The MDX is an overall better fit for my family of 5. It's got a lot of space for the kids with it's 3rd row option. It handles great. Looks very classy and sporty. It's packed with technology for those who like to push buttons.

I love this car.  I call it my snowmobile.  The handling is fantastic and it has great get up and go for an SUV.

Cons

The maintenance costs are high and tires for it are more expensive than I would've guessed.

Snowmobile Suv — Great car for the snow and ice. I haven't had a problem getting where I need to be. The braking is incredible. It takes some getting used to driving to know where the car is around you. Accelerates like a dream!

Pros

Very reliable and easy to service.  I was surprised by how well this vehicle handled pulling a large trailer.

Cons

I've had to replace the blue tooth module.  The remote start does not allow you to enter the vehicle. The front bumper has to be removed to replace the $160 headlamp bulbs.

Great Utility For The Urban On-roader — This is rock solid vehicle. This vehicle has plenty of cargo space and works well for the weekend trips to Home Depot and Lowes. This vehicle will not disappoint you in most situations. That is unless you are following your friend's Grand Cherokee off-road. The MDX is dressed for a Starbucks line, not the Rubicon.

Awesome Suv — great handling, agile SUV. Truly a utility vehicle. Has lots of room for storage. All wheel drive will take you places where regular cars just can't. Sporty looking, not your avarage suv. Very reliable and smooth. Decent maintenance cost. Great SUV!

gas milage is ok but that is price you pay for power. front seats are for me and my wife, hard to get comfortable in. bluetooth is hard to pair with iPhone5

Great Family Car With A Touch Of Sports Car — love the style so fun to drive, great handling great power, very functional space, great storage. I like the style better than the new body style. I tow a dual axel motorcycle trailer ad it does a great job and has plenty of power to pull it. Have taken in on many a 1000 mile trip and enjoyed every mile.

Worker Or Black Tie Vehicle — I like the third row seats and the rear storage. The MDX is very versatile and is a pleasure to drive around town or on "road trips" with the family or friends. Very well equiped vehicle with enough power, but I might appreciate a little bit more horsepower. I have heard of adding a computer chip to enhance power and fuel economy.

Great Every Day Car! — Great price for a great vehicle. Technology, style, and durability is awesome. The vehicle MPG was the biggest selling point of this vehicle. 21-24 MPG is awesome. I'm sure we are going to drive this vehicle until the wheels fall off.

Ultimate Luxo-cruiser — Best luxo SUV out there. powerful 3.7 L V6 producing 300 hp. tows 5000 lbs.Love the technology it has. Love the navigation and the sound system. Only owned it for 2 years. Probably going to keep it for far longer. no problems what so ever. Has around 35 kkms. Only thing about the exterior design that is worse than the previous generation is the rear windows. they are smaller and make rear visibility a bit compromised. Very spacious and comfortable. SH-AWD is a huge improvement over the VTM-4 on the previous generation.

Gorgeous — Ride is so smooth and agile that it doesn't feel like a truck. Was not pleased with Dealer selling agent. The appearance of both exterior and interior are superb.
