2008 Acura MDX
I’m actually surprised at how much I like this vehicle. The trans makes the fastest, imperceptible shifts this side of a dual-clutch unit. The engine sounds great, with loads of induction noise. Why does everyone keep saying that Nissan’s VQ is one of the best V-6 in the world? Oh no: Nissan needs to take a lesson from Honda.
;That said, the MDX has some confusing ergonomics, weak seat heaters, and high beams aimed at the stars. Great futuristic looks and decent stereo. Comfy and soft suspension, but quite pleasant to ride in. And a pretty interior despite the fake wood. Wallows a bit in comfort mode, but Sport fixes that. A really nice crossover that drives really well. I finally understand why I see so many of these things driving around.
