I am a 100% Honda factory trained Master technician and Master ASE certified currently working at a Honda dealer for the last 12 years.

Drivers heated seat BACK, bottom still works
Passenger heated seat bottom (passenger side does not have a heated back element)
THAT'S IT EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS!

Some of the questions I have been getting:
Q: Why are you selling your car?
A: Couple of reasons, need more space in the garage family has four cars three of them are mine : )
I hardly drive it anymore and I've owned it for 5 years time for something else....just don't tell my wife.

Q: How loud is the exhaust?
A: It's not loud, louder than stock but not loud. Comptech really did their homework. The sound is unique, deeper and a little throatier than stock.
It is not you typical "tuner" exhaust. Not droney, raspy or sound like a pack of bees coming. You can drive on the highway with no radio on and have a conversation at normal voice levels.

Q: How stiff is the suspension?
A: Handling was greatly improved without sacrificing comfort, its not "slammed" All suspension angles are 100% to factory spec.
Absolutely no uneven tire wear problems, we have taken this car on many weekend vacations its very comfortable.

Q: Do you have all your receipts?
A: I do have a good amount of receipts but not all, I would happily show you the ones I have.
 Doing all the repairs myself  its a little hard to make a legitimate receipt to myself.
Everything I have said I have done can be verified with an inspection.

Q: Is there any rust on the body?
A: There is no rust on the body. It is hard to photograph the small scratches and dings. The paint is very reflective and the pictures usually just show whatever is reflecting off of the paint. The most affected area is the hood and front fenders there is what people refer to as  "peppering" or small rock chips from day to day driving. Even with that said the majority of people do not believe me when I tell them the car is clean....until they see it person and then they are like "wow this car is clean."

2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD

Thu, 15 May 2014 11:57:00 EST

There are certain vehicles on sale today that are affected by what I call 'Camry Syndrome.' Named after Toyota's ubiquitous family hauler, Camry Syndrome affects a fair number of cars and trucks, many of which are exceedingly popular with consumers.
The issue I have with these vehicles is that while they're adequate, they lack ambition. Their looks are clean and reasonably attractive, but they're not particularly stylish, let alone adventuresome or - heaven forbid - polarizing. Their interiors are comfortable and well screwed together, with the sort of popular features that consumers expect at a given price point. Their engines are decently powerful and vocal enough to set the heart very slightly aflutter, yet they're not too thirsty. Their transmissions are invisible and their rides are best described with whatever buzzword synonym Joe Consumer might come up with for "sporty" or "luxurious." In short, they're boring.
In reality, provided they sell well, there's really nothing wrong with automakers building Camry Syndrome vehicles - they're reasonably competent at everything and clearly meet a need. The problem is that I want some aspects of my vehicle to be better than others, because contrast breeds character. I wish someone at Acura felt the way I did when it redesigned this MDX for 2014, because for me, there's so much of this premium crossover that's merely middle of the road.

Honda exec says US market near capacity, could hurt subprime buyers

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:28:00 EST

Is there a point in the US auto industry where companies should start considering the welfare of their customers ahead of selling more cars? American Honda Executive Vice President of Sales John Mendel thinks that level exists, and we may be getting very close to it.
According to Automotive News, Mendel believes that finding more customers in the market could require pursuing subprime buyers and offering longer-term loans. However, he refuses to use those tactics. While selling models this way can improve things briefly, the strategies hurt resale prices and lower vehicle profits over time. The company won't do "stupid things in the short-term that damage the person who bought yesterday," he said to Automotive News. "It's a very, very short-term tactic especially in the subprime area."
American Honda, which combines the Acura and Honda brands, has seen market share decline from 9.7 percent to 9.1 percent through July 2014, according to Automotive News, and Autoblog's By the Numbers stats showed it posted falling sales in five of the seven months with data this year. Though, Mendel claims that was partially because the company focused on retail sales over fleets. The delays of the launches for the Honda Fit and Acura TLX likely didn't help either.

2015 Acura TLX production gets underway in Ohio

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 14:29:00 EST

It's been three months since Acura unveiled the supposedly production-ready TLX sedan at the New York Auto Show, but dealers have yet to receive any units to sell. That's because, as we reported back in April, production of the TLX was pushed back. We're glad to report now, however, that production has commenced at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio.
The Honda facility in Marysville, just south of Columbus, also produces the Accord sedan and coupe for local consumption and export. With over 30 years since its founding, the factory has previously handled production of the Acura TL and RDX as well as the company's Gold Wing motorcycles.
The Marysville Auto Plant is one of many facilities which Honda operates in Ohio. Among the others, you'll also find the East Liberty assembly plant that handles the Acura RDX as well as the Honda Crosstour and CR-V, an engine plant in Anna, a transmission factory in Russells Point, several R&D centers, component manufacturers and a new Performance Manufacturing Center being built to handle the coming NSX sports car in Marysville.
