I looked at a 2001 MDX from Canada that was for sale. The only difference between a US MDX I could see was that the climate control temperature setting was in Celsius in stead of Fahrenheit. Is that the only difference? Can the climate control temperature setting be change from Celsius to Fahrenheit? How much would it cost?

Thanks,

The temperature reading can be changed easily by pressing the TRIP button and holding it for 5 seconds. It works vice versa. It's a built-in feature.

One difference between models is that the speedometer has kilometers-per-hour displayed prominantly, with the MPH subordinated to them. Also, the odometer is in km's.

On the plus side, you get the block heater and rear mud flaps inluded,...

Of course, forget about the NAV if you buy a Canadian model...

I think he biggest issue, though,is the voided warranty. You could always get an after-market warranty, but I'm not sure how good the coverage would be.

temp display

I bought one of those Canadian MDX's in Mass. It is a green 2002 and we love it (well, when I get a chance to drive it anyway). It was from Lundgren Motors (on Rt 20 in Auburn) and they gave me a warranty from their main Honda dealership that the sales person said was the same as if you got it from Acura - but you never know.

I too have a question about changing the temp from C to F. The main temp that shows on the NAV display is in F, but the little temp reading that you use to adjust the temperature is in C. I read your post and thought it fixed that problem, but it only changes the temp reading on the NAV display. Any idea how to change the other location??

Thanks, Tom

I'm afraid your're stuck with the Celcius readout on the climate control gauge. For whatever reason, changing the display from C to F on the Nav/Trip Computer screen has no effect on the climate control gauge. I think Acura overlooked this. I re-read the manual and it is silent on how (if) you can change the climate control gauge reading....

The good news is that you'll probably have it set at 20 C (=68 F) most of the time. Here are some ranges you might find useful:

15 C = 60 F (to cool the car down when it's hot)
30 C = 86 F (to warm it up when it's cold)
