Classic luxury SUV with comfort and function.

2012 Acura MDX Base

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.

All wheel drive vehicle makes it feel safe and secure.

2012 Acura MDX Base

I enjoy the handling of the car since the standard is all wheel drive. The car feels reliable and safe since it is an all wheel drive car. I also enjoy the space of the car where it is roomy and spacious inside. The 3rd row could use improvement on the space capacity though, currently it is too small and too upright. Only accommodating to small children not grown adults.

Good performance fun ride needs USB plug ins

2012 Acura MDX Base

Very good performance I have not had many issues with this car. My main issue has been the tires. I was always putting air in them. I had to have the rims sanded down to remove rust corrosion and that finally stopped the air from leaking. My kids play hockey so I'm hauling hockey bags in and out of the back, their are large areas where the paint has chipped off.

It's awesome! This vehicle is very easy to clean.

2012 Acura MDX Base

It's really reliable. I enjoy driving this car because it is comfortable and has all the features I could ever want or need. The performance is phenomenal and I'm very impressed. This vehicle takes me wherever I need to go on any given day. I would most likely purchase this vehicle again.

Acura Mdx car review. Good running car

2012 Acura MDX Base

Overall pretty good running car Nothing major has broken down yet. It's get me to work and back without issue. Would make a great family car. Looking to upgrade in the foreseeable future. Affordable and trustworthy overall though. Would recommend to someone seeking a new car or upgrade

It is just the right size and it is perfect.

2012 Acura MDX Base

My car is really nice. It is a smaller car. It is grey. I love my car. I like that it is comfy. It has leather seats. It is perfect. It is really nice. It is black inside. I like that it has not too much room but just enough. My car has a lot of extra space.
