the sports car suv
Pros: Being Behind the wheel.
Cons: NoseI purchased a 2010 Mdx-Adv/Ent about a month ago, before that I had spent countless hours on the Internet, along with test driving 5 other vehicles before making my final selection, they included 2 from Germany, 2 from the US. and 1 other Japanese/American. What set this vehicle apart from the others? I had to choose based on 4 categories, price, quality, dependability and driving excitement and when I added them all up the 2010 Mdx came out on top. First off lets talk $,between MSRP and my actual out the door price none of the other 5 could come close with the exception of the Enclave with 0% finance, my Mdx came in at .9% the 2 German and other Asian came in between 3.9 and 5.9% not to mention my MDX $150. over sticker. Second-comes quality, cut, fit and finish...seat comfort, materials used all said and done on par with imports costing 14-18K more, top notch materials used all around. Third-Dependability check out the reports from the #1 consumer mag.enough said. Finally driving excitement,this chassis was built to be driven,Acura fine tuned this suspension on Germany's famous Nurburgring test track and it shows, this suv wants to be driven, this you can do while being supported in comfort along the way.
Not so sure
Pros: Seat comfort
Cons: Nav/phone is hard to figure out (might just be me); 3rd row seat and not much cargo room when up.Bought brand new 2009 MDX - needed luxury sport utility to seat 7 with fold down rear seat; didn't want V-8; didn't want non-local dealership, so that cancelled out Benz, BMW, Audi and Lexus. Not so sure if it's worth all the hype and the pricetag. Fan runs super loud; handling is fabulous - totally; comfort is awesome with plenty of leg room - and I'm tall; 3rd row seating is terrible and feels like a clostrophobic's nightmare; lots of little tics and noises when car warms up, when air is on, fan runs off and on constantly; just not sure if it's all that.
