2002 Acura MDX SUV 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We currently have 133,000 miles. We have replaced far too many things to say this is a used car best buy. The tranny went at 99k, motor mounts at 110k, wheel bearings at 99k, shocks and struts at 115k, rear heater stopped working at 80k, it's starting to rust in the wheel wells and the list goes on. The motor mounts and tranny are a known issue on these cars. RECALL IT! Dealer said to me "Hey, you got your use out of them". I didn't realize parts expired..


Best Features

Ride (once everything is fixed) and interior comfort.


Worst Features

Tranny and motor mount recall.

Review

I just bought an MDX. The transmission died within 30 days! 4500.00 to fix! NO MORE ACURAS for me. And, it is the SECOND time! First replacement was in 2004


Worst Features

Fix the transmission issues. A so called "luxury" car with tranny issues like this one is absolutely without excuse.

Review

I love my MDX and would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone. The styling, features, performance capabilities on this vehicle was everything I could have hoped for. Driving the MDX you feel like your in control of the road. It hugs the turns like a race car. The MDX is sporty, safe, and very roomy inside. I love my MDX!!


Best Features

Everything about this SUV is my favorite.


Worst Features

There is really nothing I could suggest on improving the MDX, it's really that good of a vehicle.

Review

After five years we still love this car. It has been totally reliable, handles well, has sufficient power for freeway driving and has a surprisingly tight turning radius for its size. Last, but not least, this MDX has extremely comfortable seating in the front and second row (we have never used the 3rd row). We would recommend it highly. We expect ours to be carrying us around for many years to come.


Best Features

Tight turning radius. Very comfortable front and second row seating. Smooth, level and safe cargo area for our large dogs.

Review

This car is a good car short term. After my second year owning this car a bunch of lights came up on the dashboard. After getting it checked, weeks later the transmission starting to fail. acura has honda products including the transmission, and honda is known for the worst transmission. The car starting bucking and did not get into gear, and would have trouble reversing. Very comfy, nice options, but just bad transmission, and sunroof.


Best Features

6 disk Cd changer, heated seats


Worst Features

Transmission, Fuel economy
