OK, was expecting much more for 50 grand. Biggest disappointment is nav-still use my phone, yet paid big bucks for what I thought would be luxurious, it is cumbersome & unuseful- never never use, sad technology. Radio reception can be shaky, connection light goes in & out(including volumn)-I live in metro area & should be clear as a bell. I am frustrated because what I read was so stellar on the MDX, car of the year. I realize I am fussy but I thought I was paying for that. Not so. Also don't like I can not have digital speedometer, only old school dash-not sure what happened here but I am wanted high end luxury, you can't even tell what kind of car it is from the side. I literally was confused when I first bought this car- is it too much to ask to put ACURA or MDX on the side of a car--CARS LOOK SO MUCH ALIKE FROM THE SIDE- WHITE SUV---MAKE IT SPECIAL--DUUH. Do not feel special in the least driving this car, what has happened to that's a cool looking car. Bottom line I would not have spent the extra money on an acura, it's not that great. Unfortunately, this is my dream car for a long time. What I like is the engine it does have power, but- the keyless entry is defective too- at times I have to find the fob to lock or unlock-perfection has not been found in the 2015 MDX in my opinion, what's better? that verdict is out

The seating is not as comfortable as my Acura 2006. Long distances I get tired. Cargo space small. Gas mileage great.

My 3rd Acura in the last 25 years. 1st was a 94 Legend - was a great car. Next was a TL - not so great. This MDX will be my last. Owned for 16 months and driven 13000 miles. Excessive road noise. Driving on rough roads difficult to carry on conversation with person in the middle seat. My 2 year old grandson can draw a better picture than the back up camera gives. It is totally worthless. Navigation is extremely poor - use your phone. Complained about issues at each service appointment but all I get is that will tightened this or that and see how it is until next time. Other words, kicking the can down the road till warranty is out. I did go visit local BMW dealer this past week - anyone want to buy a slightly used MDX?

My wife and I have owned several SUV's both large and small and when looking to replace a GMC Acadia we were having a tough time finding a small SUV with a 3rd row seat that had all the features and benefits of the Acadia. After looking at many different manufacturers and not wanting to go back to a GM product due to repair and breakdown issues we settled on the Audi and the Acura. Looking at and test driving both vehicles we both felt the Acura was more comfortable, offered better visibility and had a nicer interior. We went with it and the MDX has been fantastic. Definitely a 5 Star ***** vehicle. Performance, handling and overall satisfaction could not be higher.

This is one of the worst vehicles we've ever owned and has been rife with significant quality issues almost since we picked it up. For reference, these include: Body panels were missing attachment clips when car was delivered, quarter panel and bumper came loose. Multiple electrical issues including a bad alternator that dealer took 3 visits to diagnose. Satellite radio failed. Braking became uneven in the first year, dealer refused to address (in tolerance), now needs a brake job after <30k, abnormal tire wear, white paint comes off of car with the most minor contact (paint is thinner to save weight, per dealer), transmission shifts oddly with a great deal of engine noise (within tolerance). Aside from the quality issues, the electronics are poorly executed and difficult to use. You need to read the manual to learn how to change a radio station...and don't dare try to change audio or climate control while you are driving, its is so complicated as to be genuinely dangerous. I just had a great call with Acura customer service where I was told that I should bring the car back to the dealer and discuss all of these issues, again, with no support from Acura. This was once a great brand that produced great products, the MDX should really be out of the premium SUV category and reviewed against Hyundai, GM, Ford, and Toyota, it is premium to those products only in terms of price.
