Congratulations!!!

I know it's been a long search for an MDX and I'm glad you've finally got one...

That being said, we want pictures....

But really, I'm glad you're in another Acura!!!

Also, low voltage will cause H.I.D. and LED bulbs to act up bad... They'll strobe like you said... And I'm not surprised the Nav may be acting up... I don't know, but to me sounds like some voltage interruption...

I wonder if you may need a jump this morning...

Either way, buying a vehicle with a few small issues is always a way to save big money on a vehicle that is really expensive used like an MDX...

Best of luck!!!

In regards to TSB 16-048 - Audio-Navigation System Update for Upper Screen Going Blank , mine 2016 MDX Advance VIN number is higher than the one on this TSB but yet my wife just experienced this while she was driving, the Navigation screen just went black on her, it kept prompting her with directions. This leads me to believe that the VIN number Acura is providing on these TSB is BS, liars!!!. One time also, i was go on a freeway and as i press the gas, all i hear is revolutions and the DAM thing was moving slow. Something is up. Time to make another call to Acura.

I am about to by CPO 2016 MDX. i dont find my VIN# (5FRYD4H41GB04XXX) in range for prime issues like TSB 15-054. Does that mean the this vehicle will not have this issue or was not reported by any owner in that vin range?

From my experience responding to other owners, even if your VIN does not fall in the range, it does not mean it will not be affected. Acura just might not have had many reports in that range, but you could be an outlier. You will also find that TSB revisions over time tend to add more vehicles onto the affected range list. You could try and negotiate some of those TSBs to be done prior to signing the sales agreement.

That's something you need to decide based on your budget and desires. I drive a 16 and I actually have only experienced a few of the issues, the biggest one being the transmission warmer issue. I've also experienced issues that there are TSBs for. To me, it's kind of just part of car ownership. Overall, the MDX hasn't been problematic for me for the last 3 years, but you need to decide what you want to deal with.

Noob qn. How is TSB different from recall? Can I call my dealer and say I want all TSB fixes on my MDX done no matter whether issue is seen or not?

Tsbs are just instructions for technicians to fix known problems. Some tsbs are recalls, but most are not. Tsbs that are recalls are fixed free of charge. Tsbs that are not recalls can fix issues for free if in warranty, but if you do not have warranty anymore, they are not free.

Honda is pretty strict about reimbursement to the dealer for tsbs, so many require proof from the dealer, which is why some dealers don't like to do warranty cases unless you can clearly demonstrate the issue to them. Even then, if their tech cannot produce it too, they will sometimes return your car without fixing it and then tell you to come back later when the issue is more frequent.

So the short answer is no, you cannot just request they complete all the tsbs on your car. You will be to prove you are affected first.

Another note (not trying to derail from these much appreciated threads of TSBs), read the TSB...some indicate an exended warranty that applies to the issue covered by the TSB. For example the ‘14-‘15 TSB for premature transmission fluid degradation indicates it is covered to ~80k miles which is beyond the powertrain warranty. I have not received notice of this extension from Acura.

For our previous car, an RX350, we received mailings with notices about “warranty enhancements” for specific issues that were covered beyond the basic warranty. Each one even included a sticker with details to put on the owners manual jacket.

Considering a '16 MDX SHAWD & Tech. Concerned about the ZF 9 speed transmission. Can anyone comment if the TSBs have corrected the problems and to what degree? Owned Hondas and Acuras for many years as they have been very reliable. That said, like other manufacturers, costs are taken out and I can see decreases in quality. My '11 TL so far has been bulletproof and we have a '13 RDX that has been good but not as solid as the TL. Comments and advice appreciated.

May be best to create a new thread as this one should only be used to distribute the tsbs.

Get the screech on camera and show the service manager. If he declines then complain to the next up person in line. That's the only way to get things done.
