2009 ACURA MDX
Car drives with a good road feel, responds and handles with confidence. Having driven an MDX for 10 yrs. We are please with most refinements. However, I find that there are too many controls within a single option & makes it confusing if driving: little becomes more & dangerous. The car has marginally reduced space/room in certain & noticeable areas. All in all, we are pleased with vehicle, we only hope that it lives up the durability, performance & stamina of its' older brother. As with most car owners, gas mileage is less than expected & advertised.
2004 ACURA MDX
I bought the Acura mdx because my wife wanted a good awd vehicle. The downside is that it's gas mileage is around 14mpg.

2008 ACURA MDX
Love it, owned a Honda in the past and glad to be back on one. 100 Ks on it and still feels and drive like new. Plenty of HP and still a smooth ride.
2006 ACURA MDX
Bought this vehicle because of its reputation as a reliable car. Used for everyday transportation and pleasure. The searching, looking and buying process took about three to four months to find an MDX that was right for us. Be patient it takes time to find a good car.

2005 ACURA MDX
Bought it for a daily driver. This car is in amazing shape. Im proud to be the second owner and will take care of it the way it was cared for in the past.
2006 ACURA MDX
Blessed to have gotten the entertainment pkg w/the DVD player & subwoofer...checked out newer models, not only does the body style look much smaller but Acura veered away from the DVD players. My girl's love it. Think we'll stick with our 2006 for awhile!!!
2007 ACURA MDX
I bought this even w/ 149k miles, body and interior are in near perfect condition, mechanically as well. One issue is electrical, a bunch of lights and the auto-dip up/down function of the side mirrors when going in/out of Reverse seem to fluctuate sometimes over bumps, sometimes they work sometimes they don't, also it didn't come with key #2!:(
2006 ACURA MDX
We bought the MDX in part because of the extra row of seats that fold down. The MDX is roomy and comfortable. With fold down second row seats and front passenger seat you can carry 8 foot long items, and it's perfect for moving college students. It has an amazing solid ride and the heated seats are so nice on the cold mornings. Gas mileage is more accurately 14 to 16 in the city and as high as 24 on freeway road trips. .

Used Acura MDX Information
Now in its third generation, the Acura MDX is a consistently best-selling midsize three-row luxury crossover SUV. Originally launched for the 2001 model year, the MDX's attractive but subdued styling, excellent power, three-row seating and luxury have helped garner the vehicle's broad appeal. The MDX has a long history of offering excellent driving dynamics. With powerful acceleration and braking and handling that rival many sedans, the MDX is a seven-passenger vehicle for those who want to avoid the often bland formula associated with a family-friendly sport utility vehicle or minivan.
The first-generation MDX was produced for the 2001 to 2006 model years, winning the coveted North American Truck of the Year award in 2001. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, early MDX models create 240-horsepower and 245 pound-feet of torque. Tweaks to the powertrain would eventually have the first-gen MDX producing 265-horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque for the 2004 and subsequent model years. All-wheel drive is standard. Early MDX vehicles were known for transmissions problems, but Acura reworked the five-speed automatic for the 2003 model year.
The first-generation Acura MDX is rated at 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway, which was quite efficient for the era, especially for a seven-seater with strong performance and all-wheel drive.
A true luxury crossover, the first-gen MDX features standard heated leather seats, a power glass sunroof, a great sounding seven-speaker audio system, heated sideview mirrors and more.
The second-generation MDX was launched for the 2007 model year. A more powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine replaced the smaller V6, resulting in 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The second-generation MDX features Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Originally offered with the five-speed automatic, Acura fit 2010-2013 models with a new six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy for the second-gen MDX with the five-speed is 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. More recent six-speed equipped MDX models are rated at 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.
The second-generation MDX adds to the previous model's standard luxury and technology quotient with a well-equipped and technology-filled interior. An optional value-loaded Technology package includes a sophisticated navigation system and a highly praised surround sound audio system.
The current third-generation Acura MDX boasts a sharp new front fascia that showcases Acura's attractive 'Jewel-Eye' multi-LED headlamps. The third-gen MDX features a smaller and slightly less powerful, but far more efficient, 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is now standard and Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel drive is optional. The 2014 and 2015 MDX models retained the six-speed automatic transmission; 2016 models are fit with a nine-speed automatic.
Early third-gen models with front-wheel drive earn 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. SH-AWD models get 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The 2016 model achieves up to 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Acceleration is excellent, the 2016 MDX zips from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.
The newest Acura MDX earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as well as a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Like all new Acura vehicles, the 2016 MDX offers and incredible amount of standard and optional technology-based safety features.
The second-generation MDX was awarded a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS in 2007. Other models vary by year, but the MDX is a historically highly rated vehicle when it comes to safety.
