Pros

Very comfortable, quiet  (even on the freeway), reliable, looks great

Cons

Maintenance over 120K will get expensive, everything starts to go around 120K.  Also, tends to have leaks at seals (leading to interior of car).  This could be also a geographic issue (in Seattle).

Best Family Ride (for All Ages) — I loved this car. Loved the look, the drive, and the space. It is fun to drive, and will keep you entertained. Maintenance over 120K will get expensive, everything starts to go around 120K. Also, tends to have leaks at seals (leading to interior of car). This could be also a geographic issue (in Seattle). Very comfortable, quiet (even on the freeway), reliable, looks great.

Pros

The Acura MDX ranks high in safety and handles great considering it's categorized as a large SUV. Love the 3rd row seat, the car is very spacious. Its a very reliable car , never had any major issues other than normal wear & tear.

Cons

Gas mileage is not so great, but then again it is the same as all other large size SUVs.

The Most Reliable & Safe Suv In Its Class! — The Acura MDX is rated high in safety and it handles great for being a large size SUV. The 3rd row seat is perfect for families with kids and sports activities. Gas mileage isn't the best but it is has one of the highest rankings in safety which is the reason I decided to buy another one.

Pros

has own this vehicle for 10 years and for the first time other than brakes and inspection the radiator went bad on me.  only replace the rear brakes twice in those 10 years and three times for the front. i am hitting up on 147000 miles and the vehicle still rides like new

Cons

not any other than a recall on the air bags

5 Star Vehicle Well Worth The Money — there is nothing i don't like just a great vehicle to own its not a cheap vehicle but you will get your money worth out of buying this vehicle. i also own the 2009 acura mdx and found that the newer mdx burns a lot more gas than the older mdx.

Awesome Truck — One of the best trucks ever. Extremely reliable and amazing looks. People who purchase these do not get rid of them for good reason. I love the way it handles, the heat working fast, quick in and out. Easy car.

Pros

Reliable, has 3rd row seat,AWD for bad weather, and not too bad on gas 12mpg city 22mpg highway.

Cons

Could be better on gas. Gets the same mpg as my Hemi,2nd row seat makes it hard to access 3rd row. little cargo room while using 3rd row seat. Cats and transfer case was the most expensive repairs I had.

Its An Acura/honda — This is a good size suv crossover type wagon for a family of five. Space of 3rd row is limited,unable to use 3rd row and have cargo space unless you use roof rack with cargo bin.Reliable as you would expect a Honda/Acura to be. Nice body lines and styling,keeps it's value as all Hondas and Acuras.

Comfortable seating inside and has been rated one of the safest vehicles with great handling for a vehicle considered to be a large SUV.

Most Reliable Family Car — Best feature about the Acura MDX is that it has the 3rd Row seat so it is considered a large SUV, but it looks like and handles like a mid size. Gas mileage isn;t great but ranks high in safety!

Smooth, comfortable ride. Dependable, safe, well built. I like the design. It's not too boxy like a lot of other suv's.

Cons

Gas mileage but even that's not as bad as some vehicles in its class

Best Choice — Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about this car. If I HAD to choose something I would say, it's white. I never wanted a white car but this one was too nice to pass up and white has sort if grown on me now.

Great Family Sports Utility Car — I really enjoyed driving this car everyday to and from work. It always came in handy whenever there was a lot to move around and definitely had a smooth ride. This was my first luxury car and I have to say that it is a great car!! Right now I am looking to down size, I do not have a lot to move around and no children and being that my daily commute is about 50 miles a day I would like to find something with better mileage. I wish that I could afford to keep this car, because it really is a great car!

Pros

Comfortable with lots of storage and safety features. NOT a minivan!

Cons

Not super gas mileage... still minivan-ish on the scale of cool cars.

Fun Mama Mobile — I love my Acura MDX. It has a really comfy ride and a fairly peppy engine. The all wheel drive and VSA rocks in wet and icy weather. It's a super good mama-mobile... lots of storage and seating, heavy on the cupholders (although not quite big enough to hold a Rt 44 drink from Sonic... grah!). I've promised multiple times to drive this car until the doors fall off, and at some point, I hope that'll happen because I'd love to buy another one!

traffic.

Satisfied — We bought this car used with only a couple scratches and it runs like new. We only had to go through an oil change. This car always starts successfully in 1 shot, even in freezing weather. The 4WD works well.
