Question Answered: 

The check engine light can be reset with a scan tool. If you haven't checked the codes, you may consider documenting what codes it has before erasing them. You can also disconnect the battery to reset the monitors. Once reset the vehicle will go through multiple drive cycles, and either the check engine light will come on again, or it will find the systems ok and the light will not come on, even when all the monitors are complete.

Question Answered: 

Do you have a brake light on too? If it's just the rear brakes making noise you should be able to drive it in to a repair shop. If you suspect there is another problem you may consider towing it into your Mercedes service center.

Question Answered: 

It's nearly impossible to diagnose such a complicated issue without having the car in the shop. I would recommend taking it to a qualified Honda service center. It's possible that you could have complications with a security system, computer communication or a multitude of things.

Question Answered: 

Burnt smells can come from oil or cleaner burning off on the exhaust or an electrical short. Maybe the seller did some engine cleaning and it's burning off on the exhaust. Since the this vehicle is so new, there may not be data available to RepairPal to support it or it could be an error on their part. I'll pass along your concern for the 2014 Nissan Murano not listed.

Question Answered: 

This 2012 Acura MDX is an all wheel drive vehicle. It would be important to check if the tread depth on the tires is all the same or more than 2/32 different. On AWD vehicles the tire size and tread depth needs to be the same all around or the wheels will spin at different speeds and cause damage and noise. The car should not pull to the right and the alignment report should be clear weather the toe and camber are adjusted into specification or going to cause pulling.
