Here is a question: How long are you planning to keep your MDX for? Knowing Honda and Acura quality, I am planning to keep mine for at least 6-7 years. How long I WILL actually keep it once there is the next generation of MDX, is a different question! :D

For as long as it will last - not too often i'll spend this kind of money on a vehicle, short of winning the lotto. :2:

Hi All:

___Since I don’t have an X yet, I had to refrain from voting but when I do, 10 years and/or 200,000 miles … whichever comes last. That should just about do it ;)

___Good Luck

48 Months to be exact

I'll keep mine for the 48 months on the lease and then turn around and lease another one. I may have to keep it 50 months or so to wait for the newest model about late September or early October in 2006. (Man, that seems a long way off)

Desant,

I'll go out on a limb and say that I plan on keeping my MDX for 10 years or longer.:5:

I feel the same way. After spending all this money, I feel like keeping it for at least 7-9 years or till it stop working, which probably won't happen if I take care of it well.

HOWEVER, I know what may happen. I will be almost paid off in 3-4 years and then Acura will introduce this new MDX or XDX or ADX ;) that will be the latest concept and will have 360 HP, real-time satellite info NAVI, self-commuting mode for freeways, 4x4 that avoid sliding or rollover for 99.99%, security features that blow an airbag bubble around you...

OK, I will stop letting my imagination run wild, but you get the point! Then I will say :12: - WOW - I gotta have this car!!! And there will go my 7-8 years... Or, maybe not. Maybe there will go my Montero or TL-S! Who knows?

:9:

I don't have my X yet but, if history is an indicator, when I do, I'll be keeping it for a looong time. I just got rid of a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder and will be deciding out what to do with our 1991 Honda Civic when the X arrives. Both ran for 11+ years with minimal problems (both with low mileage for their age). Needless to say, an MDX is quite an upgrade but, a lot has changed in the 11 years since purchasing those two vehicles sooooo many years ago. :)

Wow....wondering why there is MULTI-Choices for this....

Unless I destroy the car, otherwise I will be keeping it for a LONG LONG time. I hope this car could last twice of my Maxima [which is in its 10th year], since it costs twice. :rolleyes:

We typically trade based on mileage/problems ...

... and not on years. However that has translated to about every 4 years most of the time.

Plan on keeping mine......

..............7 to 8 years and will probably have around 200,000 miles by then (drive approximately 25,000+ miles a year) .......Will be really interesting to see how it holds up. I'm counting on it being a TYPICAL HONDA taking me to over 200,000 miles with very few problems, if any!

Till Lease Ends

We're planning on keeping ours till end of the lease then evaluating what's our needs vs suv's on market vs our MDX and make a buy-turn in & lease or change model decision.

After 18 months, it's a no-brainer to buy this or release another MDX. Just wish they'd add some minor lux touches like xenons, auto up/down all around, etc.

I probably will keep the MDX for 7 years/100k miles, if I eventually buy the extended warranty. I'm not sure if I'm comfortable keeping it past that. Plus by then there'll be amazingly better vehicles out, including a new MDX (either released or very close to it).
