Acura MDX - A Brief History
The Acura MDX ("Multi-Dimensional luXury") was the first crossover SUV to have third-row seating. It is related to the Honda Odyssey and Honda Pilot. It was introduced in late 2000 as a 2001 model, replacing the slow-selling U.S.-only SLX. Arriving at a time when most luxury SUVs still featured body-on-frame construction, the mid-size MDX bettered other car-based luxury SUVs by offering a standard third row of seats that folded neatly into the cargo floor. The original Acura MDX became a favorite among families looking for a comfortable and upscale seven-passenger vehicle. The MDX has become one of Acura’s most popular vehicles because it is sized just right for most families. It is sporty and luxurious enough to satisfy the discriminating buyer.

Acura MDX Transmission Concerns:

The 2001 and 2002 models use a 5-speed automatic transmission which suffered a significant number of transmission problems that were similar to the problems with the Acura CL and TL. However, they did not get the benefit of the free extended warranty that the Acura CL and TL received. A+ Japanese Auto Repair has serviced, repaired, and even replaced many transmissions in the Acura MDX due to failures.
