You should PM Bill_de before looking at MDX. Even though he has had a few minor issues he will tell you how much nicer his Jeep is. Especially road noise wise. The MDX is noisy for what you pay.

I do ... Are you in Lincoln too? Did they treat you well? We are considering the gas model too - so tired of the wait and not convinced it will end anytime this year.

The 2014 Acura is a complete redesign with a focus on reducing wind noise. I owned a 2007 MDX and it was sporty and fun to drive. I don't like how Acura forces you to get a DVD to get other tech goodies (lane keep assist, ventilated seats,etc.). A panoramic sunroof isn't even an option in the MDX.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I found today the first Diesels (overland) at our local Dealer -first 2014 vehicles here anyway.
They are labeled CRD not ecodiesel.
..can not or to stupid to post some pics
Applied for a test ride, waiting for callback.

Oh, forgot to mention: local dealer is close to Frankfurt, Germany

Happy Day

Achim

CRAP.... Milous, that is my second June Skim... next one I am in trouble.


Ok so to answer the question... Yes, all Export Diesels are CRD EcoDiesel is a North American Trade Mark.

Thanks Jamesla, I will go get another coffee.

Nope theirs was a 454... if it were a Diesel 5.7 you would have seen the rods flying through the block every 3rd episode. You can't make a gas engine diesel by filling the spark plug holes and putting diesel fuel in the way they did with the 5.7
