Great car except for two areas. The transmission shifts very hard in the lower gears and the tech package,navigation, radio, a/c controls are clumsy to operate and use a lot of electricity. Had to replace the battery after 19months.

Waiting for the lease to be over

Good power and that’s basically the only thing this car has to offer. I had 2015 Pilot before, thinking that going to MDX was an upgrade. In reality not so much. Interior is cramped. No window opening in the back tailgate. Not much storage in it vs Pilot. Bunch of electric issues. I work in IT for a living but I tell you this car has too many buttons in console. Turning on AC is like launching space rocket. Overall bad interior design all together. Another issue is sluggish transmission. In a parking lot or a mall going to reverse and forward just drive you crazy. For the money this car cost, there are better options out there.

First time I've purchased a Acura vehicle

Car is solid and runs very smooth. A very comfortable vehicle. Thank you !!! Hoping it turns out to be a car with minimal issues.
