2008 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


This is my first SUV and I couldn't be happier. Choice was between an 08 Highlander and 08 MDX and for a few thousand more you get a much more impressive interior, better handling & steering feedback, a more agile ride, and HID headlamps. Fuel economy has been much more impressive than expected - ~24 highway, ~19 city, 22 avg with 65/35 highway/city driving (1,300 mi on odo). Only major gripes are you can't read the stereo display screen with sun glare from sunroof (even on max brightness) & no compass is present.

Best Features

Auto-open windows/sunroof, bluetooth, comfortable seats, quiet ride & handling, extremely bright headlights, multiple power outlets.

Worst Features

Include standard options present only on Canadian base model (compass & headlamp washers). Ability to choose from preset EQ settings & associate with an FM/AM/XM preset. Make power liftgate standard. Impossible to see stereo display with glare from sun even on max brightness.
