Was so happy after bought a 2011 MDX Base model on Saturday, however discovered a problem the very next day that it would jerk when decelerating from 35~40MPH to around 15MPH without breaking. The jerk is 100% reproducible and getting worse and worse. Brought back to dealer twice and finally convinced them it is problem that need to be fixed. Eventually they figured out that a secondary valve on the transmission is faulty! How could this happen on a brand new car? After replacing $200+ part, the problem is fixed. My new car has to stay in the shop for 3 days in the very first week. Really worry about the build quality. It will be my last and final MDX.
Within two weeks after purchasing the MDX, with 300 miles only, transmission fluid leaking was found. It took 2 days for the dealership to fix the problem. It's a nightmare owning this car. This will be my first and last Acura.
A most impressive vehicle. Mechanically superior to any other comparable tested. Great ride, terrific fit and finish. Traction -- starting and stopping -- with Michelin's in Michigan winter is great. That tuning of the suspension at Nurburgring made a great AWD even better. And, it's made in North America!
Can see why Motor Trend and Car and Driver have rated at top of class!
Steering, braking, traction - even in snow, base stereo beyond what Bose can produce, third seat (even though a little tight) a real bonus, back-up camera, snug but very comfortable ride.
The six-speed trans far superior to the GM trans -- can barely hear of feel the shifting; and, the cruise doesn't constantly downshift to lower gear on hilly terrain -- almost feels like a CVT.
Better gas mileage -- currently averaging 19 in mostly city driving, but knew that going in.
Cost of accessories high.
Even in base model, remote start and front/rear sensors would be a real plus!
After not even considering this SUV, all I have to say is awesome. Performance, feel, and value, what a shocker. Please go drive all the others, then drive this one. You will be happy to write a review after you buy it!!!!. Great product.
6 speed, 300hp, handling, wife approved ride and style, and still goes in the snow!!!
Was in the market for a vehicle with third row and this fit the bill perfectly! Compared with the bmw x5 i kept coming back to this suv for comparable ride/handling and the price difference was the clincher! 3rd row standard on MDX, upgrade on BMW, leasing a base model with NOTHING out of pocket for $610 a month!!! will add DVD player for kids for 1k later on and get a garmin for Nav. no need to pay extra 10k for all the extra gadgets. the performance and exterior of the truck are the same no matter the tech package.
Acceleration, handling, interior finish, xenon headlights and interior lighting is great!
2nd row seat only slides forward on passenger side folds flat on driver side. no big deal really. this truck kicks a**!
