ReviewVery nice vehicle overall, but not outstanding. Acceleration (off-the-line) is not very strong and feels only very slightly better than my previous '02 MDX. Once it gets going (around 3500 RPM) the engine comes to life. Don't see all the hype about SuperHandling-AWD - much better than the old model, but not any better than others such as the new BMW X5. Ride comfort great with the Active dampers! and front seats are excellent! - but fuel economy is a big disappointment - only getting around 12mpg city and 18 mpg highway at 75mph. (I have about 1650 miles on my MDX.)
Best FeaturesOutstanding NAV system, Fantastic sound system (ELS-Premium), Ultra- comfortable front seats, very smooth/quiet engine.
Worst FeaturesBetter fuel economy!!! Too wide - width hampers parking in tight spots, and makes driving a pain on narrow, crowded streets. Needs at least a 6-speed transmission for better performance/economy, tweak engine for more torque low down in the RPM band.
