Test drove Lexus RX 350, Volvo XC90, Pilot, and 2009 Murano before selecting the MDX. It's the best in class. Great SUV. It runs much better after the initial 500 miles or so. GPM got better too. Some of the accessories should have been made standard (roof rail, side molding). The plastic door handle and the same color plastic on the steering wheel make the interior look cheap. Acura should have made them better and add a few hundred dollars to the based. This is sold by Honda/Acura as a luxury SUV.
Nav, bluetooth, quite but great highway performance. DVD-A quality audio.
1. The plastic on door handle (inside) and steering wheel look cheap. 2. Improve the multi-function display (too many steps to get anywhere). 3. Reduce the wiper noise (the top section). 4. Try a different color wood?
