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


Save your money folks -lot better stuff out there for the price. Have owned new MDX for about a year. Maintenance costs are VERY high. Differential fluid changes every 15,000 miles - not kidding. It's based on the service code. Dealers are all old school and in terrible condition. Have been to 3 different ones and they're all unprofessional -- and crooks to boot! Today I took the MDX in and apparently the brakes went out at 25000 miles. Fog/DTL light cover had melted from heat and they told me the exhaust from someone backing up real close must have done it -- unbelievable! Acura cust svc is just as bad. I have a Lexus too-the service experience and reliability is in a whole diff. league.

Best Features

Honda tried to build a "luxury" brand -- they have failed miserably. Acuras are nothing but Hondas with the same poor dealership service but with higher maintenance cost!

Worst Features

Get some quality control of the Dealer network. Build cars that require less maintenance trend. With other luxury brands offering maintenance free or free scheduled maintenance, Acura comes up with a car that requires differential fluid changes costing $100 every 15k mi. Should be disclosed upfront.
