2007 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I just moved to Germany two months ago and bought an 07 MDX from another military member. It has everything I could want. We just returned from a week driving through the Alps and this SUV is simply amazing. Granted, I get to drive it much faster than I could in the states, but even at 120 MPH, it was rock solid. We need the AWD for the snow and the kids stay entertained with the AV system. Plenty of passing power and very comfortable on long trips. Acuras are rare in Germany and I get stares all the time by curious Bavarians wondering what kind of vehicle I have. If you are in the market for a luxury SUV for family touring, with cool tech toys to play with, MDX can't be beat.


Best Features

The separate controls for the rear passengers are awesome. I can control temp and AV from the front or switch to rear. Sound system is amazing. I will sometimes sit in the driveway and just listen. Also has a 120v outlet in console. Great for us since we live with 220v and need 120 on occasion.


Worst Features

I will have to add a few things that I didn't have to add on my 4Runner, i.e. a roof rack and a hitch. Also gas mileage is not great, but at 100 mph on the Autobahn, what else would I expect.

2007 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Sport Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After months of careful research and test drives at BMW, Lexus, Volvo, etc. I settled on the MDX without a doubt in mind. I love the way the car handles, no stiffness or resistance in the steering or acceleration. The interior design is a little Star Trek for me, but once I figured everything out, it is a pleasure to have all the extras (XM radio, navigation, Bluetooth, backup camera, etc.)


Best Features

The self-adjusting side mirrors which rotate to give you a view of the curb/lines as you back up. Makes backing into parking spaces and parallel parking a breeze, along with the back-up camera. Also a fan of the push-to-talk for my cell phone.


Worst Features

Auto-open for the back hatch should be standard. There IS an iPod link in all MDX (I don't know why people are saying there's not) it's inside the center console. Buy an AUX cord and you're good to go (looks like a two-way headphone connector.) Fuel economy around 20/22 for me, but hey, it's an SUV.

Review

I'm two years into a three year lease and I love this car. The only thing I would change would be the shape of the grill...THAT'S IT. Everything else is perfect. Great performance, plenty of power and AWD when skiing, plenty of room for baggage, great MPG for an SUV, navi system is far superior to GM's Suburban (don't have to put in park to change your destination, etc). Zero problems...just gas and oil changes. One beautiful car...except for the sho-gun shield looking grill.


Best Features

Navi is easy, hands-free is great, AWD is perfect.


Worst Features

Get rid of the angular, shield looking grill in front. Other than that...perfect.

Review

First luxury crossover SUV I have owned. MDX won out over the Lexus, and cost less for a very well equipped base package. Handling, power and ride are outstanding. Back seats are a little less comfortable for my tall teenagers. Back cargo area is very roomy, and easily expandable with 3rd seat folded and back seats down. I drive up snowy, often treacherous mountain canyons to ski in the winter. The SH-AWD system, coupled with the manual shift mode (for descents), is outstanding. The MDX is much better in the snow than 3 truck base SUVs, I have owned previously.


Best Features

AWD system, exterior styling, cargo room


Worst Features

Gas mileage is not great, and the need for premium fuel is expensive, especially when gas tops $4.00/gallon. A hybrid MDX would be a great addition.

Review

This is the first Japanese SUV we have had in a while. Last SUV's were Yukon XL and Envoy XL. This beats them out by far. Performs almost as well as our Mercedes e class but has the utility of our Envoy. We always take this on trips and it is very comfortable. The third row is great for smaller children but not so much for adults. Best SUV so far. No problems within our almost 2 years ownership.


Best Features

Navigation, sound system, bluetooth, comfort, acceleration, performance, all wheel drive ability.


Worst Features

14.1 ave. mpg, but what can you expect for a 4500 pound 300 hp SUV?
