2010 Acura MDX SUV Technology and Entertainment Packages 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


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.

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


Review

The audio system is both good and horrible. The AM radio is the worst I have ever heard on any vehicle, regardless of price. There is no mid-range at all, making it sound as though it is being played through a megaphone. Interestingly enough, when playing the hard drive, or CD, it sound much better.


Best Features

Adaptive cruise, handling, power.


Worst Features

Better AM radio, flat folding 2nd seats with head rest storage. An antenna that is not located smack dab in the middle of the roof. (If you have a luggage box or skis, etc. it covers you antenna and makes your GPS worthless.

Review

I purchased one of the last 2010 Advance/Entertainment MX's that the dealer had on the lot and couldn't be happier. We test drove a number of SUV's including the new RX, Highlander, and BMW. The vehicle handles so much better than the RX and just seems to have a good balance of sport and comfort. I love the selectable ride option as well as the blind spot warning indicators. The stereo system is AMAZING and light years ahead of my RX. Voice recognition and navigation system were much better than the BMW we looked at. The new 6 speed transmission shifts smoothly and pickup is impressive for a vehicle of it's size. Fit and Finish is also impressive.


Best Features

Bluetooth audio to stream Pandora and audio files from my Blackberry through the audio system. Ipod control with voice recognition. Cargo space. Surround sound. Perforated leather seating with the heated and ventilated seats. Performance and handling. Navigation control.


Worst Features

Rear camera is poor in low light conditions. Rain sensing wipers would be nice too. Other than that, I love everything about it.

Review

Have had the car for a month and overall quite happy with it. It is the best value for the money in this size/category. The tech pkg has tons of features, though some are more gimmicky than useful. Not crazy about the exterior, but interior is roomy and comfortable. Cargo area is smaller than I'd like. Performance is ok. The engine lacks torque and has to rev hard for power (while making a lot of noise). Coming from a European SUV, I feel the suspension is too soft and steering is way too loose. The torque vectoring is a bit unpredictable when cornering. Road noise is surprisingly high. The car had a couple of small issues upon delivery, which is disappointing for a Honda product.


Best Features

The stereo & nav systems (minus the voice recognition, which is more hassle than its worth). Roomy & comfortable seating in two rows. Comfort on long trips. Lots of storage. USB interface (but it should allow transfer of MP3). Integrated rear DVD. Power lift gate. Independent rear AC controls.


Worst Features

Tighter steering. Either more engine torque or better gas mileage. Quieter interior. Deeper/taller cargo area. Narrower rear doors. More dirt resistant leather. Move left dead pedal further away from driver. Bluetooth that connects to & auto- switches between multiple paired phones in the car.

Review

Have had 4-MDX's. The 10 model is the worse. Second row seats don't fold flat unless the second row headrests are removed. When removed there is no place to store them. More squecks and rattles than other 3 MDX's. Milage is not good for having a 6-speed trans. Recommended is 91 octane fuel. If use less the engine gives a fluttering noise. Dealer says tht is normal. This did not happened in any of my other 3 MDX's. Overall not happy with vehicle. Will look elsewhere when purchasing replacement vehicle.
