The radiator was leaking coolant onto the floor. The radiator was replaced. Windshield wipers come on randomly when the wipers are turned off. Happens once or twice a month.

The door jambs are thoroughly wiped dry but the lock mechanism does not open from inside or outside the car. Dealer said that is risk of washing car in winter. Problem occurred multiple times. Our MDX was not reliable and neither the dealer or manufacturer was willing to trade us into another MDX at a reasonable price. The MDX was picked up from the Acura service department, driven to another dealer and traded in on a (hopefully) reliable car.

Noise under hood. Replaced the AC tensioner pulley but this didn't stop the noise. Saw oil coming from the ac high pressure relief valve, had to order one. Took half a day to replace the valve. But the noise recurred the same day after I test drove it to get it hot, and then the ac "dumped" its refrigerent in front of the tech. A possible plugged ac line or condenser was suspected.  Determined that it wasn't a plugged line but simply a faulty relay at the compressor causing the pressure to build up. The noise has not recurred. Replaced idler or tensioner pulley. Same repair done less than 12 mod. ago so dealer did not charge anything.
