- Safety, Comfort, Handling
- Awkward climate controls
After driving my MDX for six months, I still wouldn't trade it for any other vehicle. It drives as smooth as silk, has exceptional handling and comfort, and has exceeded my expectations.
I consistently get 20.6 MPG in mixed driving, which is acceptable to me for a 7-passenger vehicle with this type of control, power and comfort.
I bought this car in the summer and had a blast with it, but it really paid off in winter driving. living near Portland, we encounter a lot of heavy rain and a bit of snow and icy roads. No worries in the MDX. It eats up rain, snow and ice. I feel so secure in this car.
A couple of minor annoyances to me are the fan controls having to be accessed through the navi monitor screen (or through voice command), and the fact that the bluetooth is not fully compatible with my Treo 650. Pretty small issues compared with the overall quality, safety and comfort of the vehicle.
But, speaking of the Navi system -- it's one of those things that you never thought you would need, but now is essential. I use it frequently, and can drive in new areas with confidence (just click the "Home" button!). It's intuitive and very complete, including the Zagat rated restaurant listings.
I spent a long time looking at the BMW, Lexus and Infiniti, but I made the right decision for me. If you are looking at the others, make sure you drive the MDX, too.
