2001 Acura MDX Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned this vehicle for 3 years;
never had a problem even once. It has
always been a reliable trusty vehicle.
The interior is very comfortable, and
the third row seats are pretty roomy
(for third-row seats). Cargo carrying
capacity is amazing with both the
second and third row seats folded
flush into the floor.


Best Features

Outstanding navigation system; 10 cup holders. Lots and lots of storage areas. Two power outlets near driver seat plus a rear power outlet for your cooler box.


Worst Features

Imrprove fuel efficiency

2001 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have enjoyed my MDX but I have had a
transmission failure at 36,000 miles. Acura
did not cover the failure because they stated
that I had a third party transmission cooler
placed that voided their wonderful warranty.
The AAMCO dealer that replace the
transmission for $6000 told me that the
cooler was not the problem. I have also had
a friend that had a transmission failure at
$40,000 miles. The local Acura dealer was
not only unhelpful but downright indignant.


Best Features

Fuel Economy


Worst Features

Front seat comfort. Transmission redesign.

Review

There are three small details I've had
with my MDX.
1.- Wind whistles into the cabin at
high speeds
2.- Driver's seat is not very good for
long roadtrips.
3.- A/C fan switch is not easy to use.
The only other comment is about its
towing capacity. I purchased the towing
package (which by the way, all accs.
are very expensive) and can only tow
about 3,000#. If you plan to tow a
small boat, or anything else, look for
something else.
Off-road is so-so. It VTM-Lock allows
for front wheel slip while not really
locking the back tires.
If you dont toe and dont off-road, this
is the best SUV you can buy


Worst Features

-Toeing capacity -Upgraded seats -Improve the 4WD system

Review

Vehicle was good until the tranny began
failing at 63,000 mi. Acura offered to
pay half of the $5,510.00 to replace
tranny. I paid $2,755.00. Appealed to
Acura and dealer for something more,
since I am a 15-year customer of this
dealer. They said, "No thanks."

I questioned trying a first year model,
in 2001.

Know that replacement tranny was not
immeidiately available when my
repair was done Dec.'02. Seems that
Acura is having more wide spread
trouble with the MDX than they will
admit.

Acura extended warrany from 50,000 mi.
to 100,000 mi. on the tranny of another
model. Not for '01 MDX. Buyer be ware.

Review

I purchased this vehicle from Carmax
and it has been a workhorse. I also
purchased the extended warranty and
have had to use it once (engine mount &
AC system). I may never purchase
another brand again!


Best Features

Seating position, build quality & exterior styling


Worst Features

New features that are already in the '04 MDX!
