Is your MDX mileage got worse after the Software Update? Please specify your MPG:

My mpg is slightly worse after the update. I get about 13-14 all start/stop city driving and 24-25mpg on the highway cruising 70-75mpg. This is a 2009 and I assume you are refering to the transmission shift setpoints.

can't say i've had any discernable drop. been getting about 16mpg at 23mph avg...on winter fuel. have not taken any road trips to determine if my hwy only mPGs will be impacted.

I've also noticed my MPG is only around 14 city driving.

It may or may not be a factor, but one thing I've noticed, and it drives me crazy, 5th gear is almost never engaging. Most roads where I live are 35 MPH, which I usually drive 40. I am constantly having to flip to manual to get my MDX into 5th. It won't flip until approximately 38 MPH. Drove for a week like this and picked up 1 MPG.

Mine has dropped too but it could be the winter blend fuel. Even highway mileage has been affected.

The mileage definitely got worse, but huge improvement in drivability
