Love my acura-#5 in a row cannot imagine going w\different make -safe & confident.

I love my mdx! I love acura in general. . . I am on my 5 acura. It feels and drives like a luxury car and not being too flashy to others. Love the service I also get from acura in general. I honestly haven't had any issues or real concerns with any of my acura’s. . . Knock on wood! I cannot think of purchasing any other make for my next car.

2018 Acura mdx AWD black with tan interior leather.

2018 Acura mdx is equipped with navigation, Apple carplay, leather seats, moonroof, heated seats, lane assist, front and rear parking sensors, sunroof, everything you could ask for/need and none of the frill that you don't. Perfect family car also has third row seating and a huge trunk with the third row seat folded down.

- Christina H

The Acura is black and the car mileage spans out for a long time.

It works great and is comfortable it just is a pain to get in it and has some scratches. It is my dads car and he loves it. I have a used Honda Civic. The air conditioner in the Acura is great and it has great mirrors but it just is a bit small and cramped for 3 people trying to fit in the back and it goes very fast.
