Heard some complains about MDX's road noise, I am wondering how noisy it is while driving above 70mph. I have a 99 toyota camry, I think it is very quiet while driving at any speeds. anybody knows the comparison of noise level between the X and camry?

Any large SUV will be louder than a sedan

The noise levels of the MDX is a much debated topic, try Search.

I strongly suspect it will be louder than a midsize sedan. Noise is not the MDX's strongest feature. I find it more than tolerable, but it is a large/wide SUV.

I read that some noise improvements occurred on the 2002 model although I imagine they will be minimal. I think the touring tires are also a tad quieter than the base model tires. MDX Factory hood deflectors have a reputation for being noisy, Formfit deflectors are quiet.

I agree that with the size and height of the MDX it will naturally be noisier than a sedan. The real question should be is it as quiet as other SUV's in it's class?

the noise level is very acceptable.

if I hear a rattle, I blame the bumpy road, or turn up the volume on the above average sound system.

Just personal opinion.....

The noise on MDX is louder than my cousin's highlander while driving in HIGH speed. But it is a lot quiet than my OLD 93 maxima. :2:

In fact, my brother said this car is VERY quiet on the road. Overall, I am very satisfy with this car. :D

I have a '95 Camry XLE. It is much noisier than my 2002 MDX.
