Best Reason to Buy the Acura MDX: Reliability & durability
Pros: Rock solid reliability. Primarily a short commuter and drive-the-kids-around-town car, but have driven a few long trips such as Westchester County NY to Florida.

The normal wear and tear items have been replaced over the years...lights, wipers, tires, brakes, and one set of rotors.


Ah..tip. Bewhere of dealer shops!! In my experience, the recommend unneeded or gray area work at best. This has been confirmed by 2 indedependent mechanics. For example, brought the car in for a shifter recall...no charge of course. During that, had them lock at front end due to uneven front tire wear. "You need X, Y, Z...$540"

Brought to my guy, put on the lift, and he showed me all the areas noted. Perfect..no work needed. My guy's assesment, ..."you're waaay out of allignement. Hit on potholes?" Not me..but...the other driver when question..yes...some huge ones. Duh..driving for a long period out of allignment and/or balance will affect tire wear.

Con: Only one...gas mileage around town is 15mpg or so.. Ech, but I knew that getting in.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Acura MDX: Dealer practices
At least 2 attempts by 2 dealers to perform unneeded work at high prices.

Best Reason to Buy the Acura MDX: Fuel economy
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.



Best Reason Not to Buy the Acura MDX: Audio & nav systems
The Nav is worthless. Garmin is a thousand time better than this Nav. Voice recongition is worthless for anything. Do not subscribe to AcuraLink Connect as the it has unreliable voice recognition also for the most part, but better than the stock NAV.

  A solid SUV choice.....
A member in Texas, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Acura MDX: Driving position & visibility
This vehicle has excellent visibility all the way around and is very comfortable regardless of how long your on the road. The seat design is excellent.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Acura MDX: Controls and instruments
It takes a while to get use to where the basic controls are located. We have a "tech model" and there's a great deal of features that you learn about over time. It's dangerous sometimes since amost of the controls are lower on the console so your eyes are off the road. Too many buttons, too close together.

A member in Ohio, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Acura MDX: Powertrain performance
Heavy SUV, but the engine response is outstanding.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Acura MDX: Materials & workmanship
The fit and finish on this vehicle did/do not meet my expectations. I drove a Lexus RX prior, and the all-around build quality, fit and finish of that vehicle was far superior.

Best Reason to Buy the Acura MDX: Driving position & visibility
I want to sit higher than a car so I can see better. The MDX gives excellent visibility from the side and back besides the front. It is an extremely comfortable sitting position for the driver.
