especially with crazy amount of recalls that has been happening around all these brands recently!!!

Pretty ridiculous to not think Lexus as a luxury car just because they fall under a parent company that's not so "prestigious." I've sat in enough Lexus's to know they very much are helping set the bar of luxury from their service to the quality of the materials they use inside the vehicles. Acura I agree leaves a little bit to be desired but they are still nice as well.

The Acura MDX is probably the best all around SUV available in the US and if you don't think so then I'm guessing you haven't owned or driven one. They're comfortable, quiet, ultra reliable and are extremely safe (07+). I have an 07 w/ Sport/Entertainment and it handles well for what it is and the motor has plenty of grunt...only complaint is the poor mpg. Mine has 120K miles and has never been in for anything but regular services and my 01 MDX has over 300K but it required a tranny rebuild around 220K. I'm not a fan of the headlights on the new ones but they're very nice.

I always liked the MDX as well. I had an 02 and drove it till 09. Solid car, nice features, I did a few small mods to it like all of the cars I've had over the years so mine kinda had an individual look to it inside and out.

Very reliable and easy to maintain. Comfortable and welcoming cabin and she handled the corners surprisingly well with the wide tires and stance I hooked her up with. If I can dig ip some old pics, I will put some up later. Ah, memory lane...lol

I only gave her up because when I found out about the X6... well love at first sight kicked in so marched into BMW dealership, built an 09 X6, and I started saving my pennies in 08 and then sold the MDX to a good friend in order to pick up my new toy after about a three month wait.
