Software can't be updated

My 98 explorer was totaled in a wreck and so I needed a new vehicle. I was excited to find a used 2008 Acura MDX. I love how it drives, it's comfortable, and I was excited to have bluetooth! However the software in the vehicle is not compatible with new smart phones and it cannot be updated. I was bummed since that was a feature i was looking forward to having in a newer vehicle

Sleek, spacious and lots of extras on this 08 Acura mdx.

My Acura really is a good and safe car. My husband and I researched for a while before we decided on this make and model of car, and it has one of the highest safety ratings on the market today. It is very spacious and has a lot of perks that my husband and I enjoy as adults, as well as a lot that our children enjoy when they are riding in it.

- Jill N

A vehicle that runs brand new.

My vehicle has many miles on it and it still runs like brand new. The sleek leather and outside appeal is very attractive. I love the sunroof and seat warms. I have 3 rows of seats so I can fit many people. My front panel near my steering wheel is a big screen filled with information about my car. It runs very smoothly.
