Transmissions software update and Fluid change

Due to a tech at my Acura dealer takung too long (over 1 hour) to rotate 2 tires (yes you read that right) the service manager asked my wife what could they do. She called me and I reminded her about the TSB that we were out of warranty for. $300 dealer value. We had the fluctuation in rpm's between 10mph and 40mph. It was absolutely awful driving I wanted to get rid of truck. Driving for a few days after service is done there is ZERO judder and rpm fluctuations. Drives like new.
btw my wife didnt go off on the manager and he said that because she was so calm and was not disrespectful to his staff it was his pleasure to offer her a service. Being nice does payoff.

I did the same firmware upgrade on my 11 MDX back in 2014 and it was a big improvement. Finally started to get normal mpgs on the hwy compared to upper teens.

After the update what MPG were you averaging? Mine seem pretty low.

I was getting around 17-18 mpg on the hwy before the firmware upgrade. The speed limit is 75 mph (set cruise at 80 mph), 5000-7500 feet, and can have a lot of downshifting because of inclines. The MDX felt a little smoother with the shifts and less downshifting on inclines after the firmware upgrade. I can see 21-23 mph at 75-80 mph when I can stay in top gear for hours on level ground. City mpgs are about the same at 15-16 mpgs at 100% and 17-18 mpg combined at around 50/50 driving.
