Pros: Acura's NAV, she gets me where I want to be
Cons: The running boards
Advice: Gas consumption is lower on averaged mixed use than posted.I went for Acura's extras in the MDX. A towing package in the 4500 lb.+ range. The package included an upgraded cooling system for my desert play and the towing of my sailboat is a stable breeze down the road. Nice ride.
Pros: Voice command navigation and audio/climate control.
Cons: No bottle storage in front door pockets.
Advice: This is a great LUXURY SUV.This vehicle has it all: GPS Navigation, XM radio, On-Star, Homelink, Bluetooth Hands Free Cell Phone Link, good looks, great ride, and heated seats! Unfortunately, the On-Star cell phone system is not compatible with Verizon so cannot use the much more reasonable Verizon family share plan with the On-Star cell phone. On-Star wants about $0.30 per minute to use their system.
Pros: Navigation system
Advice: Test drive it, you will be sold.This is my dream car, has great navigation system. The car was built right, but I do not know about the maintenance crew. I have heard some horrible stories. I hope when I take my car in for 17000 mile maintenance, they do a job which is specified by Acura.
Pros: Navigation system and handsfree link
Cons: its body shape
Advice: Look at the competition first and you'll come back to this vehicleHANDLING IS SMOOTH AND HIGHLY EFFICIENT. POWER IS THERE WHEN NEEDED, FUEL MILEAGE IS VERY GOOD FOR A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE. LEATHER SEATS ARE COMFORTABLE, CONTROLS ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE. With a top notch navigation system and an incredible handsfree link, (where you can receive and make calls thru your own voice recognition system without your cell phone) you are in the ultimate vehicle.
Pros: automatic seat and mirror positioning using key fob
Cons: premium gas and lack of automatic moon roof feature
Advice: great vehicle and very safeAbsolutely love it. Had a Lexus RX300 and GX and this vehicle surpasses both!
Pros: NAV & Smooth Luxurious ride
Cons: Inadequate space to rest your left foot while driving & Have to use High Grade Gas
Advice: Very nice ride, but expensive to gasI really loved the handling of the vehicle and smooth quiet ride it delivers. I was not interested in the NAV until I got a demo and saw the awesome capability.
Pros: Hands-Free Link and voice command navigation.
Cons: Doesn't have electric rear hatch.
Advice: Buy it...you'll love it!!Absolutely awesome! Has all the bells and whistles and is truly a luxury SUV. Comfortable ride, makes heads turn in the parking lot, and fun to drive.
