I have a 2008 and I love this SUV. I've owned a Highlander, Explorer and a Redeo and this truck is by far the best. Granted it is a better quality to begin with. Handling for a SUV is great. Fast, comfortable and gets 21MPG combined city/highway around Tysons Corner VA.

Purchased an 08 MDX, with 45K on it, drives like a dream, has Nav., DVD in the rear, and the power tail gate. Seats are very comfortable, the heated seats are wonderful, not too hot, just right! My wife loves being seated higher than the 4 door Infiniti that we had. The controls are placed in very good positions, and the suv has no rattles or noises at all. Going down the highway, the car is very quiet, all in all a very nice suv, just wish it got a little better gas mileage.

I had my MDX for 2 years now, and so Far Love it. Love all the Features the easy Navigation, Stereo System, the Remote Control Left gate, I am also starting to use many of the Voice commands(very Cool. I had no issues with my MDX at all. the Super handling 4 wheel drive system is GREAT and sure footed on Colorado Snow and Icee roads. I learned to trust this SUV in adverse weather conditions.

I have owned a 2000 Lexus RX 300, 2004 Acura MDX, 2006 Toyota 4 Runner and now the 2008 Acura MDX for a month and I love the car since I first had it as a loaner. It is a vast improvement over the previous MDX models (prior to 2007). The handling, speed and interior design are awesome. Love the manual/automatic transmission. The sound system, navigation system and HFL are also extraordinary. Would buy this car again in a heartbeat and would recommend this vehicle to anyone who loves driving and wants an awesome (did I use this word yet?) experience!

MDX - I'm loving it

Purchased a 2008 MDX a little over a month ago but have been putting it through its paces and love it! The body style has changed slightly since 2008, have added a roof rack and will be adding running boards soon. Needed a vehicle with 3rd row seating, luxury feel and good resale without being to big or truck like for my wife to feel comfortable driving. This is a perfect fit! Handles great, quick, love the AWD. We took it on a road trip 3 weeks in and it was so comfortable and nice for a 1,000 mile drive. The MDX looks great, drives great, handles, and comes equpeed. After MUCH searching it was a no-brainer. I also considered BMW X5 and Audi Q5 and Q7.

The ACURA MDX is a keeper!

I owned 2 BMWs before the Acura. While I really enjoyed my 3 series Bimmer and X3, I have got to admit the Acura MDX is in a class of its own. It is the best value for money and comes with sufficient label prestige to boot. When I signed on the dotted line for the Acura, I felt I was giving up some prestige going from the Bimmer to the Acura, but that lasted only till I left the dealership and drove home. The first ride made me forget my buyers remorse and I was all excited to show of my new toy. The ELS surround sound is the best I have heard in a car! I consider myself an audiophile and have a 3 dedicated 7.1 systems (Canton, Klipsch and Sunfire systems) in my house complete with a home theater but when it comes to car audio this one takes the cake! If you are thinking about an SUV this should be on your list to test drive.

Excellent Vehicle

by from Mcallen, TX on March 21, 2011

MDX is a phenomenal vehicle. Luxurious, great performance for an SUV, reliable, and about the best resale value you can find. Third seat is not very accessible when 2 carseats are in 2nd row.

Great SUV

by from Va on March 19, 2012

Excellent all around suv...fast and sure handling. Exterior styling leaves something to be desired and gas mileage not favorable.

I went from a 05 Infiniti G35 to the 08 MDX to accomodate my 3 kids when we travel. The kids love it. It's comfortable with lots of leg room. My 5yr old love the 3rd row seat. I highly recommend this car for family with small children. The only bad thing I would say about this car is the gas mileage on it when I'm driving in the city. Other than that it's wonderful!

I am very hard to please driver , I did drive Mercdes M, BMW X5, and other SUV , By far this is the best driving machine ! It combined easy handling (when driven by my wife)and will satisfy the aggresive driver as well . The sound system is superior, I actually enjoy it more than my Bose surround system at home , It is packed with so many advanced tech features that is not even advertised by Acura !! I feel lucky having taken that test drive , I ended up in getting the 2008 MDX with sport/techn/ rear DVD , my only take on Acura is that the parking sensors are not standard ..but even after spending $600 on these sensors , Its an excellen deal . even compared with other SUVs in the $$75,000 range ...
