Looked at Lexus RX330 and Toyota 4- Runner but Acura won out with best design and ease of use. Mileage has been as expected about 19 mixed use so far, but better than the old 4-Runner with 150HP. Power is excellent. We added rear body-colored wing which makes it look even better. Hard to believe the MDX is still somewhat hard to come by after 5 years on the market. I still own a '91 Legend Coupe and cannot bear the thought of parting with it. Had no problem trading off the 4-Runner, though.
Great acceleration and braking. Very stable, and overall good visibility (unlike Lexus). Wife likes it a lot, too. All the airbags are a definite plus. XM Great, Bluetooth great, sunroof is super. Cool gauges.
