Hello from warm Canada,
My MDX is now at 10,000 km and its 2023 WP Platinum Elite in Canada.
For issues ...
well nothing other then fuel economy, I keep riding in sport mode just love the feeling.
Came from 3 pilots and this thing is very impressive most definitely worth every dollar.
Additions just trims and smoked logos on the back plus Trailer Hitch, no noise issues, Tint and ceramic coating so far no quality issues as of today.
MDX is very responsive SHAWD is amazing, love it being lower to the ground.
plenty of room for me and a better half, just love driving it and I guess washing a bit too much, but that's what what need to do with white car I guess :)

are those stock rims? look pretty dope man. and agree 100% acura/honda missed the mark by not offering a more efficient option. would've gladly paid more for a Type S of some short with a hybrid engine. here in the US, mileage drops to **** if driving a lot locally, averaging 15mpg. the only way i can get close to the rated EPA 25mpg is a lot of flat highways without traffic. just returned from a 300 mile road trip and managed to average 23.5mpg, which is prob the best i'll see with this car. everything else is great tho.
I so agree, would love to have an air suspension and if would not be for turbo engine I would be in a higher model HUD is amazing yes it is off if you bring it too high or too low, Camera wash is also amazing use it so much backing up its dirty squirt of windshield washer and its clean little things like that make me love this car. Seats are amazing, those seats just fit perfect, adjustments for driver and passenger are just so nice they are huge but keep you centre in it when turning almost no body roll comparing to pilot and 3.5 is super dependable engine would not change it for anything , but would be nice to see hybrid option with RDX engine and battery power hybrid, but turbo is the future I guess.
Those rims are winter package from the dealer 20x8.5 it cost me $2,000 CDN plus TAX, got last set from them. I will use them for summer as I kept Pilot winter tires and rims so im good to change to steel rims for winter :) here is the link what dealer got me 20'' Alloy Wheels for 2023 ACURA MDX (Incl A-SPEC / Platinum Elite) | RWC Wheels
Would love to get my hands on Type S rims but do not want to spend $5000.00 on set of rims and and additional 3000 on tires but those 20 look good , they are even quite then stock tires LOL
Love IDM use it allot, hated auto stop so those 2 modes are perfect. Miss the touch screen from pilot but don't miss the finger prints, this touch pad is perfect but hard to use for passenger lol, they most definitely should not have control of radio so good thinking Acura lol
MDX has les vents then pilot so when is -25 outside it takes forever to warm this car up, pilot had much better heating then Acura so I guess that's the only think I do not like about it and after washing car there is a bit of fog on the inside of windows till the heater kicks in and then no sign of it after
Love the white pearl it looks amazing

I don't know why people complain about steering or brakes, they are both b perfectly OK, I keep my on individual mode is a bit more tighter brakes are soft at start but they respond perfectly normal from 20% to 100% pressure , they are not on tight side but respond perfect to heavier vehicle , my individual mode is set to
Engine set to normal and everything else in sport
