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


Review

We're very pleased with the MDX, it it spacious, well designed and extremely comfortable to drive. The 240 hp engine provides excellent fuel economy and enough power to handle any driving conditions. Can't wait to try it in the mountains this coming winter.


Best Features

The trip computer/control center screen is well placed and provides great information. Front seats are very comfortable, adjust easily and are heated.


Worst Features

The vehicle will roll back on a hill when releasing the brake pedal, this can be alarming the first few times. Would suggest "hill hold" feature as offered by Subaru.

Review

I have used this vehicle to haul large items long distances on the roof; to carry home improvement items and landscaping materials; and to carry the family 5000 miles on vacation. There isn't a better, more reliable vehicle on the market.

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


Review

The MDX was not without inital minor problems (the thud, the weeping mirrors) but both problems were resolved by Acura and the dealership. Hubby was recently in a 50mph freeway crash in our MDX, and while our vehicle is pronbably totalled, he wasn't. This vehicle has earned it's admirably high safety rating - it did what it was designed to do and I'm grateful. Those foks at Acura build an awewsome egg crate. We're not looking elsewhere - we're just planning on replacing our damaged MDX with a newer model. Thanks Acura!


Best Features

The gas mileage feature really helped to improve our energy conservation. I also loved the flexibility of the seating options and the color we ahd (granite green.)


Worst Features

The paint is a little soft and even rough hands seem to scratch it a bit. I also wish that there were some side protection to avoid door dings.

Review

The MDX is a capable blend of SUV, and family car, with a dash of sports car thrown in. The exterior styling is distinctive and elegant. It looks sporty and clean. The touring package adds nice wheels and a roof rack which compliments the overall styling theme. The interior design is on par with most cars in this class. It hosts a bevy of standard features such as leather trimmed seats, 8-way power driver's seat, and heated front seats. The engine is refined and strong.


Best Features

The second and third row folding seats are easy to use. The Touring package adds the convenience of a remote linked driver's seat with two memory settings. The Bose audio system is also an added bonus with its clear and powerful sound and six-disk in-dash cd changer.


Worst Features

Fully automatic headlights would be nice instead of merely "automatic off". The faux wood trim is nicely done but it still looks fake. Otherwise, this is a wonderful SUV which rewards with a well balanced mix of luxury and functionality.
