In Reply to: re MDX transmission by opinonsgalore

I just checked the MDX specs, and you're right, the MDX comes with a 5-speed tranny, which I find kind of surprising. When we test cars, we watch the RPM gauge pretty closely, looking for the engine speed when we're on the freeway and how it changes when we accelerate and decelerate. We get the MDX in on Wednesday, so I'll look for the problems you mentioned, including the downshifting.
