Just had our 7,500 mile service, and I
can't praise this vehicle enough. Great
power, looks, comfort, reliability.
Having driven 330 miles through a
serious snow storm on Christmas Eve, I
feel qualified to say that the 4WD
works extremely well. You can buy an X5
with options to match the MDX for
thousands more, and you still won't be
able to do anything about the space
deficit. The extra seats and cargo
space are VERY nice to have. If you
want to be able to say "I drive a BMW",
that's understandable - my wife and I
just bought a 530i. But if you want
value, the MDX is the clear choice.
Reliability/quality, 4WD system, navi
system, engine power, six-disc CD
changer, sound system, seat comfort,
third row seats.
Get rid of the fake interior wood
(either use the real thing or replace
it with some other type of trim)and see
if you can fit a full size spare. My
other thoughts are taken care of in the
