The Car Connection Expert Review

With a few notable flaws in styling and features, the 2011 Acura MDX still impresses us with its friendly handling and gutsy power.

The 2011 Acura MDX is a seven-passenger, three-row luxury crossover vehicle. It puts its best foot forward with strong acceleration, a comfortable cabin and in great safety performance--while downplaying any extreme off-road ability.

However, it’s also an entertaining vehicle to drive and, despite some odd exclusions on the features list, a supremely confident family vehicle with a stellar safety record.

Pricing begins around $43,000 and reaches beyond $50,000 for fully outfitted versions. The MDX competes against luxury crossovers like the Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT; the Volvo XC90; and the Buick Enclave.

Poor interior quality and high maintenance vehicle. Its value is not that of the brand it represents. Local dealer is not very good either. Moving to MB or Lexus this year

I have owned many Acura MDX's (03,06,10 & 12) and the SLX prior to them. This is by far the best one I've owned. My only disappointment is the lack of additional power since I tow my sports car to the track... + More »
