I don’t have any experience with your exact model, but I do wanna mention something to look out for. My last Honda (2015 accord w/60k miles) and my moms current Honda (2013 CRV) have/had horrendous fuel consumption issues. Granted, both aforementioned vehicles have CVT transmissions, which will likely play into this issue. But, my point is to look into the engine. With Honda’s drive towards efficiency they have tightened up their tolerances on the engines so much that the slightest amount of nastiness in the oil causes the engine to consume it, something about extremely tight cylinder tolerances. Just something to look in to. From what I have seen and read the MDX is a really nice vehicle though.
I agree, but I did change my oil with full synthetic mobil 1 with the best mobil 1 filter every 3-4k miles. Didnt seem to make a difference. My mom gets hers changed every 5k or so with whatevers is cheap/suggested for her car.This is where a quality true synthetic oil like Amsoil really stands out from the crowd. Honda and Ford are late to the party on synthetics instead using blends in their factory labels. I will give Ford some credit though, their gear oils are synthetic and pretty good too.

Is that Vibe engine noisy? I bought one for my now ex, and that thing rattled like a diesel.When i was looking for a larger vehicle for the wife I had in mind NOTHING with a CVT transmission.
Those are not robust enough to go the 300,000 hard miles I need to put on a vehicle.
I have seen many friends that baby their cars with a CVT trans and all have died with 135,000 or less miles.
A TH350 will go 300,000 miles easy behind these weak power plants.
NO reason with today's technology to have a transmission failure with little miles on them.
I got the wife a Pontiac Vibe.
Toyota Matrix same platform as the Vibe and I needed 30 MPG minimum.
And NO V6.
Inline 6 is fine though.
If you do not plan on driving it more than 100,000 miles i would think most anything would last that long.
I have seen failed cams in 5.7 Hemi engines at 65,000 though.
I tend to drive things until the doors fall off then get some replacement doors
or get the welder fired up.
I never trade up to a newer vehicle unless the old one is broken and not fixable
for less than i can get another vehicle for.
I just need to get from point A to point B and back.
