2014 Acura MDX: Road Trip Pleasure

June 4, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

Over the weekend I was able to take our long-term 2014 Acura MDX on a road trip to visit friends in Northwestern Nevada, with stops along CA HWY 395 at Mono Lake and June Lake.

Most of the time we had two adults, a 60-pound dog, a cooler, and luggage. On the long stretches we had both the second and third rows folded down, which gave us more cargo room than we needed. I'm proud of my travel gear Tetris skills, but when every square inch is crammed, visibility suffers. This was not the case. I could see out the back and things were easy to access.

On a few hour-long side trips we had no luggage, but all seats were filled and surprisingly, everybody had more room than expected. The third row was easy for people to hop into, and the 60/40 second row could slide forward or back, not just to gain access, but to adjust for legroom needs.

Overall the Acura was a pleasure and time passed easily. The tech was easy to figure out, the ride comfortable, and it had plenty of power when passing oblivious texters.

Overall miles added to the ODO: 1,179
Gallons of fuel used: 55.219

That works out to be an average MPG of 21.25, 2.35 MPG lower than the vehicles' own info-screened estimate of 23.6.
