2012 Acura MDX Technology Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Fuel efficiency poor. Why not use cylinder deactiv like on Pilot. Why not diesel? New Audi diesel sign better at motivating this much weight, efficiency about a third better. Voice tech terrible, useless, must learn the language. Blue tooth phone link also useless sound is so bad can't have a conversn. Rattles, lux Jpnese autos should't. Lots of rattles some almost seem to be designed into the car like the rattle that comes from the pssnger seat belt receptacle or the one that comes from the top of where the 2nd row seat splits. AC and fan direction hidden when you turn on HVAC. Why? Bttns are very hard to use.

Best Features

Driving, traction, utility.

Worst Features

Total technology redo (NAV system is however good). Rethink functions. Total center console redo. Add active cylinder system found in Pilot or employ clean diesel, or both. Mute the finish on the fake wood so don't get blinded by reflection of the sun.

Couldn't agree more. We dumped it for an infiniti JX35... what a wonderful car. REAL tech advancements, not the BS with crappy button layout, lack of power hackback on up, goofy lock dance, etc. Horrible design and terrible button layout... nothing is intuitive. Won't be missing it.
