Stylish, fun to drive, comfortable, reliable, and great on gas

This is there first Acura I've ever owned, and I am very happy with it. The car has 2 drive modes, regular and comfort. I am a former BMW X5 owner, and this SUV handles just like a BMW. It is stylish and fun to drive. The vehicle is great on gas and very reliable. The sound quality of the stereo is excellent, and we've never had any issue with the DVD player or wireless headphones. We are able to have the video playing in the DVD player for the kids, while still enjoying our music through the speakers. ...A win/win for everyone. The interior of the car is on par with any luxury vehicle, with wood grain and comfortable leather. The front and 2nd row seats are equipped with cooling and heating features. There�s is also temperature control in the 2nd row. The third row feature is convenient. However, it�s not comfortable enough for an adult to sit in the 3rd row for an extended period of time (ie a road trip). We've taken several road trips. The car joe has over 150,000 miles on it, and it�s still going strong. We're in the market for another vehicle and we�re considering getting another MDX.

Classic luxury SUV with comfort and function.

The mdx is a solid reliable car which drives heavy but powerful when you need to accelerate you can. Comfortable with a third row or amble storage when the seats are down. Support systems from cruise control to media are solid handsfree mobile phone bluetooth application works very well except that loading phone books from your phone is not intuitive it should be. Gas mileage is not good and requires premium gas regular repair bills are reasonable for a luxury SUV . All wheel drive is superb handling in wet weather or snow exceptional yet smooth ride on highways and interstates. Ac and heat work well acura mdx provides auto climate options comfortable heated seats . Even the base trim my model has all features I love backup camera moonroof and leather seats.

Safe, comfortable, and reliable.

My vehicle is 6 years old, but still drives like new. It is comfortable for long trips, rides smoothly, and has many great features without too many be distracting. The Bluetooth options are helpful for activating voice features, taking calls, etc. To detract from distracted driving. The only problems I have experienced are the overly complex / user-unfriendly navigation system and an air leak the driver's side window which makes a whistling sound. I feel extremely safe and comfortable in my Acura mdx.
