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

Review

ownership, I can honestly say I'd buy the car all over again, in a heartbeat. Pluses are comfort, still class-leading navigation system, interior room, and build quality. Mine has always been dealer-serviced, which hasn't been particularly cheap. Transmission went kaput at 90,000 miles, and I neither tow, carry loads nor abuse the transmission in any way. Would have been more disappointing, but Honda Motors - which apparently knows they have problems with this transmission, paid for half the cost of replacement. Abundant wind and road noise and unimpressive gas mileage (about 18 mpg combined)are about the only drawbacks. And you'd better have a wide garage door to fit it in.

Favorite Features

User-friendly navigation system, Bose stereo, all wheel drive, drives smaller than its size, good build quality, Acura dealer network.

Suggested Improvements

Lots of wind and road noise, expensive to service properly, watch out for cars with high mileage unless transmission has already been replaced, marginal gas mileage, premium fuel required. Essentially unusable 3rd row seats.
