2008 Acura MDX ProblemsAutomatic Transmission May Fail
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. It is recommend to replace the torque converter and install an updated powertrain control module (PCM) to correct this concern.

2008 Acura MDX QuestionsSeat and mirror memory not working (2 answers)
Intermittently failed while car was under warranty. Now does not work at all. Dealer conveniently does not have records of me reporting the problem under warranty. In looking at other questions, looks like this is a common problem in 2008.
My MDX use to move the side mirrors down when in reverse gear. Now it does this intermittently.
