2020 Acura MDX Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your MDX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my MDX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2020 MDX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
