Navigation map does not show traffic flow information. It has been determined that the traffic information is now received from HD radio stations. There are no HD radio stations in the area we live. Almost sound like false advertising. Traffic information on my 2016 Acura RDX is received through the XM antenna. Why did Acura choose to change the way traffic information is received?

Memory function, intermittently does not adjust steering wheel to memorized position. Steering wheel stays in the position for exiting the vehicle. This is the fourth visit for the same issue. Dealer unable to duplicate the issue and has stated there is no problem. I contacted Honda Client Relations and Honda refuses to do anything either, even though this is a safety issue.

The 2017 MDX transmission shifts roughly (just like our 2003 MDX 198,000 2nd transmission.) During routine maintenance they did an adjustment, reports wife. Computer she thinks. Fix worked but was temporary. I am very wary of the MDX Transmission. We are snowbirds. 2017 MDX is North, we are South, so no access to records.
