Vance recently took the ZDX on a road trip to Reno, Nevada, and came back with a list of pros and cons. "Pros: More nimble and lighter on its feet than an X6, feels like the most premium vehicle Acura has ever made, nice to finally see a six-speed automatic in an Acura product, Bluetooth pairing for iPhone was really easy and is done in one process for both phone and audio, beautiful and tasteful leather-wrapped dash and center console, high-quality carpet on cargo floor, useful in-floor storage area in cargo hold that prevents grocery bags from slip-sliding away, big, meaty steering wheel feels great in the hands. Cons: Shifter tends to slide naturally into N rather than D, in IDS comfort mode, traction/stability control is way overzealous -- just breathing on the throttle in a tight-radius turn unnecessarily triggers the brake of the inside front wheel."
