I am very impressed with the handling and many electronic features of the MDX, but I am somewhat disappointed in some of the interior fit & finish, harshness/loudness of the engine, audio quality, complexity of the navigation system, and the dealer add-ons that should be standard in a $40K+ vehicle.
City and Highway handling, HID headlights are great, the Navigation System concept, rear back-up camera concept, pleasant look of the interior and exterior. The electronic features are first rate, but tend to be quite complicated and I am very technically oriented.
This SUV desperately needs STANDARD back-up sensors. When the back-up camera isn't blinded by sunlight, the camera is very deceptive. When you are parallel parking, the car behind looks 10 ft away, when you are really 1 ft away. The $500+ optional sensors require massive removal of bumper+trim+seats.
