I think the voice commands suck. It takes too many commands to do anything. Especially after my bmw. Drive one a try out the voice commands. That’s the only way to know.thank you for your post. I'm still looking for a 2017 or 2016 MDX I have not changed my mind on that despite all the critics I've read about the transmission. I guess I need to make sure that all the updates were done properly and that the model I will buy won't have any issue. I have looked at all the review videos of the MDX 2016 on the internet and what comes back a lot is the fact that the two screen display is hard to manipulate and is not very intuitive. although all these reviews are talking about the suv's drivability, it's fuel consumption and all the rest, nobody is mentioning anything about speech command. On my current MDX 2005 I use it a lot to control the climate the temperature the radio and I find it to be very practical I can only imagine how better it must be on the 2016model. does anybody any experience or criticism they would like to share on that?
