  • "Alongside other premium SUVs, the Acura MDX can come off as lacking a bit in terms of prestige and flair. But it counters with a lower price and Acura's reputation for durability and reliability." -- Edmunds
  • "The MDX is well built and comes with the promise of outstanding dealer care, long life, and good resale." -- MarketWatch
  • "The MDX is still a bargain after all, and it's still the only other entry besides the Lexus and Infiniti that's proven to hold up reliably over time." -- Automotive.com
  • "Any new model carries a degree of risk until it establishes a reputation for reliability, but Acuras have tended to be top-drawer vehicles right out of the box." -- Newsday
