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.

Pros: Handling is like a sports car, great navi, customizable driver settings, 3rd row seat while small is fine for small kids, great power, towing ability is very good

Cons: 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

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice looking and very dependable in all kinds of weather.  A very smooth ride as well.

Cons: Tech Equipment sometimes bother me, usually the emissions and All wheel system warnings.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 23 MPG

Cons: none

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: technology, power, design

Cons: smaller windows

2008 Mdx -fun Car — I looked at and tried a number of SUVs. I had owned a Touarge, one is enough. I tried out every other brand except the American models, I'm almost ashamed to say. There was not one that handled better or was even close to being a better value for the price. I've had it almost a year and love it. We had an ice storm recently, and it handled great as cars were off the road all around me my whole trip. Acceleration is not nearly what my V8 Touareg was but still sufficient. Very fun to drive SUV.

Pros: handling, looks, good on snow and ice, fun to drive

Cons: gas mileage is not great, they call it technology model, but it's really a nice base with a nav. and better speakers, wish it had a heated steering wheel

Acura Mdx 2008 — The MDX Tech/Entertainment is a nice car with a smooth ride. The sound is great and rides very quiet. The GPS navigation is got a little work to get used to and not very good. Also, after having the car was less than 4 months, I am seeing the leather darken on the driver area. I have a black leather jacket and I am not sure if the leather is fading into the parchment leather. Other than that, the car drives very well and can comfortably handle 6 passengers.

Pros: Quiet ride and fast pickup. Very responsive and very solid interior.

Cons: Not sure of the interior leather and GPS needs some work.

Overall A Good Luzurious Suv — Got a great year end deal on an 08 in December 2008. Considered the Totota Highlander and the Mercedes RL. Likes: Acura/Honda reliability, great handling, looks, comfortable, luxurious, quality, generous standard amenities, drives like a sporty sedan. Dislikes: thirsty V6

Pros: Great value considering the German competition.

Cons: Poor gas mileage-but is is a SUV that can seat up to 7 so................

Great Suv! — Tons of power, lots of features... The MDX is one of if not THE best SUV in its class. We took a lot of other SUVs for test drives, including the Mercedes. We liked the MDX the best out of all. Power is great. Mileage is alright.. we get about 16mpg average, and 23mpg on the highway for longer trips. The backup camera is a great feature, however it is mounted off center-making it useless to help backing up with any sort of precision.

Pros: Tons of features, great quality

Cons: SUV fuel economy, but it is, after all, an SUV
