OK, was expecting much more for 50 grand. Biggest disappointment is nav-still use my phone, yet paid big bucks for what I thought would be luxurious, it is cumbersome & unuseful- never never use, sad technology. Radio reception can be shaky, connection light goes in & out(including volumn)-I live in metro area & should be clear as a bell. I am frustrated because what I read was so stellar on the MDX, car of the year. I realize I am fussy but I thought I was paying for that. Not so. Also don't like I can not have digital speedometer, only old school dash-not sure what happened here but I am wanted high end luxury, you can't even tell what kind of car it is from the side. I literally was confused when I first bought this car- is it too much to ask to put ACURA or MDX on the side of a car--CARS LOOK SO MUCH ALIKE FROM THE SIDE- WHITE SUV---MAKE IT SPECIAL--DUUH. Do not feel special in the least driving this car, what has happened to that's a cool looking car. Bottom line I would not have spent the extra money on an acura, it's not that great. Unfortunately, this is my dream car for a long time. What I like is the engine it does have power, but- the keyless entry is defective too- at times I have to find the fob to lock or unlock-perfection has not been found in the 2015 MDX in my opinion, what's better? that verdict is out

Mostly satisfied.

My 3rd Acura in the last 25 years. 1st was a 94 Legend - was a great car. Next was a TL - not so great. This MDX will be my last. Owned for 16 months and driven 13000 miles. Excessive road noise. Driving on rough roads difficult to carry on conversation with person in the middle seat. My 2 year old grandson can draw a better picture than the back up camera gives. It is totally worthless. Navigation is extremely poor - use your phone. Complained about issues at each service appointment but all I get is that will tightened this or that and see how it is until next time. Other words, kicking the can down the road till warranty is out. I did go visit local BMW dealer this past week - anyone want to buy a slightly used MDX?

2015 MDX Tech Package- AWESOME!

My wife and I have owned several SUV's both large and small and when looking to replace a GMC Acadia we were having a tough time finding a small SUV with a 3rd row seat that had all the features and benefits of the Acadia. After looking at many different manufacturers and not wanting to go back to a GM product due to repair and breakdown issues we settled on the Audi and the Acura. Looking at and test driving both vehicles we both felt the Acura was more comfortable, offered better visibility and had a nicer interior. We went with it and the MDX has been fantastic. Definitely a 5 Star ***** vehicle. Performance, handling and overall satisfaction could not be higher.

No longer a premium vehicle or ownership experienc

This is one of the worst vehicles we've ever owned and has been rife with significant quality issues almost since we picked it up. For reference, these include: Body panels were missing attachment clips when car was delivered, quarter panel and bumper came loose. Multiple electrical issues including a bad alternator that dealer took 3 visits to diagnose. Satellite radio failed. Braking became uneven in the first year, dealer refused to address (in tolerance), now needs a brake job after <30k, abnormal tire wear, white paint comes off of car with the most minor contact (paint is thinner to save weight, per dealer), transmission shifts oddly with a great deal of engine noise (within tolerance). Aside from the quality issues, the electronics are poorly executed and difficult to use. You need to read the manual to learn how to change a radio station...and don't dare try to change audio or climate control while you are driving, its is so complicated as to be genuinely dangerous. I just had a great call with Acura customer service where I was told that I should bring the car back to the dealer and discuss all of these issues, again, with no support from Acura. This was once a great brand that produced great products, the MDX should really be out of the premium SUV category and reviewed against Hyundai, GM, Ford, and Toyota, it is premium to those products only in terms of price.

I bought a used 2015 Acura MDX. You can feel the transmission changing with every gear. At slow speeds the car feels like it is missing. Took to dealer and software was updated but still same problem. Returned to dealer and was told it had an adaptable transmission and to drive it until it got used to the way I drove. I have driven it about 2,000 miles and still the same problem. Very disappointed as I thought Acura was a great car. Has anyone else had this problem?

Well i had BMW and Audi and trust me except for acceleration, horsepower...nothing else beats Acura or lexus. You always look for efficiency, value for money, quite drive etc... So if other are complaining please drive german cars for 2 years then you will understand what you miss.. My only complain is acceleration but agreed that mileage is top class in this luxury segment...

Strange and dangerous downshift.

Be careful with the strange sudden acceleration when braking. Shifts into lower gear and lurches forward when applying break. Dealer recognizes this and tells me Acura needs to hear more complaints before addressing the problem. I'm worried a lot this during slippery roads.

I had great expectations for this car and it has been a great disappointment. Driving experience is excellent, comfy, well responsive, good visibility to the front. Poor visibility to the back when parking. Infotainment is big mess. I find using my i-phone more than car's features, because it takes so much time to enter or find any Point of interest from Acura database which is extremely poor or algorithms for searching are poorly designed. Acura owns apology to all owners for this mess and perhaps free update to fix it. It is also very slow in response and user experience requires numerous endless clicks to get to anything. I prefer hands down my GPS in 10 year old Honda Pilot EX than this new Acura. It seems that a lot of owners are furious over this infotainment fiasco. I really want to love this vehicle but in the future I will definitely look more closely at many other brands before buying another Acura.

My first MDX. Owned a TL and a TSX so familiar with the Acura style. Overall - great SUV. The most striking thing you will notice 1st is the ride. Here in N. Texas, very bumpy riding on hard concrete roads that heat crack and leave you wishing for quite & smooth blacktop. The MDX performs extremely well taking a lot of the smashing right out of the ride. The leather on the seats is the softest I've ever encountered. Handling is great with the AWD. Engine power is throaty and responsive. For improvements, the NAV is crazy. Found the best way is to just type in the address (good display for such). Trying to use the voice recognition for NAV is just stupid. You say, "Dallas, TX" and it says "Ft. Lauderdale, FL." Whatever. Also stupid is that the NAV system locks (most features) while driving. Come on! Hey Acura, there is a passenger who can NAV while driving! Any new car with a lot of features will eventually make you reach to understand the system instead of being intuitive. The NAV takes time. Once you have the address in, the NAV works great. Storage is good so long as the 3rd seats are not used. Using the seats leaves you with a small space left. Also, these 3rd-row seats are kid seats as grown ups will have a difficult time getting to them and being comfortable. I've had luck with the quality- no issues. Got a recall notice for the bolt on the compressor for AC. Easy fix they say. Dealership experience is great. Give you a free Acura loaner if your request. This is my wife's car and she loves it for herself and our daughter. In fact, my daughter always wants to take the MDX over my car.

I have owned my 2015 MDX for about 8 months so far. I have tried to love it, or even like it, but I cannot. I traded in my 2008 MDX after six years of loyal service to “upgrade” to the new model. That was a big mistake. The 2008 MDX was a great car and I loved it from the day that I bought it. It wasn’t perfect, but it was good at almost everything. The 2015 was a hassle starting on the day I drove it home. It was raining really hard outside, so we did most of the deal looking at the showroom floor model. My mistake. The salesman informed me that all models had parking sensors, fog lights, and Michelin tires and I assumed that he was correct. In fact, he had lied about all three… I got the dealership to agree to swap my tires to Michelins for free (they only come on the top of the line model now). The fog lights and parking sensors were something I should have checked, so I decided to pay for the upgrades myself. Buyer beware. The fog lights went in without issue, but the parking sensors were a joke. When you upgrade, you can only get rear sensors, not front, and they are not the same sensors that are used on the top model. My installed sensors were not flush with the bumper and they did not work. I had to back almost completely into a brick wall to make them start beeping. So a 50% success rate for dealer installed options. Not impressed. Why Acura would dream of building a $50,000 CUV, make it longer, and not include parking sensors as standard is beyond me! The changes from the 2008 to the 2015, or rather the 2nd generation MDX to the 3rd, were largely not improvements. The power to weight ratio is better on the new car, but acceleration feels anemic in comparison. The suspension is absolutely awful. I had the electromagnetic dampers on my 2008 and it was impressive in the corners! The new model feels far less confident when pushed and my front dampers have developed a constant squeak that causes pedestrians to watch my car as I drive past. The stereo in the old MDX was one of my favorite features and somehow they managed to ruin that on the new model as well. The bass response is weak at best. The touch screen controls are simply awful and make things like adjusting the fan speed for the climate control dangerous while driving. The safety features, like lane departure warning was such a nuisance that I had to disable it. The forward collision warning is dangerous. Mine would go off randomly when I wasn’t near another car! The last thing I want is for my car to slam on the brakes and cause an accident that otherwise would not happen. I spoke with the dealership about the function and was informed that sometimes metal manhole covers or expansion joints will cause the system to produce a false positive. Another safety feature that I had to disable. The materials used inside look and feel cheap. I have a black interior and much of the plastic actually appears to be dark brown. I have had people ask me about it as soon as they get into the car for the first time, so it is noticeable. Finally, the redesign has lowered the height of the vehicle, so while there is a slight increase in cargo space, I’m finding it to be less useable. Oh, I just received my first recall notice… Acura North America has been useless. To be fair, there are a few minor improvements. The cabin is generally much quieter, the LED headlights are great, and the gas mileage is better. I was previously getting 14-16 mpg city / 20-22 mpg highway and I am now seeing 19-21 city and 26-28 highway. If I could go back and undo this deal, I would! My 2008 MDX was superior in almost every way. Build quality has seriously gone downhill. I'm not sure if it's just with the introduction of the 3rd gen MDX or if it's also the assembly line moving from Canada to Alabama. If you are seriously considering a new MDX, I suggest that you take your money elsewhere. I wish I had.

My first step up.

I have had my MDX for 10 months now and have several problems that cannot be explained: The indicators for blind side vehicles will go off when no one is by them; the gas cap light will go off when nothing is wrong; the front breaking light will go off when there is nothing in front of me; and the windshield wipers will go off when it is nice and bright and sunny. I'm told at the service area that they can't find anything wrong and cannot pinpoint the problem, but will keep checking the their update sheets and if anything comes across, they will let me know. This is a safety issue as far as I'm concerned as the breaking light comes on, my reaction is put the breaks on. Also, have a problem with the windows being down at high speeds, the tailgate wants to try to pop open, you can see gaps appear along the sides. Again the service agent cannot find anything wrong. I have the heated seats and it feels as if they were never turned off, making it a little uncomfortable during the summer months. The interior is comfortable, but with a lot of road noise; handling is good and acceleration is really good. I am sorry that I spent what I did for this car. I have since traded my 2015 Acura for a 2016 GMC Acadia and am much happier with the overall performance and handling.

The 2015 Acura MDX is not a "flashy" car to the normal eye but certainly does hold its own against other luxury SUV. Handling is very light but easy to get used to. The interior is where the MDX shines, materials are very nice inside and easily accessible however having the tech package you certainly must be good with today's technology because at certain points it can feel overwhelming. Road quality if very nice as well, having owned the Audi Q7 it is very comparable. However only having 15,000 miles I cannot touch base on reliability quite yet.

I live in AZ and have had this vehicle for 14 months and whenever the temps rise above 90 degrees and the car is parked in the sun the LKAS and LDW do not work. I get a message that the camera is too hot. 10-15 minutes later, the cameras start working but by that time I am already home. I purchased this car because of these safety features but did not realize they would not work. What a waste. The voice activated navigation system is equally poor and does not recognize addresses or place names so it is another lost cause. I do not recommend buying this car for these features. On the plus side, the SUV is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. The seat hugs you, the ride is quiet and it is easy to drive. This is why I want to love this SUV but the negatives outweigh these positives. I purchased a high end vehicle specifically for these safety features and when they don't work, I end up hating the car all over again. I will not buy or lease an Acura again.

GPS and Bluetooth are unsable- get a base model

I have had my tech package MDX for over 6 months now and can confidently say that a $100 tomtom GPS beats the in-dash hands down. Boot time takes about 60 seconds. Sluggish input. Passenger cannot input an address while moving. score 0 of 10. The Bluetooth phone is horrible. People ask if I have the windows down or if they are on speaker phone. My $100 Plantronics voyager works perfectly. Also can't press any digits on touchscreen when vehicle is moving. But can use the iPhone to press # for conference calls, etc. 0/10 Save your money and get the base MDX. I do love the ride and 28mpg highway that I average. Probably the most comfortable front seats on any SUV out there. 10/10

I haven't seen anybody else mention this, but it's probably my only problem with the car since I bought it last December. If I drive the car awhile, and then park it for an hour or so, the next time I take it out, the car thermometer will read about 10C to 14C degrees higher than what it should be. As a result, the AC will then blow full blast for about 5-10 minutes until the thermometer gradually adjusts itself to the correct temperature as I drive around. For instance, it could be about 17C degrees out, but when I take the car out later, the temperature might read about 29C degrees for a little while. If it stay less than 1h there is no problem at all.

I feel like a guinea pig. I was sold a vehicle and I am the one testing it. This SUV is an amazing highway cruiser and family hauler when it's not in the garage for electronic issues. My vehicle has been in the garage for multiple two-week periods trying to fix an electrical issue and now the newest issue is the keyless entry/start system doesn't work. I can't even unlock the doors without removing the key from the fob, and I have to hold the fob next to the button just to start the car (even then you wonder if it will work). I have rattles, knocks, and electronic issues that you would expect from a $15K car but not from a luxury brand. I want to like this car, I really do.

very happy with my new MDX with 2 exceptions, one serious, the other just annoying. the serious issue, the 19 in wheels are a huge problem if you need to replace a tire anywhere but a large city. NO ONE carries the 19 in tires. i had a flat in Lake City, Fl. My choices Macon or Tpa. 200 miles in either direction. 2 closer Acura dealers did not carry the tire. 200 mi on a donut is too much. worse yet the dealer says a full size spare won't fit. Until these tires become more available I'd stay away from them. The annoying issue: the voice controls for navigation, radio etc are just flat hilarious. Call home pretty routinely either adjusts my AC or finds the closest drug store.

Very quiet - drives like a car...

Our last Acura was in 2005 - an RL. Probably one of the best autos we have ever had. Customer service was excellent. Since then, several SUVs (another manufacture) and a van for family vacations. We purchased this car about three weeks ago, and just returned from a 1,000 spring break trip with our two grandsons. Car worked great! Very comfortable - handled quite well on the interstate.

5,000 miles on a AWD MDX and the car is falling apart. First a ln annoying ticking noise that suddenly got loader and is accompanied by a sqeek. At low speeds especially when turning into my driveway there is a knocking noise that sounds like a 20 year old car losing a ball joint. When i start the car there is a rumbling noise that comes and goes. And the newest problem is a very rough downshift when slowing down to a point that you get thrown into the steering wheel. This is my first Acura i have had 6 new hondas and i am saying BYE BYE to honda and Acura forever. Their cars got cheeper and cheeper every year and i dont mean in price but quality. Take your money elsewhere, dont buy the MDX

Very good vehicle

Owned the car for about two months now. Purchased in Oregon and drove the AlCan highway up to Alaska in Feb. to where I live. This vehicle handled every bit of snow & ice thrown at it. I drove 2400+ miles, for 3+ days on glaze slick roads & never felt a slip. Very comfortable & lots of room. It drives much smaller than it is. The LED lights are very crisp & reach pretty far. The infotainment system is definitely something you have to get used to. It does so many things & is extremely complex so initially it was a little overwhelming, but after a few hours of seat time, things easy now. I drove the RX450 Hybrid, Audi Q5 & Q7, VW Touareg & Pathfinder & the MDX won us. I recommend it.

Forever an Acura Guy

Traded in my 04 Acura MDX for a 2014 Chevy Traverse, worst move ever. Bought a 2015 MDX Tech and love it. Much easier to see out of, handles like a car, plenty of power and shifts smoothly with the six speed auto. Dual screen can be a little overwhelming at first but once you get the hang of the redundant controls it is actually quite easy to operate with little distraction. LED headlights are second to none. No need to even remove the remote from your pocket, everything is operated through proximity sensors. Third row one touch entry is as easy as it gets. Interior build quality is high but there are a few little flaws. I'm 73" and wish the drivers seat went back one or two more inches.

I had an interesting experience with the 2015 MDX this weekend. After only 5 weeks with a new car and less than 1,000 miles, my car broken down. I was shocked. Suddenly, all my systems were not functioning and the computer was warning about no all wheel drive, no power steering, no LDW, etc. So, I used roadside assistance and scheduled an 830am appointment on Saturday morning to pick up my car and have it towed to the Brooklyn Acura dealer. At 9am, I was told they would tow the car at 940am. At 10am, I was told 11am. Finally, I had a tow at 11am.

Love my MDX

Purchased a 2015 MDX back in September and it's the best decision I've made. The interior is way more comfortable and functional than the previous model, the ODMD system is a bit cumbersome to learn but once you've got it, it's a snap to use and is sexy to look at as far as technology goes. I love driving this smooth piece Advanced machinery and believe its safety features will keep my family safe. There is no better purchase at this price range or higher and with as little maintenance as this is going to take, it's a keeper...

The best SUV money can buy

I've owned several Acura's and this is the best yet. The power and how the vehicle handles is amazing. Extremely quiet, spacious with amazing technology. Test drove every luxury brand and my decision remained the same. The seats are like heaven and I just love the stereo. Took her on a trip across country and wanted to just keep on driving. Really a fun to drive SUV. Added fog lights and trailer hitch and can tow the required 5K pounds (more than what I need).

My last Acura

I have owned several Acura products over the years. I traded a 2011 MDX for this new model. I can't believe how much they have cheapened up the new model. The seats are very uncomfortable, covered with low grade leather. The HD screen of the previous model has been replaced with two sub par displays. The infotainment offering is horrible, unintuitive, hard to navigate. It doesn't even have tailpipes, replaced with faux lookalikes. I have to take the key fob out of my pocket and hold it up to the handle to unlock. Overall, a very unsatisfactory vehicle.

Poor visibility in rear

Overall, I have been very pleased with my 2015 MDX AWD with tech package. After driving the car for a couple of months, I have become familiar with programming the nav and radio. My biggest concern with the model is the rear visibility. When crossing a four lane highway, stopping in the median to continue a left-hand turn, visibility is completely blocked by the rear window brace. I have experienced this a few times when the car is sitting at an angle and look to the right, you cannot see anything--very scary and dangerous.

Very Pleased with my Choice!

After being an American car guy for years, I bought my first Honda ten years ago and have since owned three. Honda's are rock solid and other that gas and routine maintenance, I've never had any other problems. I am at a point in my life where I am looking to move to the next level and considered Lexus and Infinity, but given my history with Honda I looked at the Acura's. I bought a black on black MDX with all the bells and whistles and while I have only had my new MDX for a few days, I am in love. For being an SUV it drives more like a sedan and it's very agile. The interior is top notch and the car rides extremely quiet. It's still very early but I am very pleased with the quality.

2015 MDX with Tech

I recently purchased a brand new MDX-Tech. Its a good car in many respect for a middle class family like me who can at most shell some 45k towards a 7 seater. But ACURA being a so called luxury brand, I would expect them to use some reasonably good plastic inside. My car seat hinge cover broke apart in one pull... that did not speak about the quality.

Great Vehicle at a Reasonable Price

Have had a 2015 MDX, AWD with Tech for a while. Previously had a prior generation MDX. The differences are noticeable. The 2015 is far more luxurious. The vehicle is solid, extremely quiet, and fun to drive. The interior design and materials are top notch. So far not a single negative thought about the vehicle. Performance has been exactly as promised.

Buyers remorse

I had my MDX for just a few weeks and the warning lights started going off for tire pressure, check engine, and a few other things. Brought it in and it had a computer reset. That seemed to help but come on! The computer, nav and radio voice commands are not very intuitive. You have to memorize a text book to make it functional...no thanks! I just got a "recall" notice in the mail I have been waiting for and it is just for the radio, nav and phone, not to address the other computer problem. Lastly, I get flashed every time I drive at night because the headlights Blind Every Oncoming Car...What a 50K dollar pain in the Butt!

Amazing as always

Wonderful SUV just like my previous 2! Bought a 2014 Tech realized how much I wanted the features of the advance so a year later I bought another one and I must say no problems at all, and every possible luxury feature I could ever hope for! I am an Acura client for life!

What a disappointment.

We purchased a 2015 MDX several weeks ago. The next morning, many error messages came on after starting the car - tire pressure warning, emissions system warning, transmission system warning. I was unable to drive the car. The car was towed to the dealership, we were assured it was a battery problem. We were given a new battery and left for a trip. We then drove it several hours, parked it overnight, and received the same messages the next day when we tried to start the car. Another tow, another dealership in a new state. Two weeks later, and we don't have the car back yet. Acura Client Services has been really unhelpful. I would not recommend this car to anyone.

Almost got everything right

My first car was the 2013 RDX so when a 2014 MDX redesign was coming out, I knew I had to get one. Because of the over design and value of this vehicle, two years down the road we (my wife and I) traded in our RDX, which was great, for the 2015 MDX. Fell in love with the vehicle immediately, BUT not a minute longer of driving off the lot, we started to discover little things that the quality of this vehicle is REALLY lacking. Loud adjustable seat motors, scraping noise coming from the steering wheel louder, louder then normal engine, a paint job gone bad, bad outside temperature gauge and the list goes on! Acura what have you done?
