3.8 MDX
 Date: August 08, 2002 14:45
 Submitted by:  Anonymous
 Source: Tustin Acura
 Credibility Rating: 5


I went car shopping yesterday and a salesman named John ****** confirmed that the 2003 MDX will have a 3.8 displacement with 260hp that should be released in October. The MSRP is expected to increase but its still unknown what the final price is.

Note: While there have been rumours and speculation regarding this bump in displacement for the MDX, and it makes sense given the Pilot's recent debut, we still have not received any form of solid confirmation beyond this anecdote, so I've assigned it a "5" on the credibility scale. In fact, I haven't heard anything of this nature for quite a while. We will post more information as soon as we have it. jp
