My wife had to have an MDX I put a price limit on her she landed on a MDX. She "needed" third row seating. Its black with black leather and has 100,000 miles. I am not thrilled with the miles but I like it better than any other car she picked out. She is a stay at home Mom we have a 3 year old and a 9 month baby. She turned in a 2011 Camry lease with 38,000 miles on it. I have owned Hondas before and I hope this is just as reliable as they were. I just wanted to say Hi and I have a few questions about it.

Since I do not know much about its history like any used vehicle I want to do a transmission drain and fill. Does this thing have a drain plug on the trans pan? What kind of ATF are you guys using I assume HONDA ATF? Where is the bast place to get it?

Also what happens when you do not run premium in this thing?


Thanks,
Chad

Welcome aboard! :)

The transmission does have both a drain plug and a fill plug. You'll need 3 quarts. Use ONLY Acura ATF-DW1:

FLUID (ATF DW-1) for ACURA |08200-9008A

Wouldn't hurt to grab washers for the fill and drain plugs too.

Fill: 90441-PK4-000 / WASHER, SEALING (24MM)
Drain: 94109-20000 / WASHER, DRAIN PLUG (20MM)

Going by the book, I can only recommend premium fuel, but some others may wish to chime in on that one, YMMV.
