2008 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Power Tailgate, Technology Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Second MDX we have owned. First generation was good but unexciting. New MDX quality matches all of the German competition with Honda reliability. Very solid feel and intuitive electronics. Nav and bluetooth are great. ELS sound system is excellent - especially when surround is turned on.


Best Features

Add keyless start system.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. But if you compare it to other models you can't do much better with the same amount of space.

2008 Acura MDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great SUV with superior handling, comfort, and overall appearance. Fuel economy is edging toward the v8 area, but considering the size of the mdx, it gets pretty good mileage. Ride is very smooth and the 300 hp gets it up and going quickly. Recommend the mdx to anyone looking into an SUV with the performance and luxury you get with Acura, and the reliability you can expect from Honda.


Best Features

Appearance, engine performance, SHawd, comfort, 2nd row heater seats, 10 spkr acura/ELS surround sound


Worst Features

Push button ignition (that would be sweet), more tire options for the 19" rims, improved remote start ignition.

Review

The car is very comfortable even for a 6'6" guy like myself. The "sit test" eliminated many other models. I've only had it for 2 weeks, but so far, no major complaints. I got 17.3 MPG on the first tank in mostly rush hour traffic which was surprising.


Best Features

Overall, a good car with excellent power and acceleration for a car this size.


Worst Features

The AM radio seems a little muffled compared to FM and the voice recognition feature could be improved.

Review

I'm in the market for a new vehicle to replace my other car and since I have been relying so heavily on consumer reviews from this website, thought I would write one for the MDX. It's a great car - very reliable, no problems whatsoever. Quiet, luxurious interior, tremendous AWD handling, smooth transition, nice power, flexible interior. Fuel economy is not great - I get around 23 MPG on the highway at 73 MPH with cruise set, but around 17 in town. The car is just awesome and now that I am looking for new cars again to replace our other one, I am focused on the Acura brand for its quality. If you are in market for upscale SUV, this is the one to get.


Best Features

All electronics - bluetooth, radio, nav system, voice commands, and great seats!


Worst Features

Better fuel economy - perhaps add VCM to the Acura line, but with 300 hp running on AWD, getting 23 MPG on highway still isn't bad.

Review

Even after a few days there were problems with this SUV. Nothing really big but things detaching, safety belt not working (twice). This SUV is characterized by poor quality built and an overall blunt drive. The cargo space is quite big and the third row sat functional for kids. Burt for the price tag you should get better drive quality and certainly better build quality. The bluetooth function is very poor and does not synchronize with most phones. The dvd system does have some problems too. Poor fuel economy. Acura compares itself to BMW but they have a long, long way to go


Best Features

Cargo space. Exterior looks.


Worst Features

Fuel economy, drive quality, built quality, technology economy, lower price for this quality of product.
