Excellent SUV... way to go!

2008 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Power Tailgate, Sport Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this 2008 Acura MDX sports new here in state of WA 3 weeks back... drives like dream. I chose it over Lincoln MKX, Mazda CX-9, BMW X5 and Lexus RX 400. MDX is very sporty both in looks & driving with option of comfort mode just by pressing a switch (but you'll be tempted to keep it in sports mode). I drive Audi S4 too & still respect Acura's sporty drive for an SUV. The Acura navigation is very easy to use, bluetooth & handsfree link are nice additions too. Suggested improvements below.
Sport ride, excellent comfort level with potential seating for 7, roomy & very luxurious interiors, navigation, ELS sound system, bluetooth, all the controls on driving wheel. Cornering's great for this size of vehicle, braking is respectable. A great luxury SUV!
The headlight controls, wiper controls, etc., should be illuminated/backlit. Mileage could be better, so far 17.5 MPG in mixed driving. Front lower garnish should be standard, looks great on it.
