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


Review

I traded my new 2010 MDX after months of working with Acura Client Services and the Dealer.

The MDX's progressive transmission, in my opinion, is poorly designed. Although, the driver is pressing the gas pedal, the MDX will have long delays during gear cycles.

This could be dangerous if attempting to make a quck turn in on-coming traffic. You want to go, but the MDX moves very slowly or not at all.

Second, the cabin lets in so much air that during the winter, the heat must be set to keep the cabin warm, especially at the feet.

Last, the MDX looses lots of horsepower as it cycles through the gears. A sluggish ride at best.

For the money, find something else.


Best Features

The seat are soft and nice.


Worst Features

The mix between fuel and performance is a miss. The cycle timing of the transmission is wrong. It needs to be redesigned. The dealr does have the equipment to make changes to the on-board computer.

Review

After having a bad experience with the dealer who insisted & put a different remote starter because of supposedly Acura's is not reliable and dealing with Acura headquarters who were not responsive to our complaints, I am now content with my 2010 MDX ,7,500 miles on it. There is room for improvement in terms of gas mileage, noise reduction and quality of interior materials.


Best Features

Audio surround Sound system is the best feature I like. 15GB hard disk drive media storage(HD)which can store all your music without the need for changing CD's. Road handling is superb. Navigation system is very good.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, noise reduction, heating system for the legs in the winter is inadequate ( the feet gets cold in the winter)

Review

This is my wife's car although I drive it often. I'm not a huge fan of the MDX. It suited our needs and was a good value compared to other luxury CUV's. Way too many buttons and very confusing to navigate the controls and nav system. Voice commands are useless - even difficult to make a simple phone call.
(In the Genesis you just push 1 button and say, "dial home," for example.) Nav & stereo, although rated high, doesn't even belong in the same league as the Genesis. Seams are not tight. Quite a bit of noise for a lux CUV. Good power and ride as well as fairly comfortable. I like it overall but I hope Hyundai comes out with a luxury CUV soon, because it will blow away Acura.


Best Features

DVD is really good. Rides and handles well. Good power for a V6. Luxury dealer service.


Worst Features

Some seams have almost a half inch gap in them! Luxury means the vehicle needs to be quite!! The MDX is not quite! Get rid of all of the buttons. We have the DVD package, which does makes it worse. Why should I have to push 2 buttons to make a phone call. Name recognition for dialing someone doesn't work well. Sorry I keep praising my Genesis but the nav, voice commands and stereo are just outstanding - and it annoys me that Acura keeps bragging about their system when it's not even in the same league. Acura is falling way behind other luxury manufacturers in my opinion. Needs auto dim exterior mirrors. Rear camera is hard to judge and simple rain dirties it up too easily.

Review

Traded in a 2005 Honda Pilot. The Pilot's acceleration, cornering, and braking can't compare to the MDX. I have it out on the twisty roads of the Sierra Nevada. It feels like a decent sports sedan, not an SUV. The interior ambience if the MDX is way more luxurious than the Pilot. Another huge difference is road noise. There is very little road noise in the MDX. Gas mileage is disappointing. At 8,000 miles on the odometer, I am still not hitting the EPA highway mileage on longer trips. So far it is has not had a single reliability issue. If is is as reliable as my previous 3 Acuras, it will be a 10.


Best Features

SH-AWD, Commanding Driving Position, power tilt/telescope with memory, handling and acceleration.


Worst Features

Push-Button Start in base model.

Review

The powertrain (engine and transmission) are unbelievable smooth. The six speed transmission is a significant improvement over the previous 5 speed one. Seat comfort is a perfect 10 as is the interior design. Handling is agile, especially for a vehicle this size. Outward visibility is excellent, the ELS stereo sounds fantastic along with its USB/IPOD integration and the ability to rip CDs right to the hard drive. The leather is soft and supple and the ride is extremely composed at all speeds. A sporty yet comfortable suspension is the way to go and this vehicle nails it. Gas mileage is as expected given this vehicles size & weight if no better than others for its size.


Best Features

Hi-def looking, hard drive based navigation screen and the power-train are the highlights (particularly the 6-speed transmission). Handling for its size, steering wheel thickness, and size, comfort, stereo, handling and braking (which is impressive). Console shifter is titled toward driver - nice.


Worst Features

Minor gripes - 1) Push button start (tech package anyone) should be standard, 2) quicker off the line scoot (once going though, this vehicle moves) 3) separate the blue-tooth phone system from the navigation so an initial call can be made without having to acknowledge the disclaimer screen first.
