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.

I enjoy the Acura brand and this my second Acura. After years of driving the Vigor, I wanted another one. The MDX met all my needs of space, technology, and comfort. Because my wife is short in statue, the MDX puts her higher and improves her visibility of the road and cars around her.
overall great car

I can't wait to drive it again. It's just that fun to drive for an SUV.
