2011 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
This is my third Acura. I am happy with the quality and technology mostly. but, I think that they are a bit overpriced. They can not compete with BMW in style, or reputation, but charge almost the same for their vehicles. see full Acura MDX review

Bought MDX for its 4 wheel drive, especially the much touted super handling system. MDX provides good value for all the options which came with the vehicle. Acura name provides high end brand name. see full Acura MDX review

Just after I put down my money for European delivery and Consumer Reports "worst reliability" came out for the V6. This web site reassured me about the cause of the report, the plastic housing water pump, that no longer comes on the V6. see full Audi Q5 review

Ford Explorers were long a bad brand based on the tire fiasco that was proven, for the most part, was owner created. So have high expectations that it will improve. see full Audi Q5 review
