problem #1

Jul 152007

MDX 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles
2001 Acura MDX vibrations lead to dealer/ manufacturer to Focus on other components then the true issue. Were different finds stated to divert attention of know problems, to minimize financial and reputation" (lemon laws or poor design run around") I'm not the primary driver and then when I drove it (my wife is the primary driver), same problems were felt and it only had dealer service since purchasing it in 2001. I investigated the noise myself on 7/15 /2007 and noticed the motor mounts were broke. How long were they like this, who knows, but a noticeable engine vibration is gone after I pointed this out to the dealer/ manufacturer and had it repaired. I asked for reimbursement for the motor mounts from the manufacturer since it is a documented problem. The manufacture, Acura/ Honda, would not reimburse due to the age and mileage. I paid for the replacement of the motor mounts. A vibration was occurring around 30 - 40 mph, dealers/ manufacturer state it was a egr valve not allowing transmission to shift smoothly, and it was due to running below grade gas. Premium has and was ran, yet the transmission was 1.5 quarts low of transmission fluid, where is it going" is it heating up and pushing back through the egr valve in gaseous state and then cooling, clogging the intake, thence effecting the shifting? there is known issues with the transmissions and the dealer/ manufacturer should replace it and step up to the know issue. Lastly, the sway bar has been lose and I've been told it was the A/C compressor to a strut. I got under the vehicle and was able to identify it the first time. Is the manufacturer hiding know issues on these items stated above"
