If you like HD radio or any other sort of decent quality listening, you will not want to buy the MDX. Listen to the Bluetooth first and then ask why they have not done anything to make the sound at least as good as whats in the other Acura models. Its so blurry / dull that you can barely understand a conversation while driving at low speeds. They port the sound through the AM channel of the radio and as such the AM radio sounds piss poor as well. Just check it out. Thats all I'm saying. I own a 2005 MDX and made the mistake of buying a newer one thinking it should be at least as good as the 2005 and there are so many things that still are not as good as the older models.

Youdrive, thanks for the insight. I haven't found a bluetooth solution I liked yet. While not critical, its important to me. My wife had a loaner X3 and for fun I tried the phone link through bluetooth and thought it wasn't half bad. Last night she told me she was more interested in an X5 than an MDX, so we'll have to see. Off to reading more posts on X5s...

Lou, I'm in a similar situation, though with a base MDX model just purchased. Was wondering if anyone else has thought of getting dealer installed backup sensors v. getting a third party camera.

Just got the back-up sensors installed from the Acura dealer on my base 09 MDX. Love it and they actually did it very professionally. The two outside ones are actually body colored and the inner three are in the same color as the molding of the back bumper. It costs about $800 but I got it wrapped in the cost of the vehicle.
Also got the body side moldings and chrome side step bars put on it and let me tell you it looks like a nice, sophisticated SUV now. It was plain-sided which was the only thing I didn't like about it. Situation fixed.
To those that want to put a grill guard or something crazy like that - please do so and take the Acura symbol off the back for us because that is way out of character for an Acura. I'm just saying.
#532 of 552 replacing an 09 MDX foglight bulb?
Dec 08, 2009 (3:11 pm)
I'm having a tough time replacing the bulb from the foglight housing. My goal was to switch out the dull yellow foglights to a better golden light output. I followed the instructions to a T but I seem to get stuck on where to pull, yank, or push the inner fender apart. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.
