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

Review

Buying the MDX felt like an arranged marriage, not true love. For cargo storage, vehicle size, functionality, AWD and price compared to competitors, the MDX is great. But driving...well I don't know who said this is a fun drive. 5-spd tranny feels dated and sluggish to accelerate. Feel disconnected from the road more so than other CUVs. Lacks features like keyless entry/ignition, blind spot monitoring. Leather seems cheap compared to all competitors. Fuel economy disappointing at 14 mpg (80% highway) after 3 tanks. Lacks small touches in design - example is doors feel light and flimsy when closed. Chose MDX over CX-9 for the badge but have been feeling regret since purchase.

Favorite Features

SH-AWD, usable 3rd row, excellent storage, bluetooth, efficient rear climate, aggressive exterior styling.

Suggested Improvements

More standard features like blind spot monitoring, power liftgate, keyless entry, rearview camera. Better placement of latch connectors, update transmission, improve leather, replace fake wood trim with real wood. More seat heat settings.
