Hey guys just found this forum and I am hoping that you might help me out. I am looking into buying a 2014 MDX Sh-AWD with the factory tow package and tech package. I am wondering if these rigs have any weak spot or trouble issues. It has 50K but when I checked the carfax it shows that at 33K it had the torque converter replaced and at 34K it had the muffler replaced. This MDX would be our run around to do everything vehicle and I want to get something that isnt going to cause me a bunch of grief. Thanks ahead of time for any feedback you all have

Just was thinking I didnt tell you about me. I am 32 years old. I live in the PNW north of Seattle. I enjoy working on stuff but I am thinking that my next car won't be home mechanic friendly (too much plastic shields and electronics). I have a 2007 Husqvarna TE250 trail bike and do some trail riding on time off. And I work at an Oil Refinery as an Operator.
