Love the MDX, it is very comfortable on the highway. We are averaging around 21 mpg in mixed driving. We bought ours used and have had a problem with the driver's side mirror rotating down in reverse, then not coming back up to the correct position. Also, after driving a Lexus RX300 the steering in this SUV makes the SUV feel heavy, not as nimble as the RX300.
Love the tech package and XM radio, comfortable seats, room for extra passengers for a short distance.
Heavy feeling steering, makes the SUV feel heavier than it looks. Driver's side mirror doesn't work right after reseting all options for it. Don't like to have to use premium gas.
After a long exhaustive search for a luxury SUV which was not too big and not too small, we found the MDX. We purchased our 2007 MDX used but in like new condition. Could not be happier with the performance, style and overall handling of this vehicle. This performance vehicle is quick, agile, easy to drive and stylish all in one package.
GPS, auto climate control, sound system, and the handling in snow is awesome.
Extended warranty on powertrain to 100k, ability to update the Navigation system mapping and improve the overall gas mileage.
This is our second Acura (first was a 2005 TL) and I purchased the MDX for my wife because we needed more room for a growing family. It’s been two years and it still turns heads on the road (even mine after I park it) because the styling is simple, yet screams “I have 300 hp under this hood”. Overall, you cannot go wrong with the Acura brand from a prestige, reliability and value standpoint. The MDX is upscale and it’s easy to scoff at BMW or Mercedes because of the superb value of the MDX. Acura has simple options and doesn’t hold you hostage with multiple ‘option packages’ in order to get what you want.
Power and the engine ‘growl’ is nice. The xenon headlights and LED rear lights are awesome. They are extremely bright (especially with fog lights on) and everyone knows you are coming. The aggressive exterior styling is eye-catching. The navigation system is easy to use.
Gas mileage, ELS radio is not the best, leather quality could be better, fit and finish issues, no ipod connection.
I bought a new MDX in 02 and was very happy with it. The few things I didn't like were resolved in the 07 redesign. For a sport ute I'm happy with the ride quality, reduced road noise, seat comfort, power and handling. At 38 K miles the AC quit but was repaired under warranty. The 1st of 4 Acuras to ever go in the shop for a repair. I don't like the vertical spoke at the bottom of the steering wheel where my hands want to rest on long drives. I think it's a bargain relative to the price of the BMW or Porsche.
Very comfortable front seats. Superb sound system. All driver controls are placed perfectly. Nav system very good and easy to operate. Hands free link works very well.
I think it could use a better looking set of wheels. Put a power source in the console with the aux input. Get rid of the vertical spoke on the steering wheel.
This is the first Japanese SUV we have had in a while. Last SUV's were Yukon XL and Envoy XL. This beats them out by far. Performs almost as well as our Mercedes e class but has the utility of our Envoy. We always take this on trips and it is very comfortable. The third row is great for smaller children but not so much for adults. Best SUV so far. No problems within our almost 2 years ownership.
