Great luxury SUV for singles or families with older children.

Vehicle drives pretty smooth and steering is pretty tight. Navigation feature is nice, although not exactly the easiest to use in comparison to other vehicles with subscription based communications, such as OnStar. Backup camera is great during the daytime, but nighttime sight is limited. Third row is convenient, but really only useful for children as not to spacious. Can fit three car seats across the middle row, which is a plus. however, with rear facing infant car seats, space is limited between car seat and driver seat and passenger seats respectively. So not ideal for individuals taller than 5 ft 6 in. All in all, the mdx is a great SUV especially with the recent improvements in models 2016 and newer.

My vehicle is an Acura mdx. It is a super big and super comfy SUV.

I love the performance of my vehicle. It drives just as well today as it did when I took it off the lot. I have had some issues with my tires being punctured, but I bought some all terrain tires and hopefully that will solve the problem. I have kept up regular maintenance on it, so it is lasted for 8 years. The only things I do not like is that my armrest is made of some cheap imitation leather and the inside door handle is peeling and I have cut my finger on it a few times.

Great vehicle, needs work after 100, 000 miles.

I would absolutely love the car if it weren't over 100, 000 miles and needing some repair work. Leather interior, Bluetooth calling, great sound system, heated seats, automatic everything. There really is not anything to complain about. It drives more like a big truck than most SUVs but it is completely reliable. I haven't used it in the snow yet, since I just got it in April but I am completely confident it will get me where I need to go without any issues.

Never go wrong with Acura mdx.

Is a great family vehicle. Drives smooth, is a full time 4WD & has a lot of power even is 6 cylinder. I love the technology and entertainment & for sure the body style. Is pretty much helpful the blind spot detection & I simply love my mdx. I recommend the 3rd row seat, is no worries when you like to travel.

- Rose R

It is a well-made car with a great mix of features that feels great to drive.

My MDX is a great balance of all the things I like in a vehicle. It looks great, it's just the right size, it has enough features to be pleasant to drive, and it's easy to handle on the road. Even though ours is several years old now, it is still dependable and feels like a great car.

- Leanne C

Third row of seats is bonus and under rear storage is nice feature.

Reliable vehicle. Low maintenance costs. Third row of seats comes in handy. Extra storage under the rear is an added bonus. Very few problems with the vehicle. Good performance. Comfortable with dual seat hot cold controls. Still need a few more words to meet the minimum.

How amazing the Acura mdx is no matter any situation!

I absolutely love everything about the Acura mdx it runs great, engine is good, plenty of space for a family of 7, a/c is amazing. . The color is a gold color which is amazing, good on gas, great while traveling long distance and great heated seats for the winter. .

- Katie M

Acura mdx review, love my car!

I love the interior and the exterior of this car, really like how spacious it is. It is reliable, comfortable, great technology. It has a back camera so is easier for you to see, it helps a lot! Overall love my car good for families like mine, my kids love it.

- Rodriguez A

It's a great family SUV for those that wish to drive a stylish, sporty vehicle!

My vehicle is an Acura MDX. I like that it is roomy and luxurious. I like the leather seats, sunroof, and sound system. I dislike the outdated navigation system and the fact that the phone features are not compatible with newer iPhones.

- Lindsay O

The technology package is great.

My only complaint about my car is that it makes a whistling sound when the compressor comes on in the air conditioning. Everything else I love. I especially love that it has three seats and can seat 7 people.

- Sandra Y

It is an SUV and it is roomy inside, but it drives like a car.

There is a lot of interior room. The seats are soft and comfortable. It is an SUV, but it feels like driving a car. The maintenance on the car is expensive because it has to be done at an Acura dealership.

- Charlie Y

This is me!! All Round it's great.

LOVE the color i was able to get the shade of green I wanted. There is plenty of room. I rides great and haven't had any issues other then regular maintenance. I do wish gas mileage was better.

- Frances G

2011 Acura MDX is a reliable car

I have really enjoyed my acura mdx. It is very reliable and has very few issues. I like that it has a 3rd row of seats, however, I wish the 3rd row was slightly larger.

- heidi k

The most important thing about my car is that it has 3 rows.

I like the car because of the 3rd row and the heated seat. I dislike the car because the gas is to much money. I dislike my car because the leather is coming off.

- Holly N

that it runs very good for an old car. it still feels brand new even though it has lots of miles. i love it. It's a life saver.

i like that it drives smoothly. it has lots of room for my long legs. the air conditioning is great. the only thing i dislike about my car is that guzzles up gas.

- reyes M

It's a classy family car. If I could, I would buy a second Acura MDX in a different color (currently have a black vehicle).

Our Acura MDX is our go-to "toting-kids-everywhere-family-car" without that mini van look and feel. We're happy with the spacious interior and it's performance!

- Mel D

Has great back camera and lane sensors.

Drives smoothly, big enough for my family but not too big. GPS screen is big and easy to use. Exterior and interior is eye catching. Gas mileage is decent.

- Hen A

It has plenty of storage room. If someone needs plenty of room to haul a large family or even a dog there is plenty of room seats folded up or down

I love the third row seat in the trunk space when both rows are folded down. It does great in the snow and has a good feel on dry pavement

- Lori S

Third row of seats is nice feature and comes in handy. .

Very reliable, low maintenance. The third row of seats is a nice plus. Plenty of storage. Rear seat folding down gives even more storage.

- Scott L

The mdx is a good sized vehicle for the price.

This car has one of the highest safety ratings for its type on the market today.

Like: luxury! Drives great. Perfect size. SUV yet feels like a luxury car. Seat warmers! Nothing to dislike.

That's it's comfortable & always reliable. I've had 5 Acura's in the past

Solid car, uses too much premium fuel

Very luxurious and safe drive, but it uses too much premium fuel. Good in winter terrain and a solid car.
