      Nice video. I love the exterior design, but as you said, it is behind the competition in the electric/tech department.

      VCM is stupid, and something as simple as changing the fan speed still requires a two step process.

      The MDX has always been better than the X5. We still have our 2005 MDX, and its still running like new! My familly has owned a 2003 X5, and it was not nearly as great.

      Michael Canty depends on where you are, q7 is easily 20-30k more with similar build

      I see all these reviews on this car yet NO ONE points out the obvious - IT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE 2ND GENERATION MDX'S! I have a 2011 and love it. The 3rd gen MDX's ALL looked like shit. They lost that wide aggressive look and now they're FINALLY bring that look back. Just update the interior and cluster (like the RDX) and this thing will be perfect- again.

      Love the video I was looking around and Finally test Drove one I recently had a 2015 Acura RDX AWD but wanted to see what SH-AWD is about and my god it’s amazing in snow I would have to say it’s better then some German cars in the Performance aspect and the reliability is just a added bonus. Can’t wait for the next video. Also can’t wait to see the 2020 version with the new interior and navigation similar to the RDX.

      Great review! The only piece of constructive criticism I have is that at some point in each review you should mention the vehicle weight of the example you are driving/testing.

      mdx looks good with the A-spec package. all they have to do is update the interior like the rdx and put that 10 speed Honda design (not that buggy ZF 9 speed) and this wil sell like pancakes

      I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the vast majority of people who 'think' they need an SUV could, in reality, get by with a sedan.
      The TLX or RLX Hybrid would probably be perfect for them. Those cars should be pushed on people first before people even think about buying more of these fucking SUV's.

      The Buick Enclave has sold more in some years. The new redesigned Enclave for 2018 just missed the MDX for best in segment.

      Great review! I still remember you did an awesome review way back on the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD. The Adv. trim also has a heated steering wheel which is a must on a luxury SUV these days.

      I really like this engine and awd system in my Ridgeline but I am not happy with Honda cylinder deactivation. It works fine when the vehicle is new but eventually it starts having its issues. I now have a vcmtuner to eliminate cylinder deactivation and now I have no issue just less hwy mpg at 22-23 hwy. Other than that I highly recommended the straight 6 engine.

      @Adeeb Shums i am in a Honda Ridgeline forum on facebook and some people have had them in for years with no issue. I did just take my tuner out though because I'm towing and when the vehicle census a load cylinder deactivation does not engage. But I also was not liking the fact that I was getting 20 MPG Highway and 17 City other than that the performance was very smooth shifting and accelerating was awesome

      Just wondering, if that tuner is reliable to use for the long term in the car? Thank you
