly after that. Way better transmission then the 9speed build by ZF
