I just recently I drove my MDX with a falcon door open hitting the wall above the garage entrance. The door was damaged and cannot close.
I pulled up just outside the garage to give my passenger room to open this door and remove some boxes from the rear seat. I incorrectly assumed that the passenger who had then exited the rear passenger seat had closed this door. Given the several proximity warning sounds all going off, I did not attend to the sound warning that a door was open nor see the warning on the dash as I routinely pulled into the garage.
I learned from my body shop that at, this location alone, I was one of ~ 10 MDX owners who had hit their falcon door when it was open, seriously damaging the door.
Instead of just a warning, it would be helpful to have an option that an owner could select that would prevent the car from moving, in this situation, before it was put back in Park and then let it move only when it was reset again to Drive or Reverse.
