Whatever the other reviewer discovered about his transmission may have been an anomaly. I have driven this car over 12 months, albeit sparingly due to disability. However the one thing that impressed me was the smooth powerful shifts in the mid-range. The car takes off like a rocket between 35 and 75. The 9 forward gears make certain the sweet spot remains in effect throughout this power curve. On another issue, the car can drive itself given well defined lines, such as on well manicured interstates. By drive I mean no hands on the steering wheel. What I don't mean is it reads traffic posted speeds like a Tesla. It does have cross traffic warnings, such as when you back out of a parking spot with two huge vans on either side of you.
It's a Honda essentially so the build quality is very good. The reliability is top notch and it's super comfortable. Takes corners like a car but heavier and more robust and sure footed than a car. Comfortably holds 7 people with the rear jump seats. Comes with the tow package and great entertainment system. The Bluetooth is easy to setup and a clean and reliable functioning system without the need to restate things over and over. Heated seats (no cooling in mine) and a quick to get hot heater make it perfect for winter. AC is chilly and perfect. Split zones for climate control. Memory for seat positions. Large glove box and cubbies.
Reliability and luxury in a practical SUV
2012 Acura MDXT Laster - Owings Mills, MD01/24/2016
I recommend my MDX because it's a very comfortable truck with great handling in all weather conditions. The interior is designed well and feels luxurious. To be an SUV it is great on gas. The only feature base model does not have navigation which is fine with me, I use talking Nav on my cell. Its luxury on a budget.
