2009 Acura MDX SUV Sport Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased after looking at all the rest; BMW, Mercedes, Enclave, Audi, Toyota. Sport package took me over the edge to buy. Handling is fantastic. Seating excellent. Controls easy to use. Cost to own seems relatively strong in Edmunds. We will have to wait and see. After two years, this automobile should have 6 speed transmission. Looks like 2010 will finally have one. When I found out it had build parts in Canada, wanted to turn it back in to the dealer!


Best Features

Sport suspension; Bluetooth; Milano leather seating. Rear gate lift is automatic. Sport Wheels; Galactic Grey.


Worst Features

Blind spot fix; easier to use Ipod connection; Wind noise, driver side; Fuel economy; build quality such as rubber gaskets around rear window came out; Engine hood rubber grommets poorly designed, come loose. Hide the windshield wiper blades.

2009 Acura MDX SUV Sport and Entertainment Packages 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My 2009 MDX with 3500+ miles has been taken to dealer 3 times in the last month. Once I had to get it towed to dealership. First time I was told that they was issue with poor quality Timing belt pulley. So timing belt got shredded. They had to replace them both. They took almost week to replace it. Within a day, 2009 MDX developed issue. This time there was an issue with Catalytic converter. They took another week to replace. Again within two days, "Check emission system" came up again. This time I was told they would have to replace another catalytic converter and also sub converters. This is putting a big question mark on Acura products. Quality?


Best Features

The Navigation system is good. But not sure how long it will work.


Worst Features

It would be good if the quality of Acura products is improved.

Review

I'm excited to finally own an Acura. It's my first glimpse into the luxury world and am not a least bit disappointed. Wish they beefed up the standard features (back-up sensors, power tail, USB cable, etc.). However, I think the overall value and the performance of that sweet V6 makes me not care about much of the other stuff. So far, so good. Life is good.


Best Features

Engine sound and performance. Bucket seats grip everything nicely. Service at an Acura dealership.


Worst Features

Need more definition on the sides of the body. Some things should just be standard.

2009 Acura MDX SUV Sport Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love my MDX!!!! I do not know what SUV the other folks are driving, but my experience has been great. The MDX handles like a dream. The stereo is one of the best I have ever heard and I have had no issues to date. The only bad thing is that I am only getting around 18 miles to the gallon on average, 22 highway. The sport package has some of the best looking wheels and a nice leather upgrade. I love my MDX...


Best Features

Stereo. The ability to switch from comfort to sport suspension. Interior is like driving a jet fighter. Back-up camera.


Worst Features

Make the roof rails standard.

Review

Only had the car for two weeks, but really like all the features, especially the way this car customizes everything from the drivers seat, ac, and keyless memory system. Steering is accurate and direct on center, but took some time to get used to as used to drive a Odyssey. Power is soft at first, but comes on strong when you push it. Love the transmission and shifter as it is quick on the shifts and doesn't hesitate like other systems. The SH-AWD is kinda neat, and haven't used it but once in a turn, but it's nice to have and gives great confidence when driving. Mileage on is 20 on trip to bay area, and city seems around 16. So far, so good! I am looking forward to years of driving.


Best Features

Keyless memory, power, steering, rear ac for rear, shifter.


Worst Features

More hooks in back. Provide a mechanism to hold up the rear small cargo hatch so that it can be used in the open position like the pilot.
