Beauty has rarely been more in the eye of the beholder. Having reliability among your priorities likely rules out all but the MCC and ZDX, and possibly the Nissan as well (I'm a bit iffy on the long-term durability of the CVT, and have no idea how well the top mechanism holds up). If you can find a ZDX with reasonable miles for less than $20k, jump on it. There appear to be an handful listed nationwide. It appears to be somewhat easier to find an MCC with fewer miles and at a somewhat lower price.

Thanks for the response.

I don't think I was thinking realistically when I provided the no more than $20k dollar amount lol. I actually work for Acura of Springfield. We currently have a 2013 ZDK on our lot for $34,000, it was a one owner leased vehicle, and worth every penny. Funky looking thing isn't it? But I just love it. Unfortunately I had to sell per my job.

I have searched nationwide for other ZDXs, and they really are few and far between but I like to gather others' insight on them, and every vehicle for that matter, as it strengthens my product knowledge.

I have worked for Nissan in the past as well. I am on pretty neutral about the CVT transmissions. I find the Murano Crosscab to be one of the oddest vehicles I have ever encountered!

Personally though, I really want to find a Subaru Baja. That's the dream.

I appreciate the time you took to respond to me!

$20k doesn't seem unreasonable for a 2010 ZDX with about 90,000 miles. Few people know these even exist, so they're hard to sell quickly. If you find someone who badly wants to sell, you can get a lower price.

The Bajas are pretty old at this point, and I would not expect them to be reliable.
