With the exception of gas mileage, the new MDX exceeds my expectations - handling on par with best sport sedans, very quiet, rides better than most luxury cars. Build quality very good. Improved overall from an excellent 2001 MDX. Trip computer very inaccurate - overstates mpg by at least 10%. MPG an actual 20.5 for 2000 mile trip, primarily interstate at 70-75 mph. Surround sound system is excellent, perhaps better than my '04 Acura TL.
Handling, particularly on curvy, mountainous roads is superb. Overall quietness and excellent ride. Engine power and smoothness - outstanding. MDX is a great value compared to luxury competition.
Improved gas mileage along with use of lower octane fuel, perforated leather should be standard with Tech package along with auto-dimming mirror and roof rails.
