"We had a 2002 MDX and liked it so much in spite of the automatic transmission problem we bought a new one in 2006. It now has 94,000 miles and has had few minor issues but overall this car is so good my wife will not let go of it. It is garaged at home and work and I have changed the oil every 3500 in the engine along with the transmission every 30,000 miles. So far so good. I have a 2014 Avalon and I seriously think the Acura engine sounds better. Dealer service has been outstanding with quite a bit of good will provided by them and Acura. The handled the transmission issue in the old car painlessly and very honestly. I don't like having to use premium gas at 14 mpg city and never more than 21 highway but overall but it has been a small price to pay considering I think this engine will run forever. Resale is tremendous also. I think there is an MDX cult out there keeping the prices up."
"I bought my MDX new and had to order it because they were so new and so popular, you couldn't just buy one off the lot. It is great on snow, has a very comfortable interior, excellent leg room and interior height (my dad is 6'5" and my husband is 6'3"). I will drive it until it dies. It is 12 years old and has some door dings, but I still love it."
