That MDX isn't even broken in yet.

Do you need a 3rd row?

The X5 will end up going for substantially more than the MDX, which makes the choice obvious in my mind (though I'm biased )

MDX: Cheaper, 3rd row, Nav, will run forever, easy on maintenance
X5: More fun to drive, but seriously, we're talking about SUVs...higher maintenance costs, higher price to begin with, LEATHERETTE (yuck).

Just my $0.02

Driven both for a long period of time, prefer and have the MDX, extra seats, more comfortable, handles better. Cheaper to maintain. When things break on the X5, it's pretty expensive.

Too bad the MDX are gone and the X5 had history of repairs, but thanks for the comments..

X5 - zero feel in the MDX.
