My dealer (honda) tried to charge me when I took my MDX in for updates a couple weeks ago. They didn’t but they said they might in the future. I’m taking mine on Thursday to have the driver side rear door aligned the top door line is sticking out drivers door is too but it’s not as bad.
Hello everyone. Purchased my mdx 2016 with 26k on it like 6 months ago. Carfax indicates that all rotors and brake pads were replaced just before I got it. Currently it’s on 30k. Was at dealership today for transmission issues. They replaced fluids and did software update. Was also recommended with next oil change replace break pads. They must be kidding me. Paperwork they gave me states I have 4 mm left in front. What would u recommend?
I would think when you purchased the car from the dealer they did only an inspection and found that they were within spec. If they did replace them they probably used cheap or aftermarket pads which wear very quickly. I have always used Honda brake pads they last twice as long as aftermarket pads. They are very easy to replace and you could do it yourself and save a lot of money
Not going to lie, I been doing brakes for 20 years... it was easier when I was younger.. now I find that it takes me double the time.. my kids only 3.. i can't wait for him to turn 8-10 and start handing me tools..
now i have herniated disk & other problems... talk about being out of shape.. used to work through winter changing brakes.. now I need a blanket to keep me warm in winter... lol
Anyone find good source of aftermarket brakes.. I order powerslots from amazon during prime day.. power slots much have some issue.. they keep delay shipping.. if it wasn't for the 30% off, I cancel it.
I'm a big believer in Acura pads, they are cleaner than the ceramics I can get at AutoAdvanceOreilly, but I like the akebonos pretty good too. The wagner ceramics always make too much dust even when I get the low dust version, so I am getting Acura/honda from now on.
I just talked to a co-worker yesterday who had to true up his powerslots (drilled slotted), and he found a shop to do it. The brake shop said you just had to cut them much slower than regular rotors bcs they will get hot spots if you resurface them to fast. That is the only reason I haven't gone to Power Stop I didn't think you could resurface them.
I'm in the process of buying a set of snow tires (4) and dedicated steel rims. I'm also going to buy new TPMS sensors for the winter tire/wheel package.
I checked with my local Acura dealer parts dept. for a price per sensor and was quoted $67.17 each.
(Btw, I have a 2015 MDX with...
Don't know if any of you had this problem. I know some of the people on last gen had similar issue.
Basically, when I start my MDX, the steering wheel would move down and out a little bit but won't go to it's memorized position for either driver. But if I push the driver 1 or 2 button...
My 14 MDX makes a shuddering noise under light acceleration, most often between 30 and 40 mph. I found a thread on this forum explaining something similar and a video on YouTube which is an exact example of what is happening (albeit on a 2004 Pilot.) The forum won't let me link them though...
All the lights in my 2016 MDX SH-AWD suddenly lit up, all wheel system problem, brake system prblem, VSA system, emissions system, hill assist, etc etc. Car is still running normally. All the maintenances are up to date. What is going on here?
