2012 Acura MDX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. 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.
  • 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. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Acura's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
