I have driven the MDX when it first came out; however wasn't in a position to buy due to my enthusiasm with the TL. Coming from a Honda Odyssey, I found it necessary for me to continue to have the space for me and my children while expanding my versatility with it's all-wheel drive capability. Now my third Acura owned, the Acura MDX provides for me the luxury and performance I desire; the necessity of satisfying the soccer and vacation trips, and the comfort of owning a truly reliable vehicle.
I love the hands free link for the cell phone, the third row seat that hides into the floor, the roominess, performance, and appearance.
I think that even though it's got a good rating for gas mileage; it can still improve. Have a power liftgate and give it the capability of opening the back window without opening the gate. Make all the windows automatic one touch power up/down.
