My bet would be that by the time those 6 years elapse for your wife's car to reach 200,000 miles your MDX' transmission will have failed, maybe even twice.

Just brought a 2012 MDX and prior to that I've checked out the Audi Q5 & Q7, Lexus RS, Infinity FX35, and drove my friend's 08 BMW X5:
Q5: Feelings like a different class, more like a X3 instead.
Q7: Lots of room, very nice exterior, but I've saw coupe of the CPO in the lot, looks like the interior is a bit cheap for the $ and worn out quick.
Lexus RS: Takes regular gas, a big plus, but the interior dash board reminds me of ......Toyota camry?
FX35: Best looking and very nice interior, great handling feels like a coupe sports car. But the cargo space and head room is very limited, feel more like a zdx or x6 alike.
BMX x5: Even I owned a MDX, I've to say that MDX is compatibale except the handling. BMW still feels a bit more "solid" in high speed cursing on highway. Is the badge and the a bit better in handling worth $10,000 more? Not for me. But if I'm look for a $60k+ car, I'd probably look into porsche or Range rover instead.
In summary, BMW handling is hard to beat, X5 vs. FX35 maybe?
