Acura MDX Engine Oil Life Reset 

Sharing its basic structure with the Honda Pilot, the seven-passenger MDX has always been one of our Top Rated SUVs. We like its strong powertrain and standard all-wheel drive. The ride is firm but composed. Handling is capable but can get a bit twitchy in emergency maneuvers, even with the standard stability control that arrived with the 2003 model. Well appointed and mostly quiet, the spacious cabin has easy to use controls. Road noise is somewhat noticeable. While the split third-row seat is rather tight for adults, it does fold flat into the floor to expand the Acura’s large cargo capacity. Power output of the V6 increased to 265 hp for 2003. 
 Well-rounded and highly desirable, this generation of the seven-seat Acura MDX consistently outscored European luxury SUVs that cost thousands of dollars more. We like the MDX’s refined powertrain, quick acceleration, responsive handling, and controlled ride, but road noise is louder than we’d like. Stability control was standard. The 3.7-liter V6 belts out plenty of power, but fuel economy is nothing special. Interior fit and finish are impressive and the first two rows of seats are very comfortable. However, the third-row seat is tight for anyone but kids. Look for an MDX with the optional rearview camera; it became standard in later years. The dashboard’s array of buttons can also be daunting at first. The Acura’s five-speed automatic transmission was upgraded to a six-speed for 2010. Ahead for their time, top-trim Advance models have standard blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning.

Acura Legend Engine Oil Life Reset 

The Acura Legend is a mid-size luxury/executive car manufactured by Honda. It was sold in the U.S., Canada, and parts of China under Honda’s luxury brand, Acura, from 1985 to 1995, as both a sedan, which was classified as a full-size car, and a coupe, which was classified as a mid-size car. It was the first flagship sedan sold under the Acura nameplate, until being renamed in 1996 as the Acura 3.5RL. The 3.5RL was the North American version of the KA9 series Honda Legend.

The opportunity for Japanese manufacturers to export more expensive models had arisen with the 1980s voluntary export restraints, negotiated by the Japanese government and U.S. trade representatives, restricting mainstream car sales. The initial success of the Legend and Honda’s Acura division in competing against established European and American luxury manufacturers would lead to Toyota and Nissan creating the Lexus and Infiniti brands, respectively, to compete in the luxury car market.
