The automatic transmission tends to fail more often than in similar models.
A shudder or vibration may develop while driving at speeds between 35 and 40 MPH. Our technicians tell us this condition is commonly caused by a failed automatic transmission torque converter.

2002 Acura MDX Recalls
Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
Honda has recalled 2002 Accord, Odyssey, Acura CL, MDX, and 2003 Honda Pilot, Acura CL, and TL vehicles because the timing belt tensioner pulley, which is mounted on the water pump, may be misaligned and at risk for failure. Dealers will inspect the tensioner pulley and water pump and will replace the pump and timing belt if necessary.
