Very nice stable of cars. Any reason why you went with the mdx over the ml? Used I would imagine they are very near the same price, and I'm sure you would have gotten a great deal on the ml considering you would have received loyalty pricing.

Congrats on the new car!

It took me about a month of visiting various dealers looking at the RRS , ML's , FX's and the MDX. The deciding factor was when someone i knew from an Acura dealer called me telling me about this MDX that they just got on a trade in and him giving me a great deal that I couldnt refuse yay

C300, 330i, MDX
My better half drives a white Acura MDX (which I actually bought at Open Road Acura in NJ.) I like it even if the third row area is kind of cramped. Hey, I don't have to sit back there and my kids are petite. It's perfect for a small family.

Congratulations. Ang galing...

Good luck and best wishes with it....check the build date. If it's before June 07, make very sure no one is tailgating you. While since then, MDXs have gotten very good overall crash test results, before June 07 production, rear impact wasn't so great.

Congratulations Elaine!! You'll love the MDX with the tech package. My fiance loves the interior when compared to the ML.

You know, it's not so heartbreaking that you still have the C300 in your stable! Good for you.

Enjoy the new one.

We are looking to upgrade my wife's MiniCooper to an SUV next year when we start looking at having our first kid and she is really liking the MDX. She really wants a vehicle that has a Hybrid option, like the Lexus SUV, but I'm not sure what she's going to eventually end up going with. It continues to change based on appearances alone (we have not test driven anything yet) and I've been wanting her to get either the new ML or the GL and she is liking the Audi and the MDX. Interesting that you chose the MDX and it appears that some other folks on this page have the same vehicle and like it. I'd be interested in your thoughts after you drive it for a couple months.

Congrats and they look great together!

Salamat We don't expect to use the 3rd rear seat much ( those days are loong gone ahem ahem if you know what i mean J/K ) but it's nice to have just in case you desperately need the extra seating !!

Really ..... ? Hmmm ... i'll be sure to keep an eye on my rearview mirror and simply floor the gas if anyone gets to close to my ummmm .... rear

Well .... the major factor for choosing the MDX was pricing which like i said i got a killer deal from an ummmm .... old "friend" but the MDX is a very nice ride and does have that 3rd row option and i do love the look especially without the new 2010 beak

'08 X5
The MDX is supposed to be one of the better driving SUVs with the SH-AWD. They put it against the X5 and handling in bends was even slightly better because of that... the X5 doesn't have an equivalent... only the X6 has it, called DPC (power to the individual wheels). Anyway, of course these SUVs drive a lot heavier overall than a passenger vehicle... all that extra weight... even bigger engines can't compensate fully.

Hey you look beautiful

The MDX must be a great ride. I think Honda has the best navigation systems. I love my stepdad's 2010 TL, especially with over 300 HP. It even has the same MPG as the W204!

Awwww thank you for the compliment .... bluushing even more now

The nav is pretty good though i heard with a so called "update" it can be improved upon since mine is a 2007 !! The 300 HP really makes a nice difference compared to the C but the one thing i wasn't expecting and am pleasantly surprised with the MDX is the nice roooar it has when i floor it

MPG .... hmmmmmm i don't even bother with trying to figure it out but i'm good for about 200 to 250 per tank so i'm happy

If the mod is what I think I see....the filled-in grille...I'd certainly be keeping an eye on the temp gauge!!

Silly goosee ........... it's actually the same OEM grill but the upper and lower parts painted black not really a huge huge difference but like i said it's a simple mod. Something i would most definitatly do if i had an 2011 mdx

My apologies for misinterpreting! It does look nice, but I'm surprised that the original grille was that solid. But, if that is how they made it originally, you certainly improved the appearance with the black paint.
