i was reading thru the owners manual and noticed that the MDX MUST be towed on a flatbed. towing it with a tow truck can damage the 4wd system.

hopefully we'll never need to be towed, but if we do... don't forget this!

GO EAGLES!!!

One exception...

You may tow the MDX behind a motor home with all 4 wheels on the ground. :4:

You may not tow the MDX with 2 wheels off the ground, and that's why you need the flatbed tow truck - it's to avoid transmission damage.

really? has anyone had their MDX towed? does this mean Acura TLC will send out a flatbed truck to carry your MDX when necessary? i wonder how do you tell services like AAA that you need to request a flatbed truck instead of a regular tow truck.

Henry,

Whenever you call for a TOW truck, just request a flatbed tow truck. If you request flat bed, normally you will get it.

thanks JTM, didn't know i can request for one. good info to know, will definitely pass it on to my wife. the only time i've had a car on a tow truck was when i had a flat on my old integra, and then i found the spare tire was flat too. :1pat:

This thread, reminded me of this thread

Don't rely on Acura to get it right.. notify anyone who may drive your MDX.

Rail, that thread was almost 2 years ago and only 3 posts long. You have a very good memory.:29:

Hey Rail,

Thanks for the thread link. OMG what a bunch of ignoramuses. How could you not stop to think HMM it looks like a truck, it's probably 4WD. One word: DUMBA$$

SIGH such scenarios always put this image in my head. You walk into a bakery and you ask the baker for some bread and he says "I dunno how to make bread". Isn't that your profession? Either get another job, or a life, or both. ARG! :3:

I think I would almost kill the tow guy if he ever did this to me. Just out of principle. :cool:
