The Car Connection Expert Review

Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

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 7-seat utility vehicle that shares some running gear with the Honda Pilot. It offers a plush cabin and strong crash-test performance, though there's not much in the way of off-road capability.

The MDX is the rare big utility vehicle that's also rewarding to drive. Despite some odd exclusions on the features list, a supremely confident family vehicle with a stellar safety record.

Prices for the MDX start at nearly $43,000 and climb over $50,000 for highly optioned versions. Among its rivals are the Lincoln MKT and Ford Flex, the Buick Enclave, and the Volvo XC90.

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
