2009 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Having driven the car around town as well as some long trips, I am satisfied with the vehicle. 3rd row seating works fine, albeit not for tall people by any means. Nice pick up. More spacious than I thought from the outside. SH-AWD works great in slick snowy condition. I bought the base pkg, and the sound quality is plenty good. Leather seats are not at par with BMW standards. Bluetooth is somewhat cumbersome (voice recognition only). Can't say enough about the leg and shoulder rooms enough. It is fun to drive, from the SUV perspective. At this price, expected scheduled free maintenance though. Overall one of the best buys in the segment.


Best Features

Front and rear legroom and climate control, peppy pick up, storage, price


Worst Features

Interior build quality (check how BMW does it's leather seats), Simpler Bluetooth, better gas mileage (should be at least 3 mpg more than it currently is). Need at least a simple compass in the base configuration.

2009 Acura MDX SUV Technology Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The MDX is truely a SUV with excellent handling and is fun to drive. I've had the MDX for one month and yet to find anything that requires me to go back to the dealer for. The craftsmanship is something else. I would highly recommend the MDX. I have no regrets with my purchase. My wife and I have driven our new MDX to the coast twice over the past month and it handles so good thru all the twist and turns on highway 1. What a awesome ride. Yet it is still a family SUV. The MDX is the complete package.


Best Features

The sport handling AWD system really gives the MDX a edge over all other Mid size suv's. Also the sound system really rocks. The sound system is so clear at all volumes. What a system.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have Right & Left blind spot sensors.

2009 Acura MDX SUV Sport Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased after looking at all the rest; BMW, Mercedes, Enclave, Audi, Toyota. Sport package took me over the edge to buy. Handling is fantastic. Seating excellent. Controls easy to use. Cost to own seems relatively strong in Edmunds. We will have to wait and see. After two years, this automobile should have 6 speed transmission. Looks like 2010 will finally have one. When I found out it had build parts in Canada, wanted to turn it back in to the dealer!


Best Features

Sport suspension; Bluetooth; Milano leather seating. Rear gate lift is automatic. Sport Wheels; Galactic Grey.


Worst Features

Blind spot fix; easier to use Ipod connection; Wind noise, driver side; Fuel economy; build quality such as rubber gaskets around rear window came out; Engine hood rubber grommets poorly designed, come loose. Hide the windshield wiper blades.

Review

My 2009 MDX with 3500+ miles has been taken to dealer 3 times in the last month. Once I had to get it towed to dealership. First time I was told that they was issue with poor quality Timing belt pulley. So timing belt got shredded. They had to replace them both. They took almost week to replace it. Within a day, 2009 MDX developed issue. This time there was an issue with Catalytic converter. They took another week to replace. Again within two days, "Check emission system" came up again. This time I was told they would have to replace another catalytic converter and also sub converters. This is putting a big question mark on Acura products. Quality?


Best Features

The Navigation system is good. But not sure how long it will work.


Worst Features

It would be good if the quality of Acura products is improved.

Review

I'm excited to finally own an Acura. It's my first glimpse into the luxury world and am not a least bit disappointed. Wish they beefed up the standard features (back-up sensors, power tail, USB cable, etc.). However, I think the overall value and the performance of that sweet V6 makes me not care about much of the other stuff. So far, so good. Life is good.


Best Features

Engine sound and performance. Bucket seats grip everything nicely. Service at an Acura dealership.


Worst Features

Need more definition on the sides of the body. Some things should just be standard.
