DO NOT BUY THIS CAR IF YOU LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS!!

DO NOT BUY THIS CAR IF YOU LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS IN THE WINTER !! I bought this car less than a year ago . At first the tires were screeching. I was told by the dealership that is normal and an issue that Acura is addressing and it would go away. It has gone away. I bought the car because I wanted the SNOW mode and luxury of...

Great car!

The car is very well made with a lot of features. Acura did not cheapen up with this car. I’m very happy with it. I highly recommend this car. I have had 2 other Acuras before and they are highly reliable.

2023 Acura MDX review: Our expert's take

By Carl Malek

The 2023 Acura MDX continues to embrace its role as the brand’s flagship SUV thanks to its combination of style and performance. The MDX carries over into the new model year mostly unchanged but adds all-new maintenance and warranty services to enhance the ownership experience for buyers. Acura has also raised the MDX’s price of admission to $50,745 (all pricing includes destination).

AcuraLink Shines Light on Enhanced Services

Standard AcuraLink service has been added to the 2023 MDX, providing new buyers with three years of free access. AcuraLink comes bundled with several services including security and remote features.

In addition to AcuraLink, buyers will also get an all-new Acura Maintenance Package that includes complimentary maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first). The plan comes with oil and filter changes, tire rotations and multi-point inspections, and it can be transferred to new owners while it’s still active.

Performance for the 2023 MDX still comes from a choice of V-6 engines. A 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 is standard and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, Type S models get a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 good for 355 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available; the Type S is AWD only. MDXs with FWD get an EPA-rated 19/26/22 mpg city/highway/combined; AWD models drop highway and combined figures by 1 mpg, while the Type S gets 17/21/19 mpg.
