My wife wanted a vehicle that is easy
to manuever (not a tank!), nice
looking, has a well appointed interior,
will haul around our 3 kids plus junk
and friends, and above all - is safe.
And, she refuses to drive a van. Well,
the MDX is the only vehicle that meets
all the above criteria. And is does so
with great style, and attention to
Heated seats, multiple cup holders,
great handling for a vehicle this size.
Gets much better gas mileage than
others in its class. It is one of the
safest SUVs, and has low emmissions -

We have had our MDX for almost a year.
We have had no problems with our
vehicle, and have really found it to be
better than we anticipated. We have
made numerous long trips and it has
surpassed all expectations.
Just had our 7,500 mile service, and I
can't praise this vehicle enough. Great
power, looks, comfort, reliability.
Having driven 330 miles through a
serious snow storm on Christmas Eve, I
feel qualified to say that the 4WD
works extremely well. You can buy an X5
with options to match the MDX for
thousands more, and you still won't be
able to do anything about the space
deficit. The extra seats and cargo
space are VERY nice to have. If you
want to be able to say "I drive a BMW",
that's understandable - my wife and I
just bought a 530i. But if you want
value, the MDX is the clear choice.
Reliability/quality, 4WD system, navi

Get rid of the fake interior wood
(either use the real thing or replace
it with some other type of trim)and see
if you can fit a full size spare. My
other thoughts are taken care of in the
We purchased this vehicle for the supposed
reliability and extra seating capability. After
approximately 1,000 miles I began to notice
a high pitch ringing noise when going over
30mph. I have taken the MDX back to the
dealer 3 times for repair to no avail. Also,
whenever I change gears (i.e. go into
reverse after being in park) the is a loud
thud when braking. Dealer tells me this a
normal characterisitc of the MDX's brake
callipers (sp?) adjusting. Who knows?
What I do know is that I am unhappy with the
entire Acura experience. I paid close to
$40,000 for a noisy vehicle which I do not
Third seat. Exterior styling.
Engine noises! More durable interior. Make
an engine that will accept regular fuel.
After owning a 99 Ch-eep Grand J-erokee
for 3+ years and spending WAY TOO MUCH
MONEY on minor and MAJOR repairs (after
the warranty expired, of course), I
purchased the 2002 MDX. Although the
price on the MDX is much more than the
Jeep, I'll most likely be saving money
over time. The quality and
craftsmanship of the MDX is by far
superior than the JGC and I believe 90+
percent of all suv's on the market.
This is the best SUV for golfers,
because golf clubs fit like a glove in
this SUV. If you're looking for a
smooth, comfortable, no-rattle, luxury
ride, this is the SUV to buy.
Room, comfort, stereo 6 disc changer,
no rattles, bun warmers, powered memory
seats, the list goes on and on.
When making sharp turns, there's a lull
as if the front wheels were turned 90
