The MDX has been one of our higher-rated models. We like its strong, refined powertrain and pleasant ride. The comfortable interior offers good visibility, seating for seven passengers and a very decent amount of cargo room. The MDX also feels agile in routine driving, but does not inspire confidence in emergency handling, even with its stability-control system.

What Owners Say

Air or water leaks

"The roof rusted through in one little spot under the trim strip just near the front windshield. Rain leaked in and dripped on the driver's seat and floor and stained the pillar lining beside the windshield. We eventually fixed it by finding the leak and covering with a sealer. However I've been concerned in the wake of the Takata airbag stories of corrosion leading to the ejection of schrapnel on airbag deployment that something like that might happened with the airbag in that pillar, since it got wet so many times before we found and fixed the leak."

An electrical capacitor may have been damaged during the manufacturing of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) control module causing intermittent, automatic, minor brake application. However, if the driver applies the brakes while the VSA is malfunctioning, the vehicle may come to an abrupt stop. Additionally, due to a loose ground connection, certain model year 2005 Pilots have a VSA system that may apply partial brake force, without the illumination of the brake lights, whether or not the driver is using the brakes.
What should you do:
