Acura dealer thinks its still a Honda (It totally is)-Take lessons from Lexus Service

Capable Sport Utility Vehicle — Great car, comfortable. Off road capable. The more you drive it the more you love it! Still looks new when clean. Photo is after going up Pike's Peak in a blizzard with five people and no issues. Great all-around vehicle.

All Looks No Performance — horrible shifting more lights on than park o2 sensors vtm4. light this car is truly a rip off. cost a lot and works to get around but the fake o2 SR and vtm4 sensors are not worth fixing cause they come back in in another 1500 miles later

One of the top-rated SUV buys.

Dealer prices (service and purchase) and transmission issues.

If You're Looking For Midsize Suv, Try It - You'll Buy It. — A classy, quick, safe, and spacious truck with respectable MPG. Very good buy used, just watch the tranny recall as they had some issues in 01 and 02. I bought mine already replaced at 75K. I would skip service at the dealer unless you're wanting more resale dollars from a private sale which may not warrant it.

Mdx Ultimately Practical Snob Daddy Wagon — Its basically like driving a Swiss Army Knife...dependable, luxurious and practical but its gut some chutzpa and while the gas mileage is nothing to be proud of, it suits my combo sales-guy super-dad lifestile better than anything else I can t hink of and at its hart well...its a Honda.

Premium gas $$$$$Love my MDX

Love My Mdx — Excellent SUV that seats 8 if three are pretty small, we have two other Acuras but drive this one the most because it holds all our stuff. The Nav screen is one of the best things about the MDX. Actually got 26.7 mpg highway on our trip tp the mountains this summer (speed limit was 60 all through Georgia, they're rebuiling every road in the state....the TL is ten times more fun to drive!Warning... the new MDX is fantastic, but it only gets 15 city/20 hwy mpg...it does have 300 hp though : )

my only complaint.

Awesome Car — This is my favorite car that I've ever had. It's roomy, comfortable, drives smoothly and has heated seats.

Great Mom Car — has lots of room for people and whatever you need to move around but has no motor power. Not one of Acura's best cars on sale, needed two new transmissions in the first year and the brakes like to lock up when it gets cold out so the car won't move when you put it in drive.

The New Acura Venza By bgf18

One day, during a 300-mile road trip, our 2011 MDX popped some engine codes and went into a "limp-home" mode. We made it to a dealer and our loaner was a 2014 Base MDX w/ Tech. Had it for about 96 h... Read More

Probably The Best Handling Suv Below $60k By bgf18
