You are in the Volvo XC90

After driving both the Acura MDX and the Cadillac SRX there was no comparison...the SRX has a MUCH better ride. It also gives us the 3rd row seat (although not for adults!) that my previous car, the 2001 BMW X5, didn't have. I have the new SRX for a week now (almost 700 miles) and just can't get over how much I LOVE this car! I was looking at the Chrysler Pacifica first because my kids loved the bucket seats in the 2nd row but just wasn't able to compromise the lack of power....and just didn't have the luxury/quality feel of my BMW. My son suggested the Cadillac which I wasn't aware of....we were sold!

I'm trying to decide between MDX and RX. did you buy the RX? If so, how does it compare to MDX outside of the 7/5 passenger thing?

No I did NOT buy the RX330 - I chose to get an Infiniti FX35. Because space was not the deciding issue here, the FX35 beat out the RX330 for our second vehicle (MDX is still the primary family car).
I must confess that part of the decision was that the RX is just "so ordinary." It has virtually no pizzaz and besides that everyone else has one.

good choice on the FX rather than the RX to go with your MDX. I wonder if there is a household on earth that is driving an MDX and an RX. That'd be pretty funny. Then, again there were houses that had a boring Buick and a boring Olds in them, so....
you gotta have ONE vehicle that has a little fun in it in the garage. And no matter much you like your MDX, it doesn't exactly say "fun" (don't get me wrong, I like the MDX, for what it is)

You said: ... no matter much you like your MDX, it doesn't exactly say "fun" (don't get me wrong, I like the MDX, for what it is).
Don't have to hedge. My MDX is like my Avalon, a real yawner to drive. Like you, I like it a lot anyway.
No, one doesn't have to have a fun car in the garage, but I do admit our PT Cruiser GT is a lot more fun to drive than the Jaguar S Type V8 it replaced.

Trying to decide between 2001 MDX and 2001 RX300. Both have 37000 miles. 2001 MDX transmission went out on test drive, getting new transmission. Wouldn't buy MDX without extended warranty on transmission to 100,000. Like MDX because more functional, but don't necessarily need extra seating. Am driving Lexus RX300 now, very nice.

Let me tell you briefly, about my 2005 MDX horror story. Let's see navigation did not work, Acura would not reimburse me for the trouble. Finally fixed after 8 months. Heater went out, 3 recalls, would not start after a week away. On Star went out. What a mess! Dont but this car. Im now trying to sell to move toowards something else, and I will take a huge loss. Even the lemon law is looking into my car. I use to love Honda/ Acura...sorry never again.

My wife and I have it narrowed down to the MDX and the RX330. We currently have no kids, but we have a "plan." I will drive the car for the next 2 years while she gets the most fun out of her Eclipse GTS (she won't part with it since it was her college graduation present to herself.) I told her that once she gets pregnant (according to the plan in 18-24 months) she will not be allowed to ride in that little pill box anymore.
So, we are buying now. I will drive the vehicle for the next couple of years, and then when she gets pregnant, she will get the roomier and safer crossover vehicle. With that said, we plan to keep the vehicle 5-7 years.
So, do we go with the RX or the MDX to suit both of our needs as we think to the future? Gladly listen to any comments.
