Unacceptable noises
By buchem on


2014 Acura MDX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Soon after delivery we took a long road trip. Would have been enjoyable with great comfort but trip was ruined by dashboard rattles and intermittent grating noise under light acceleration. After three trips to dealer the dash noises are less but not eliminated and are judged to be "normal". Not in $50K car. Worse is the grating noise. Dealer says it is a "known issue" with no known cause or solution. I know the 2014 model is a total redesign butt his is just unacceptable. All I can say to potential buyers is avoid this car. Acura is selling cars with a known issue and not currently able to fix them. We are very unhappy customers.

Best Features

Comfort. Good gas mileage for size and performance.

Worst Features

Ditch touch screen. Very poor quality materials and poor user interface. Have Apple do the touch screen engineering. Improve quality control at the plant.
