FYI I used to own a Honda CRV 2007 AWD, base model.
Plain and simple no HorsePower and Good on Gas 24 MPG.
SO now with the 2011 MDX base model I make still continue to do trips from NYC to Florida Jacksonville area and the best i am getting is 20.8PMG.
I am towing full luggage for 3 kids and 2 adults plus a all the junk for the kids.
gas consumption is not going to get any better than 21MPG. That is the bst I have gotten, the worst has been about 14MPG city driviing.

Purchased new MDX and it's giving only 12MPG in city driving. Car has done 800 miles so far. Does the average improves with more mileage?

I have a 2010 Acura MDX. I average 14.5 MPG and live in Southern California. That gas mileage is completely unacceptable, especially when we are close to $5 a gallon this past month. Average gas price has been $4.90 a gallon. I asked the dealership about this and they said that Acura overinflated the tires thus getting them better mileage. They said no one gets what Acura states on the windows. Now that all of this has come out about Kia, we need to get a refund too. How do we do it?

I have owned my 2011 MDX for a year now. I have driving the same route everyday with a few long trips in between. When I bought it, my city mileage was around 15 mpg. Now after 13000 miles and 2 services its dropped to 13 mpg. I asked my dealer in the last service and they said its the norm. Needless to say I am disappointed; I came from a 2010 Honda Pilot that used to give me 16mpg throughout.

I own a 2008 MDC with tech and mileage dropped a lot from when we bought. Live on Long Island and wife does mainly very very local driving. I didn't change air or cabin filter until this past September -- meaning didn't change for almost 4 years -- and after doing that I noticed a big change. Went back to over 20. Not saying that's you but I was suprised it mattered so much. I note we do every oil change on time.

I bought a 2012 Acura MDX in June of 2012, six months and 9,000 miles later I'm averaging a blended 18.5MPG. It's not great, but it is right inline with the estimates of 16MPG city and 21MPG highway.

i doubt it. My MDX was purchased in 11/17/2011, so far the best city mileage is 15MPG, highway from New Orleans to NYC 20.9MPG.
I am dissapointed with the mileage I get with this 2011 MDX.
I am about 18K and 16 months into the life of this car and I am not liking the mileage per gallon...Acura did not live up to expectations!
