2012 MDX blows this away

Reviewed by UnhappyMDXowner
June 17, 2015

Previously owned a 2012 MDX which was the most amazing vehicle I ever owned. Super comfortable seats, excellent acceleration, sports car handling, not a single complaint about anything   Fast forward to trading it in for the 2016 upon lease coming to an end, I do NOT like this vehicle one bit. Doesn't handle anywhere near how the 2012 handled. Tried all 3 suspension settings, and no dice. I'm not confident behind the wheel after 2 months Acceleration seems to have a "turbo lag" effect or the old 4-barrel V8 effect... step on the gas hard and it delays a good second or two until it takes off And many times I was already going 30 - 40mph and stepped on the gas hard, only to find the vehicle winding out in the current gear for a few seconds until it finally shifted into the next gear. I don't see why a vehicle like this has 9 gears Next, the seats. Total downgrade in quality of material from the 2012 MDX. And seats are lower to the ground, not giving an SUV feeling, but more of a regular car feeling. I've tried all kinds of seat adjustments and just can't find that comfort spot Next, the dashboard stuff is ridiculous. Heated seats is now a very distracting multi-step process via touch screen, as opposed to a convenient switch to the right of the seat for Low, Off, High. Ditto for controlling fan speed, A/C and heat, navigation, and so on and so on. In the day and age of distracted drivers, this thing is nothing but a big giant distraction Finally, the safety features are the most frustrating thing I ever experienced. I am CONSTANTLY being hit with distracting and annoying beeps and flashing warnings on the dashboard. When trying to pass someone, when backing out of a parking spot, and so on and so on. Not to mention the so-called blind spot enhancer on the drivers side mirror. It makes me dizzy everytime I look in the mirror and see 2 different views of what's behind me, one normal view and one magnifying glass view Bottom line... I would give ANYTHING to trade this thing in and step back to a 2012 MDX, and would not recommend the 2016 to anyone...

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: NO
