Good Morning All:

Looking at updating from wife's current 2011 MDX to a 2014 MDX (different color and lower mileage). Does the 2014 gen-3 engine have the same "acceptable use" oil use issue of the 2011? It's a well know issue which Acura says is OK in the second gen engines.

Any input is much appreciated.

So far, I haven't seen many reports of oil loss. I've seen a few that were thought to be oil losses, but turned out to be something else. Overall, it doesn't look to be an issue yet, but we're a small sample size here, so I can't really be sure.

I have a 2012 MDX with 50,000 miles and have never needed to add oil between changes which I do myself. The past oil change, I had close to 7,000 miles with the minder at 15% and it may have been down 1/4 quart on the dip stick.
