Thumbs up my new 2010 mdx advance!

Hi All, new to the forum. Attached a picture of my new (to me) MDX Advance. Just ordered some of the sport running boards to complete the look, hopefully will have some time to install them this weekend. Otherwise jumping into a fresh set of fluids and filters to start my maintenance/service schedule. Looking forward to contributing to the community!

Nice!! I have the same one. Love it. By far, favorite vehicle I have ever owned or driven. Going to buy it off lease in September. One thing I would suggest is to add the body side molding. It really looks nice but also functional. I had someone swing their door open into my door. Luckily it hit the molding, which is a cheap $100 piece. If it were to hit the door itself, I would have been looking at a whole lot more to repair it.

I am also considering running boards, as well as a roof rack. I am still researching to see what people think who have added either of them. I am a little worried about wind noise from the roof rack.

Also, you say that you ordered the sport running boards. I am debating on the sport or the advance. Was there a reason that you went with the sport ones? Personal preference, looks? I am just wondering because I have read some people complaining about the advance ones, and some sort of buckling of the plastic.

Thanks, I love it as well, so much technology, comfortable, and love the suspension adjustability. I don't have much need for a roof rack and they chrome one gets pretty pricey once you add the cross bars, I do carry bikes but they usually go in the back covered or I use a Thule hitch mounted platform rack (if you carry bikes this is by far the best rack I've ever owned). On the running boards I simply like the look of the Sport better than the other options, plus if you have ever actually used running boards before you need to take into account the "un-usable" ones like the Sport (they're for looks) because if you get ones that stick out too far you end up scraping your jeans/dress, etc. on them and they get dirty. The MDX really isn't tall enough to warrant the true use of running boards.

50k miles, Advance package, towing packing, navigation, polish metallic on ebony leather. Pretty much every option they had on the 2010 model except the entertainment package. You can get Tech packages for a bit less, but I really wanted the 19" wheels, and I liked the interior design changes on the Advance (the blind spot detection, suspension, and A/C seats are also a nice touch).

Paid 31k even for it. Everyone can opine if that was a good deal or not.

Good point on the running boards. I never thought of that, but I totally see it happening with me especially since I do wear a suit half of the week.

As for the bikes, that is good to know. My wife and I were recently discussing a roof rack for things like that (kayak, bikes, etc.). But I would much prefer the hitch mounted one instead. I am planning to have a towing kit installed sometime this spring so I may pick up a Thule at that time. Thanks for the info.

my new 2010 mdx advance!

Without reading the previous comments, I have black roof rack and bar in mine, I like that better than the super ones, not only are they adjustable front to back, which the silver are not, they also look better IMO. I got a hitch rack for the bikes, I didn't feel like trying to put a bike on the roof and not scratching the car. I also have a roof box for crap overflow on long trips.

Oh, and on the running board subject, I have the advance, they are wide, and lower than the sport, they are not as good looking, but I believe more functional. You have to step on them every single time you get in and out of the car or your pants will get dirty.
