The honda Odyssey was the first to pair the 10 speed and 3.5L. I believe the honda accord 2.0T uses a 10 speed also but not sure if it is the same 10-speed. The ridgeline, pilot, etc will all convert to 10 speed transmission with the 3.5L combo soon probably. The ZF 9-speed is sort of weak, that transmission was designed for a 8-speed and they kind of crammed the extra gear in there. I think honda went in house because they thought they could do it better than the 9-speed and save on costs/control the software. The ZF 8-speed is good and probably would have been good enough for the MDX but 2 extra gears probably nets .5-1mpg more.Perhaps, but there really isn't any excuse in my opinion for having a transmission fail after 550 miles even if it's a new redesign and/or new engine/transmission combo. That type of thing wouldn't happen with Toyota and never used to happen to Honda (Honda quality is nothing like it once was)
Does Honda have any vehicles that use the 3.5 and 10 speed combo? Or only the turbo 4 like the rdx?
