2016 Acura MDX Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my MDX transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Acura MDX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
