What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Acura MDX

Acura MDX Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Bought this car because the fuel economy was the same as the Hybrid SUV I was looking to replace. Best miliage is on the highway with AC off at 27 MPG. It gets 23-24 in the city with AC off.
2008 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
can be better
2006 4dr SUV 253-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
One of the best for an SUV. 24 highway at 70 mph, 20 in town.
2002 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
I have averaged 25 mpg on the road, occasionally reaching 26-7. Ethanol is bad for it (as it is on all older cars).
2002 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
Unbeatable for a 4WD vehicle of its capacity.
2002 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
Best economy in its class. For a 7 passenger vehicle, great hwy mileage. I averaged 22-25mpg strict hwy. 15-18mpg in town.
Acura MDX Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2012 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Gas mileage is not good. The best I get is around 20 mpg, and use 91 octane as reccommended. I've tried mid-grade 89 octane with no noticable difference but for $1.00-$2.00 per tankful, I'm choosing to stick with what is reccommended. It would be nice to have a front wheel drive only version which would save on gas, but it's not offered.

Gas engine does not achieve excellent mileage diesels provide

5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I have yet to see 15 city/20 hwy, even with 12k on the odometer and not driving it hard. 13/18 is more like it.

5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Well, it's AWD, and it's a heavy SUV. As a result, fuel economy is not great.
2008 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Gets only 17-18 mpg.
2007 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
City driving is worse than advertised...15 to 16 mpg. But highway is 23-24 mpg.

5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
19Mpg is ok. Its not great.
2007 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I get only 16mpg even on highways
2006 4dr SUV 253-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
wish the fuel economy could have been addressed a bit more...not really complaining cos I drive an Odyssey too ..which has the same engine as the MDX..similar consumption...

MDX:lower mileage + premium fuel + Seven Seats Pilot: better milage + regular fuel +8 seats
