2001 Acura MDX Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I've had this MDX for almost nine years (brand new with 14 miles on the engine) and have thoroughly enjoyed owning and driving this SUV. Dealer replaced the transmission about 75K miles ago. Love the strong, stable feel when driving in snow & rain. So roomy and comfortable for trips. Even though I no longer need such a large vehicle (the kids are grown & gone now) I most likely will get another MDX only I will buy used this time. I have over 175K miles and am seeing just how long/far this car will go. Have had most of the preventive maintenance performed which can be pricey but still haven't found another SUV I like better.
Excellent viewing range. Stable (tank like) feel. Interior conveniences. Decent gas mileage. Large storage capacity. Handles like a car.
Transmission. Rear window capable of opening & rear intermittent wipers.
