2007 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Sport, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Picked up this baby on 10/19/2006. Had returned my Lexus RX 330 lease that same day. Compared to the RX 330, the MDX is 6 inches wider, 4 inches longer, and 2 inches taller. But given the size and weight difference, the MDX is almost as nimble as the RX 330. (It definitely much more nimbler than the Mercedes ML class.) The ride is pretty good, but not in the class of the Lexus. If maximum comfort is what you seek, you can't beat a Lexus. Acuras are very German-like, they are built as performance vehicles first and foremost. Luxury/comfort comes behind. The GPS system and controls takes getting used to. (At least for me, because my RX 330 had touchscreen GPS, the MDX uses a turndial.)
Aggressive styling. Fairly large cargo area. (Wide enough to fit golf bags straight across even at the wheel wells.) Bluetooth phone connectivity. XM Satellite Radio Traffic integrated with GPS.
Go back to touchscreen GPS. Improve the rearview camera. Add the ability to save GPS and HFL settings even without having your remote key linked to driver settings. Add an iPod connector as factory equipment. Make both side mirrors tilt down when in reverse. (It only tilts the 1 side it's set on.)
