2010 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


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.

2010 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


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.

Review

5K miles so far and loving it. Rattling noise after purchase, took 2 visits to discover defective strut that was replaced without hassle. Great for family trips with 3 little ones (and there are 3 latch connectors 2nd row which is nice). Highly recommend.


Best Features

nav interface, handling, comfort


Worst Features

Slight skip every now and then on iphone music connection (seems to be a problem for a few people), mileage (diesel engine would be perfect).

Review

Fast, nimble, comfortable, killer stereo. This is an amazing vehicle. It drives more like a sports car than an SUV. Incredible in the corners. Great power throughout the RPM band with smooth delivery from the 6 speed tranny. I have heard some complaints about gas mileage but I get 18 all around - quite good for this size vehicle. I think this is probably the best value in a luxury SUV out there, so make sure it is on your test drive short list.


Best Features

Rock solid build quality, Great Nav system, ELS 5.1 surround sound is AWESOME, seat comfort, power liftgate, 5000 lb tow capacity is a bonus for this level of luxury.


Worst Features

A little more area for the left foot rest, a flip up rear tailgate window.

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


Review

I cant believe its almost better than a sedan, the way MDX controls its body roll, sudden stop with almost no head bobbing. Very quiet compared to my TL'04 and a ton of gadgets. I've always said that I'm not really into SUV (not fast enuf, heavy bodyroll, poor handling and sipping gas like crazy). Those impressions I got after i test drove X5 n RX but MDX adv has both world. With Adv model's price, I cud go with X5 premium or diesel, but reliability is my main concern. 7 seat is also a plus, bigger than X5 and it seems MDX sells better. After watching a youtube's video how MDX was compared with audi/RX in 20-30 degreed steep climbing an icy/snowy ramp, I knew my choice.


Best Features

Minimized bodyroll, head bobbing and its smoooth SH-AWD handling. Quiet and soft ride with sporty mode option by a touch of a button. Tons of gadget.


Worst Features

better MPG, 19 mix driving is still bad for me.
