Review

My MDX is everything I had expected! During the business week, it's perfect for taking colleagues and clients to lunch. On the weekends, it's perfect for hauling my two large labrador retrievers, golf clubs and bicycle! The MDX is definitely a total package.


Favorite Features

Cargo space, versitility with seating, smooth ride, gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Rear window doesn't open

Review

Drives like a car, but like most other SUVs, it's a bit underpowered for the amount of weight it has to haul around.


Favorite Features

Navigation system. Standard 3rd row.


Suggested Improvements

Move moonroof control to ceiling. 30 to 40 more horsepower!

Review

I can't belive i waited 5 months for the vehicle, but it was worth the wait. The standered features are unbelivable. I never thought i would use the navigation system, but it is a lifesaver i don't have to get out and ask for directions.(male thing) After my brother saw my vehicle he went and ordered one to. he only has to wait 3 months.(no fair) Life goes on.

Review

Drives like a sedan. Its roomy and the rear seat folds flat for lots of storage space. Excellent fuel economy so far, averaging about 20 mpg. Outstanding navigation system. Easy to use. Also very good acceleration with the 240 hp engin.


Favorite Features

Navigation and cargo space.

Review

As my "alias" implies I drive a Suburban, while I traded my wife's '98 Discovery in for the new MDX. Although we waited for five months, the vehicle was worth it. It's road mannerisms are more car-like than an SUV but can accommodate more than four people (15 total when adding the Suburban's capacity). All joking aside, as a parent, I am increasingly discouraged by sedan manufactures turning rear seats into "buckets" reducing their effective capacity by one.


Favorite Features

The NAV station (not a toy and a model for all others). Extreme comfort and accommodating size (wife, 5'3", me 6'3", two kids, two dogs and room to stretch).


Suggested Improvements

For the sake of fellow advocates, make them faster...

Review

The best vehicle that I have ever owned. Lots of cargo space. Good fuel mileage and range considering how powerful the engine is. Great AWD system for driving on wet or icy asphalt roads. Excellent turning radius. I like the ride and I find the seats to be comfortable. Can tow up to 4,500 pounds (boat) or 3,500 pounds if any other type of trailer towed, but requires the addition of transmission and power steering fluid coolers.


Favorite Features

AWD,turning radius,buttons on steering wheel,powerful engine,good brakes,cargo space,can be towed behind a motor home with all wheels on the ground,extremely powerful air conditioning system - drove in 111 degree weather in perfect comfort.Smooth transmission.Reliability and durability.NAV.


Suggested Improvements

Moon roof a tad small. We want the NAV in Canada too!!!!

Review

Waited 6 months, had to bring back at 350 & 1500 mls for noisy front end. It appears it's inherent to the X. Wind noise, tail gate slight bend and e-brake doesn't hold without extreme pressure. I'm disappointed with the build quality. It wasn't worth the wait. Make sure to take a good test drive if you can. I do love the look, the interior layout and it does cruise very nice on the highway, but at $44K delivered, knowing what I know now, I don't think I would buy again with these problems.


Favorite Features

Interior, Look, the vechicle has great potential, I like a more quieter ride.


Suggested Improvements

Front end noise, very heavy at slow speed. Rear gate, wind noise.
