2007, 2008 Acura MDX Identification by VIN Number

Yesterday I wrote a post on how to identify the various models of the 2001 thru 2006 Acura MDX and the Factory equipment associated with them.

This article is written to assist consumers in the shopping and purchasing of the newer body style MDX which Acura introduced in 2007.

From 2001 thru 2006, the Acura MDX was divided into 2 categories. There was the Acura MDX Premium and the Acura MDX Touring.

Currently, Acura separates the MDX into some additional categories. There is the Acura MDX Base, Acura MDX Technology and the Acura MDX Sport.

Below is the vin chart:

The serial number (VIN) on all 2007 and 2008 Acura MDX units start with 2HNYD

The next 3 numbers after 2HNYD are the critical ones.

2HNYD 282 This is the Acura MDX Base model. This is the entry level.

2HNYD 283 This Acura MDX is the Base model with Technology Package.

2HNYD 284 This Acura MDX is the Base model with Technology Package and RES. ***

2HNYD 285 This entry level Acura MDX Sport model with Technology Package

2HNYD 288 This is the Acura MDX Sport with Technology Package and RES

*** The best value for the amount of Factory goodies is the 284 vin.

Technology Package Mainly refers to the Factory Navigation System and Back-up Camera

RES Refers to Rear Entertainment System or DVD system.

For a list of equipment on the various models of the Acura MDX visit our blog entitled “2007 Acura MDX Equipment Overview”

At Accurate Cars and Automotive, whether buying an Acura MDX from us or somewhere else, we want you to be as familiar with the vehicle as you can. We hope you agree that as a potential MDX owner, this information is helpful to making a purchasing decision that is right for you.
