2008 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Power Tailgate, Technology Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Compared to Highlander, X5, 09 Pilot, and GM SUVs. MDX was best compromise. Owned a 2002 model that was very reliable.


Best Features

Bluetooth, navigation, interior design, and quality.


Worst Features

No premium fuel and better gas mileage.

2008 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Sport, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Looked at everything out there and the MDX won hands down. Ride is excellent, handling is great, sound system is incredible. Voice activation for almost everything you want to either control or get information on. A little temperamental with recognition of commands but if you're clear then it's OK. Blue tooth is great. Added chrome side steps, body molding and luggage rack. Black on black combination turns alot of heads. Acura doing great financing and going way low on pricing. First time I ever owned an Acura, will definitely consider Acura for other vehicle purchases. Lots of power in engine although premium should probably be used most of time.


Best Features

Blue tooth, voice recognition, real time traffic, satellite radio, sound system, Xenon lamps etc. etc. Just love this vehicle.


Worst Features

If I'm going to get picky, folding mirrors would be great. Access to 3rd row from both sides would be nice although I don't plan to use them that much. Own minivan to haul kids.

Review

Second MDX we have owned. First generation was good but unexciting. New MDX quality matches all of the German competition with Honda reliability. Very solid feel and intuitive electronics. Nav and bluetooth are great. ELS sound system is excellent - especially when surround is turned on.


Best Features

Add keyless start system.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. But if you compare it to other models you can't do much better with the same amount of space.

2008 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great SUV with superior handling, comfort, and overall appearance. Fuel economy is edging toward the v8 area, but considering the size of the mdx, it gets pretty good mileage. Ride is very smooth and the 300 hp gets it up and going quickly. Recommend the mdx to anyone looking into an SUV with the performance and luxury you get with Acura, and the reliability you can expect from Honda.


Best Features

Appearance, engine performance, SHawd, comfort, 2nd row heater seats, 10 spkr acura/ELS surround sound


Worst Features

Push button ignition (that would be sweet), more tire options for the 19" rims, improved remote start ignition.

Review

The car is very comfortable even for a 6'6" guy like myself. The "sit test" eliminated many other models. I've only had it for 2 weeks, but so far, no major complaints. I got 17.3 MPG on the first tank in mostly rush hour traffic which was surprising.


Best Features

Overall, a good car with excellent power and acceleration for a car this size.


Worst Features

The AM radio seems a little muffled compared to FM and the voice recognition feature could be improved.
