2009 Acura MDX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your MDX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my MDX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Acura MDX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
