False MPG Claim!
By ezboston on


2011 Acura MDX Technology and Entertainment Packages 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


I have a 2010 MDX Tech Package/entertainment since April and my Average MPG is between 11/13 MPG. I have been conservatively driving the car. I do 80% Highway. Horrible car to get if you are are concerned about getting that extra few MPG.

You must be driving VERY aggressively. I get 17 if I drive aggressively in the city and 21 on the highway with cruise on in my 2011.

Sounds fishy...On 2011 MDX he refers to 2010 model. Also his rating on other parameters is sub-par...Why did he buy car if he did not like the interior design?

I don't think I could drive our MDX aggressively enough to only get 11-13 mpg. Something isn't right here. We average about 16.5 mpg in mostly city driving and that includes idling while waiting in school line to pick up our son 5 days a week. We get 20-21 on freeway trips and about 23 when driving two lane roads at 62-64 mph.

I have had a 2005, and 2008 MDX. Both gave about 18.5+ in combined driving using. Sounds like an issue with this individual vehicle or something else.
