Got my 2017 MDX with Advance, Entertainment, and Technology. Really liking it. Super quiet, powerful, and fun to drive.


Anybody noticing a rough shift around 4th or 5th gear? It really pulls back ( ie. brief slow down ) pretty regularly at this shift. Just curious.


Thanks.

Actually, under easy acceleration, I notice a very mild knock (you have to really listen for it) as the tranny goes from third to 4th. Under moderate/normal acceleration, it does not happen.

At low speed like in a parking lot, I feel the odd shift that bangs in hard. I am not worried though because I have lots of factory warranty left. Not sure if it is software or mechanical.

There's a video on Youtube which which explains the ZF 9HP 9 Speed Transmission and why the shifts are different from gears 4 to 5 and gears 7 to 8. It has to do with "Dog Clutches". Search for "All about the ZF 9HP 9 Speed Automatic transmission" on YouTube. Video posted by Alex on Autos.
