2011 Acura MDX Tech Long Term Review
Overall a nice CUV. It gets the job done. I think the JX35 does a better
job on the luxury aspect while the MDX is a bit sportier. Which begs the
question, should a $50k crossover be sporty? After almost two years I'd
have to say no. I'd rather it be luxurious.
You can certainly pick worse cars.

2014 Acura MDX 0-60 MPH Tag Team Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Acura MDX is all new with a different
engine and unique style for 2014. Acura's best selling model has been
redesigned with an emphasis on better economy and more usable room for the
entire family. Acura has also given the luxury 7 passenger family hauler
unique jeweled-eyed headlight and of course a more fuel efficient 6
cylinder engine. Acura has kept the MDX's special Super handling
all-wheel-drive and increased the car's level of safety and sophistication.
In another fun and informative TFLcar review Emme Hall joins Nathan and
Roman in the very first ever TFLTag Team Review.

2007 Acura MDX Road Test by Edmunds' Inside Line
With its all-new Megatron-faced 2007 MDX, Acura wants the MDX to be
mentioned in the same breath as the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5. Doing so
required the new MDX to be a much hotter tamale than the lame-duck MDX in
nearly every way, so Acura endowed the 2007 model with a formidable dynamic
repertoire. Effectively negotiating the opposing tables of performance,
utility and comfort is a delicate balancing act that the smarter, buffer
MDX pulls off convincingly.

The 2015 MDX's conservative, evolutionary design is why the MDX is
instantly identifiable as an Acura. Up front we have standard full-LED
headlamps which means the MDX is one of the few vehicles on the road of any
description with standard LED beams. While Acura's signature "beak" remains
up front, it has been toned down in this generation and I actually find the
look pleasing to the eye.
The MDX is notable for being a mid-sized crossover with seven seats. This
size difference is important to keep in mind because comparisons to the
likes of the Infiniti QX56, Mercedes GL, and Lexus GX seem everywhere. The
more appropriate cross-shops are the Infiniti JX35 (now the QX60), Buick
Enclave, Volvo XC90 and maybe the Lincoln MKT.
Acura continues to stick to their formula of traditional injection molded
dashboards and plenty of convincing fake wood. I would be interested to
hear your opinions on this choice, so be sure to sound off in the comment
section below. While I like the look and the materials are premium in feel,
it can’t match the visual impact or feel of a stitched leather/pleather
dash, something that the refreshed Buick Enclave does incredibly well. The
MDX continues to do have a very uniform feel with perfect seams and gaps
and a consistent quality level throughout, something that Buick’s CUV
continues to struggle with (the lower dash and door plastics in the Enclave
are still a bit cheap.)
In 2014 Acura swapped the 3.7L V6 for the new 3.5L “Earth Dreams” mill
with direct-injection and “Variable Cylinder Management.” (VCM allows
the V6 to drop to a 3-cylinder mode on the highway.) To quell vibrations,
the MDX gets unique active engine mounts which generate vibrations opposite
to what the engine produces to cancel them out. (Think Bose noise
cancelling headphones.) Despite the DI treatment, power is down from 300HP
to 290 and torque takes a small drop from 270 to 267 lb-ft as well. To
counter the power loss, Acura put the MDX on a diet and improved low-end
torque which mean that performance is up, even with the power down.
Thanks to SH-AWD, the Acura is almost the X5′s dynamic dance partner,
unfortunately you can’t completely hide the MDX’s extra nose weight.
The MDX shines against the Infiniti QX60 with a more refined and better
performing drivetrain. Encore shoppers looking for a more premium brand and
some handling cred won’t be appointed and Mercedes ML shoppers will find
a better value in the MDX than the German. The MDX's fiercest competitor is
likely to be the forthcoming 2016 Volvo XC90 with similar dynamics, a
similar brand reputation but a fresh new product with a more fuel efficient
and powerful engine line. Join me next year for that review.

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
