    Just bought this 2022 Aspec model. Traded in my X5 and couldn’t be happier. Acura quality,4 year warranty, great resale and plenty of tech ( really like the interchangeable digital dash). Drives like it weighs much less 👍🏼, make your own drive mode is nice and great looks! The nav pad does take some getting use to but in time will be fine. Would recommend but if you see one don’t wait ! In 2021 the vehicle shortage is real!

    Joe, thank you for your information and humor. My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed using your videos over the past two weeks as we decided which 3rd row SUV to purchase. After about 10 failed attempts to track down and to buy a Telluride or Palisade, we ultimately chose the Acura MDX. We will miss doing research, but will continue to watch you just for entertainment. As my wife said, “I can’t imagine going with hearing ‘On Throttle! Here we go!’. Thanks for your professionalism. Jim and Denise.

    😍was just about to seal the deal on the Lexus GX460, that was until I came across this. Now I’m torn…GX has awesome resale value and will last an eternity but is so antiquated inside. MDX has all the bells and whistles and larger interior, but how is longevity and resale value. I’ve never owned an Acura or Honda for that matter. Give me some feedback please if you’ve ever owned either!

    Joe, this review is why I convinced my wife to get this car so I appreciate you. We ended up with this exact 2022 white A-Spec SH-AWD with the red interior. I probably would have gotten a different color if inventory wasn't low but the black accents do look incredible on the white car. Now my wife only trusts your car reviews. 😂
