I have a 2001 mdx with 202,000 miles. The tranny just started to slip in D5 in low gears, especially going up hills. I'm just now reading about transmission recalls. I'm the originial owner and have had the vehicle serviced at the acura dealer for the life of the car. Do i have a chance of getting this corrected at the dealer under the recall bulletin.

Just had mine replaced at 165,000 miles. Apparently 2000 to 2003 Hondas, as well as other Japanese manufacturers, all had problems with transmissions. I am the original owner and I never heard about recalls either. Best of luck.

I purchased a 2002 MDX last week. It has been serviced by Acura until now. It was incredibly cold the last couple of days here in CNY. I found that I have next to no heat...they say that I need a new radiator! So now I see that my new baby also has transmission problems? Should I cut my losses, put the radiator in and sell the thing? I will lose money, of course, but don't want to fear the tranny next!!!
