It's rather ironic that they like to discuss the MDX tranny on the ML board, cuz when a guy posted over there that the transfer case on his '00 ML430 blew, it got deleted soon after I posted a link to it on this board I still have the message i.d. number to prove its former existence. Thus, I would rank the credibility of that board as a "0" on a scale of 1 to 10
I have not seen any MDX's come into our service department with transmission problems since their release. I'm sure that someone somewhere has had a problem but they are few and far between as far as I know. Being in this business I try to keep from bashing other products but I will assure you if I were looking for another SUV other than the MDX, the ML's would not be in the running period.
