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

Remains one of the best luxury values around with cache. You get a lot when you get an RX, but give up only a little bit of handling and gas mileage. Why would anyone want to buy a highlander instead of this??? see full Lexus RX review

Lexus is rated No.1 for quality, fewest defects and highest owner satisfaction every year. I believe they have been voted No.1 for twelve years in a row. see full Lexus RX review
