Safety, comfort and style.
My mdx is the safest, most reliable car I have ever had! It is clearance is higher than most SUVs. This and the all wheel drive provide safety in adverse conditions. For example, during a particularly rough winter storm, I shuttled essential personnel to my workplace because their vehicles couldn't make it over the icy, rutted roads. I was rear-ended while stopped by a texting driver going 35 mph and my only injury was a slightly sprained ankle. I was able to drive away, unlike the other car. Despite the accident, we still pay less for insurance on the mdx than for our Honda odyssey. The insurance company explained it was because the mdx is so safe. Upkeep is simple. I am not good at remembering to change the oil, but this vehicle tracks the oil life, tire pressure, plus other things and reminds you when regular services are needed. I love the comfort features such as the seat warmers, driver settings memory (seat, steering wheel positions, etc. ) And radio, phone & cruise control buttons on the steering wheel. The cargo area is great and has thoughtful features like well placed tie downs. I have a towing package and pulling a trailer is absolutely no problem. My one frustration is the heating system - it will blow cold air at random times. The dealer cannot figure out why. (this may be unique to my vehicle. ) The mdx is upscale enough for the fanciest of circumstances, but is subtle enough to not seem pretentious. This has been a safe, dependable vehicle and I have no intention of getting a different car for a long time!
