I came out of an Expedition to buy this SUV and was pleasantly surprised by how much more comfortable the vehicle is than a truck based SUV. The horsepower and performance are up from my previous truck/SUV vehicles, and so is the mileage. Those giving the MDX poor grades for mileage are not comparing it to other SUV choices. I regularly get 22-23 mpg at 70-75 mph on the highway. I chose this SUV for a couple specific reasons: I needed a vehicle that could tow my 23' boat and its trailer, but I wanted a comfortable, economical everyday ride, too. The BMW and Lexus didn't have the tow power, or enough room. The truck based SUV choices didn't have ride & economy.
Sporty, but comfortable ride and handling. Comfortable seats.
It would be nice if the GPS was touch screen rather than iDrive. My portable Garmin is much better for much less money. The rear view camera picture is very dark and hard to see, and gives a very distorted fish eye view.
