I have been driving my MDX for 2 years
and have loved it. This vehicle is so
big on the inside and still fun to
drive. You can handle it with ease in
a parking lot or a winding road.
Better gas mileage than many cars. I
have even seen 29.5 mpg on a couple of
highway trips. Usually 24-25 mpg on
hgwy. I have had it on dirt roads and
fire trails as well as family trips
with golf clubs and gear for six. This
vehicle is great. Bigger second row
than Tahoe and easier to get in and out.
I had owned 4 american cars before,
they gave me a lot of mechanic
problems. Inspite of a lot bad commends
about this MDX, I think this is the
BEST car I ever own. I got no problems
with the engine so far.
I drive SUVs because I need the
interior storage space for golf
equipment, antiques and
garden supplies. The Acura MDX easily
offers the largest cargo space of any
mid-sized SUV on the market. With the
rear seats down, you can fit a 4 by 8
plywood sheet flat between the wheel
wells. To have this in a luxury
vehicle engineered by Acura makes this
a no-brainer. If you want an SUV for
the real world, buy an MDX. IF you
want a rather useless hood ornament to
impress your neighbors or prop up a low
self image, buy an X5 or an RX300.
Car-like ride, storage space, third row
On-board computer screen on console is
space that could be better used.
