I just got a 2002 MDX last weekend and we are hearing a swoosh stepping on the brakes.

I called several dealers in southern cal and they said that it normal and it the brake booster making the noise.

Anyone else having this problem?

thanks,

Is this something I should be concerned about?

It doesn't sound normal. I haven't heard it this loud on other Acura cars.

So, not all MDXs have this problem?

You might check where the steering column and brake mechanism go through the firewall to the engine compartment through the firewall. Could be the 'gasket' or foam insert is not sealing completely allowing some noise to creep in the passenger compartment.

If it persists, ask to drive another MDX and if much quieter demand yours be fixed.

Just wanted to update everyone.

Went to the dealer and they said it wasn't as loud as others.
They show us other Xs with the same sound. I guess its something we have to live with. We barely can hear it when driving with music. We really love this car so its not going to bother us that much. The service manager was very nice about it and give us free oil change coupons.

Very professional!
