I have a 2019 MDX w/Technology package that came with the Remote Start standard. It is really great on those cold mornings - and this past winter we had some really cold days in January and February. I wanted to add a full size spare for my car since it has the can of "flat fix", but according to Acura the spare tire kit is no longer available. I was very disappointed that they are no longer offering this for my car. I have really enjoyed my MDX - I bought it new and so far it has 23,000+ trouble free miles.Welcome! I would suggest going with a full-size spare if yours didn't come with one at all. Depending on your region, a set of steelies w/ Winter tires for the snow. Since you do have a base, I suggest adding a remote start (highly suggest factory) for those cold mornings.
