I haven't had any problems. Every car I have ever driven has driven a bit harsher in cold temperatures, but nothing special worth mentioning in the 08 Sport MDX.
#35 of 37 Sport vs Comfort
Oct 17, 2009 (3:29 pm)
2008 Acura MDX with Sport plus Ent- 25,000 miles.
HUGE difference in Comfort vs. Sport mode. After driving the car 25,000 miles in the regular "sport" mode I switched to "comfort" setting. The MDX went from BMW to Buick mode. Nothing wrong with a Buick but I much prefer BMW mode.
Heck, even in sport mode my MDX is "soft" compared to my friend's 2009 X5.
Now that is a real SPORT/ROUGH/FIRM ride. The MDX is very moderate in comparison and a real daily driver. If you want handling and a tight suspension then go SPORT. I would NOT skip this option now. No way.

From what I understand, there is a huge difference between sport/comfort mode. But where would a non-adjustable tech (or base) model compare. I would think it was firmer than comfort mode but softer than sport mode?
I have a tech and like the ride. It's firm but not harsh. Handles bumps much better than my BMW 330. I do wish the rear suspension were a bit quieter, but on the whole I'm happy with the ride.

I have the sport/ent. package on my 08 MDX. Comfort mode is softer than sport mode. Its kind of bouncy on rough roads if your going a little fast. Sport mode firms it up a little but to me it is no where close to the firmest of a true sports car. In fact, the MDX with the regular suspension is a lot more firm (i've driven the loaner when servicing my MDX).
