#31 of 56 2014 MDX: US vs Canadian Pricing and Feature Content
Jun 19, 2013 (4:49 am)
If you want to get some MDX features (SVCS) you will need to drive north to Canada and pay a hefty price differential ( link title ) and buy the Elite Package, or wait 1-2 years when I predict SVCS will be available at US Acura dealers.
OR, go to your local Infiniti JX35/QX60 dealer and check out the Around View Monitor system and the JX35/QX60 up close and personal. Check this link: link title and this: http://www.nissan-global.com/EN/TECHNOLOGY/OVERVIEW/avm.html

"The 2014 Acura MDX will arrive in showrooms on Thursday, a few weeks earlier than originally expected.
American Honda did not explain the reason for the early launch of the 2014 MDX, but the automaker is clearly ready to see its redesigned crossover do battle with such competitors as the 2013 Buick Enclave and 2013 BMW X5."

Received email from Acura yesterday which stated that they are available so stopped by local dealer tonight. They received 6 and sold 3 already. They have 1 FWD. Does anyone know what this forest mist green resembles? Will go by dealer Monday to drive one. I am still driving my '07 MDX which replaced the '04 which replaced the '01 that my son-in-law is still driving.

For colors and other stuff go to Acura's website (click on next to last color box for Forrest Mist Metallic = charcoal green?): link title

Charcoal green sounds nice; thought it might be a dark grayish-green as in mist. I went to the Acura site but the examples arent't very good. My MDX is Dark Cherry and the site rendition is a shade or so lighter than it really is

I'm in Canada and made an advance purchase on a Navi package (different configurations here) with black exterior and parchment. I prefer the greystone interior since it is more neutral but that only comes on Blue exterior for some reason in Canada. I'm wondering if anyone has seen the parchment interior in person. My fear is that it is quite yellow and that there's a whole lot of it throughout the vehicle. Some of the pictures I see online make it look a bit muted (which I want) and others make it quite vibrant - such as the ones on the build and price applet.
Look forward to hearing your impressions.
#38 of 56 Advanced to get Ventilated Seats?

I really want the ventilated seats but I don't need the entertainment system. Can I get a Tech package with the vent seats as an add on?
#39 of 56 Is SVCS + Surveillance Mode in MDX's future?
Jul 22, 2013 (8:25 am)
Hopefully, when the Surround View Camera System is available in MDXs at US Acura dealers in 6-18 months (currently only available on 2014 MDXs at Canadian Acura dealers), it will include a surveillance mode like Ford just announced it will put on new Ford police cars (check following video) (link title), but has obvious civilian applications and security benefits, and also be able to be activated by and viewed on your smart phone as you approach your parked MDX (especially on a dark nite).
Hey Acura, when will you make this happen?

Maybe so but why Accura did not bother adding Lumbar support to the passenger seat. That was a killer for me since I plan to use it for long trips and my wife won't come near a car without it. Even a manual one would have been sufficient.
