Hopefully, you can find a good deal on your new-to-you ride! When it comes to the best model year for a used Acura MDX, you actually have more than just one to choose from. According to car experts, some of the best years for the MDX include:
  • 2014
  • 2016
  • 2017
  • 2018
As you continue your hunt, there are some models of the Acura MDX that you should avoid. Models built between 2010 and 2013 are notorious for guzzling oil. In fact, the issues were so severe, they resulted in a class-action lawsuit against Acura’s parent company, Honda.
Remember that buying a used car is about more than just finding a reliable model year. Some other things you should look for when buying a used car include a vehicle history and maintenance records to ensure the previous owner(s) followed a basic car maintenance schedule.
