    I drove one yesterday and think this may be the one for me. Any thoughts from MDX owners?

    If you can afford to fill the tank it's a great vehicle.

    Good thing is that not everybody owns one.

    Gas mileage is definitely a concern, but the MDX seems to be better than your average mid-size SUV. It is also an Ultra Low Emmissions Vehicle. It won't be an everyday driver, so I am comfortable with the gas mileage situation. Thanks for the thumbs up Brent.

    Oh and I assume you are loking at a new vehicle? Honda just recently recalled a bunch of MDXs, Pilots, and minivans for a tranny problem. I think they were all a coupla years old.

    Yeah, it'll be a 2004. This year's model has more horsepower and a few other upgrades that I'd like to have.

    Check out www.acuramdx.org if you want owner's opinions. I checked it out and its a nice vehicle. Great three rows of seats and very easy to drive for a SUV. Gas mileage is typical of a SUV of its size.

    We just got a 2004 last month and it's great. It does cost a lot to fill up the tank, but other than that, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it.
