Questions About 2004 Acura MDX’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? 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 I tow in a Acura MDX? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my MDX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Acura MDX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
