Used 2010 Acura MDX Advance in Dulles, VA
Reviews for 2010 Acura MDX
Good Value for the money..but bumpy ride
I purchased my 2010 MDX base model in July 2010. I had previously an 03 TL and really loved the quality of an Acura. I love all of the standard equipment that are actually options on higher priced vehicles. Everything like HID headlights, sunroof, leather, memory seats/steering wheel, power steering column, heated front seats, 3 row seven passenger seating, 3 zone climate control system, back up camera integrated in rearview mirror, power tailgate, heated turn signal side mirrors. Some people get on Acura for the designs of the front end of the vehicles (mostly the grills). It doesn�t bother me, its unique, who wants a vehicle that looks like everyone else�s. My only issue with the MDX is the ride quality. I find the ride to be very bumpy, does not handle any bump/pot hole in the road well at all. The steering becomes very jerky and the car will jolt heavily when going over a bump. For being a midsize crossover, it definitely drives more like a large SUV. I have read articles online where others have complained about this issue as well. They describe the vehicle like they were driving a tank, or they felt like there was no suspension. If the road is smooth, the ride is perfect. Any imperfections in the road though will clearly be felt. Living in the Midwest, we deal with snowy winters. The SH-AWD system handled well. Being that power is sent to all 4 wheels always, I did not experience any of the delay in reaction timing I have with other AWD vehicles where those vehicles had to sense tire spin before it would engage the other tires. I would not describe the MDX like driving a sports car as some have. Just because it has SH-AWD does not make it handle like a sports car. All in all, it�s a good vehicle. If you live in an area that has quality roads, definitely consider this. If you are from an area that deals with the changing of seasons resulting in pot holes, take it for an extensive test drive before making your final decision.
Great crossover vehicle.
Smooth and quiet ride. Well appointed and handles like a sports car.
The moment I saw this vehicle, I wanted to test drive it. Once I took it for a test drive, I wasn't interested in looking at anything else. I wanted a larger vehicle, an SUV, for my wife. Safety and comfort were my two biggest priorities. After extensive research, the MDX is one of the best SUV's on the market, not to mention Acura is Honda's luxury vehicle. That cemented the deal for me. I've had Honda vehicles all my life and they are quality cars with engines that last forever. I wanted a vehicle that can accommodate a growing family like mine. My wife is pregnant with our first child and I wanted something safer than the Ford Fiesta we had for the last few years. Low and behold, this is the most comfortable car we have ever owned. It feels like driving a Lazy Boy every where we go. It's fantastic! We took a drive to New York to visit family and normally takes about 4 hours - this time took 6 hours (traffic) and we didn't care because of the comfort of the car. The price was about right after doing our research. We could have settled on a CR-V or Pilot, but the comfort quality was no match for the MDX. The style and drive is great. I trust this car to protect my family and that's my number one priority. WE LOVE IT! Recommending CarMax is a whole other issue - service is terrible and undeniably slow. I would recommend the MDX to anyone.
