The MDX is a capable blend of SUV, and
family car, with a dash of sports car
thrown in. The exterior styling is

are easy to use. The Touring package
adds the convenience of a remote linked
driver's seat with two memory settings.

Make all windows one touch operatable both up and downward with pinch
protection. In other words, learn from BMW's.
I owned and Explorer, Grand Cherokee
and an X5 before buying this one. It
drives extremely well on and off road,
provides luxury and utility in large
doses and has a great sound system.
There is also the added benefit of
Acura (Honda) quality and I haven't
even had a small rattle yet.
