Hello. Does anybody know if the 2015 MDX has an Alluminum hood?
If you see hood flutter then yes the hood is made out of aluminum.

The easiest way to tell, take a small magnet and place it on the hood. Did it stick? Then its steel. Did it slide off? Then its aluminum

I've got several vehicles with aluminum hoods. None of them have any hood "flutter" a magnet will tell you if it is aluminum or steel
Hood flutter is common with aluminum hoods in Hondas and Nissans. Our MDX and Rogues does flutter; plus there's a gigantic thread over at the Accord forum for the current gen having hood flutter.
