#8485 of 13278 Buy MDX? Think again!
Jul 27, 2009 (10:18 pm)
I'm currently owner of a 2006 MDX but I guess it will be my last Acura vehicle. I bought it because I have very good experience with my 10 year old Accord. But this MDX really let me down.
Last week, it suddenly lost the steering power while my wife was driving with my 17 mo baby and she had to do an emergency stop at the road side. Even now, I cannot help myself thinking what would happen if it were on a highway. Every time I think of this, I feel very scared. When the tow truck came, the driver noticed that the crank pulley broken and falling on the ground. Note that this vehicle only has 26k in its odometer. I told the driver it's unthinkable for an Acura. The driver shrugged and said he just towed another 2009 Acura 2 days ago with the same problem.
This is not the 1st time we have problem with this MDX. It has given us annoying problems here and there in the past 3 years. For example, air conditioning system failed within the 1st year and the dealer has to replace the whole pipes.
So think again if you want to buy MDX.

It is my understanding that the marketing support is only $2K and that Consumer Reports is mistaken. Your quote seems inline with various other quotes I've seen.
I may be wrong, but I believe that to be the case.

#8490 of 13278 Installing Rear View Camera & Entertainment Pkg
Jul 28, 2009 (3:59 pm)
I am planning to buy a 2009 MDX and wondering if I should buy the base model and get rear view camera and the entertainment package hooked up outside as I don't need the nav system.
Has anyone done this and is it worth the effort in terms of cost savings in exchange for not getting these from Acura?
Any suggestions will be very helpful.

I bought mine last weekend at the price of $39,600. It is higher than what I was expected, but within the range I am willing to buy.

Checking several dealers - indicating low supply and high prices vs a couple months ago. Base models around 38; not even very interested in talking to buyers. Anyone else seeing same or finding dealers still interested in dealing?
Hate to buy a Highlander, but driving me that way!

I was trying to buy a Highlander, but experienced exactly the same as your mentioned - dealers were indicating low supply and high prices vs a couple months ago. That's why I turned to MDX and purchased a MDX on last weekend.
