Could this be a sign the '18 Hybrid is coming to a dealer near you/me SOON?

Very good question. If they (the dealers) know, they arenít talking. Iíve inquired to several. Corporate refers you back to the dealerships. There is still some 2017 inventory out there. So maybe they are trying to move that first. Some fair discounts on those. Iím holding out for the CarPlay/infotainment upgrade. My wife insists on it. Otherwise, I would have jumped on 2017 deal.

2018 MDX Hybird on order

I saw somewhere that production of the 2018 MDX started on Jan 22, 2018 starting with the San Marino Color. I called my dealer and he said my order has been submitted. I did not get a build date.

So you've been able to place an order? You still can't submit anything online (acura.com) for the 2018 hybrid, and the dealers I have visited are only pushing the remaining 2017's, not even entertaining conversation about 2018's.

Hello, I'm a new member, and I have never before owned an Acura. At the beginning of January I drove several cars to replace a 2016 Subaru Outback and a BMW 750i (E65 that I had for ten years) with a single car, and I decided on the MDX hybrid. My dealer phoned me on January 22 and told me that they had submitted my order for a hybrid Advance, and that they expected delivery in about six weeks.

Called client relations and suggested they come up with a TSB to retroactively program the 2016-18 9 speeds to start in 2nd gear just like they did for the 2019 ones. This is critical to truly fixing the transmission smoothness issues.

Thank you for this post on the transmission TSB. I've not had such a problem with the transmission in my 2018 Sport Hybrid, but I'm going to have the software updated.

Smile Love my 2018 MDX ADV Hybrid

I ordered two of these about that time when you could order them. Both came in at the same time, but one dealer was $3,200 less that the other. I traded in my 2014 MDX Adv 4 WD. This is my sixth MDX since 1970 when they first came out as a 2001 model. The Hybrid is a supper car and never been to the dealer since April when I got it. The gas mileage around town is about 26 MPG. If I drive in the Sport +, it really is like a rocket and zooms like my 1978 Corvette. Even just driving around in NORMAL, it jumps off the line at a stop sign. There is a 1 second delay before it goes, but you get used to it right away. I really love to drive this car every time I go somewhere. I did get 30 MPG and a highway trip. The lowest MPG was about 23 when I drove fast around town.
