2002 Acura MDX Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MDX’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MDX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.

The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
