2010 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I am the original owner and bought it in April 2010. The car was awesome to drive at beginning. It had pulling issue and grinding noise at low speed when turning the car right after leaving dealer. Both these issues got TSB from Acura later on. The grinding noise was not fixed since TSB came after warranty expired. After 2 years, the MPG went bad from 1 tank for 300 miles down to 200 miles locally and we need to down shift to passed another car. At 45000 miles or 5 1/2 years, the transmission failed. MPG went back to 300 miles for 1 tank of gas but the transmission is shifting so slow now. I bought it since I love it's performance and handling. My next SUV will be Lexus RX 350 since I bought lexus gs 350 and it changed me. I have been honda acura brand fan for 15 years and it is over now except Formula 1 Honda LoL

Review

My mom bought a 2010 MDX used that I drive occasionally. At first I didn't like it, but once I drove it alone and realized how fast this car is, I dig it! The v6 sounds awesome under heavy throttle and the car takes off! The SH-AWD is great in the snow, and the car handles like a dream. Stereo sounds great. Leather seats are very comfortable. Sport mode with the paddle shifters is a lot of fun, almost like a real manual. Now for the not-so-good.. We had to have a new transmission put in at 25k miles. Acura did it for free, but just be warned.after they fixed it we love the car!


Best Features

Sport mode/paddle shifters, seat heat, backup camera, good mpg, leather, Sirius radio/nice stereo, AWD, 300hp v6, engine sound, bright headlights


Worst Features

3rd row seat is very tight, exhaust does not sound good at idle, no roof rack

Review

My husband and I have a 2010 MDX and it's been in the service dept almost 5 times with serious issues. two of those being transmission problems.

It had to have a torque converter with less than 30K miles.
It recently needed another tranny software update.
Steering and axle issues......Wow.
For 50K purchase, we shouldn't have these problems!!!

I feel like we need to get RID of this car while it still has a decent resale value.
DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT!! BUY ONE OF THESE CARS!
It's been nothing but a headache for us.
We are trading it in tomorrow.
Will never buy an acura or honda AGAIN!!!
EVER!!!!

Review

Love this car, but unlike other SUV's I've owned this one is more car than truck.
On several occasions I have hauled cargo that the car should have been able to easily handle, approximately 300 - 400 lbs.
However, that was not the case, both times the car wondered all over the road, behaving like it was overaloded, definately not what I expected.
