plug and play. 5 mins max. Used a tiny flat head to pry out the original. Only thing is to make sure the connector pins line up into the socket (had to adjust slightly.
Thanks, Somehow on Amazon it says this is not compatible with 2011 MDX...

Ok product description says it will work but Amazon's My Garage says not compatible, weird.

Feb 2019 - Acura Warranty Extension

We got a letter today from Acura Automobile Division regarding the excessive oil consumption based on oil control rings being clogged with carbon deposits during normal engine operation. I kept the oil from last oil change and I believe we are affected for sure. Going to schedule an appointment to take it in at the end of the month. Looks like we may get covered even though we exceeded the 8 year/125,000 miles by about 3000 miles with the extension, and Acura states any affected vehicles from now (Feb 2019) until September 1, 2019 will be covered regardless of time or mileage

May 2019 update


Dropped off the MDX yesterday to get further inspection and engine rebuild by Acura based on oil consumption test. Will be sure to report anything found. Right now, enjoying a 2019 Acura RDX as a loaner.

First impression, looks awesome and peppy on highway. The touchpad infotainment takes some getting used to and I hate the auto shutoff at stops. I've driven in comfort only, but will try the other modes.

So today, we pick up the MDX from the dealership. I had a teleconference call, so I asked the Mrs to settle up inside. We load up and drive off... We noticed the AC wasn't working and blowing hot air. After I get off my conference call, I review the paper and noticed the tech notated the AC was INOP. We called our Service rep and didn't get a clear answer, so we told her we are coming back. Pulled up and explained the AC was working prior to the repair. The tech ended up finding a loose connector and reconnected for the AC to function again.

Fast forward a few hours, I'm at home and have to run to the post office. I jumped in the MDX, start it up and now I get a CHECK AIRBAG SYSTEM notification 11-11. Not sure why this all of sudden popped on, but it's not going away, ugh. Going to do a little research online, but any tips would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: Check Airbag System is cleared. Yesterday, I looked under the dash and double check the connections. I applied pressure to the plug and it did sink in some more.

June 2019 update

Caught a flat tire last week Friday, so I ended up with 2 new tires and plan on ordering the other 2 this week. I got 3 years and 60K+ miles out of the first set of Cooper tires, was very pleased with them, so I decided to go with them again based on value. Highly recommend the Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus tires for anyone interested in a set of tires.

Also changed the Key FOB batteries in both keys. Pretty straightforward and surprised how dirty the key innards get.
