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


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.

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


Review

Did not like the look of Pilot. Needed 7seats. Don't want truck based SUV's because don't really need off road capability(just rough road cap. is fine). Fullsize is too bulky and cumbersome. Volvo is expensive and has questionable reliability. ===========> Acura MDX was my choice.


Best Features

3rd row seat, memory seats, powerful engine, quiet ride, standard 17inch wheels.


Worst Features

better interior material, Three memory settings for seats instead of two, cut cost further by eliminating rear locking diff, sunroof switch location is bad, Make all windows one touch operatable both up and downward with pinch protection. In other words, learn from BMW's.

Review

I have had an extrordinary experience with my MDX. The ride is excellent and the most features are convenient. I have not been able to get the home link to work with my garage door opener, but otherwise it has been great. The only bad thing to say is the Acura dealiships know they have a good car and are sometimes a little arrogant.


Best Features

Navagation system has come in real handy and easy to use in comparison to some of the others I have seen.


Worst Features

In addition to direct and easy as options, the navagation system should have an option for shortest distance. Often the direct route turns out to be the furthest.

Review

I love this car...er,truck...er,SUV. I've owned it 2 yrs & have found nothing that I seriously dislike & a whole bunch that's great. I live in the So.Cal. mountains & spend a lot of driving time on curvy, up & down roads. The MDX handles super. It is fun & stable to drive. On ice & snow the AWD really comes through. It has an amazing amount of interior space considering the outside appearance. The biggest negative with the vehicle is the dealer network. Having owned two MB's and two Lexi, I've become spoiled by excellent service. Acura dealerships(I've been to three)are about on a par with Ford. Not what you expect of a supposed luxury nameplate.


Best Features

Comfortable seating. Excellent handing. Third row seating (for kids and grandkids). Navigation system.


Worst Features

The navigation system, although very good, needs a better database and method of finding businesses (I dare you to find a local Home Depot)
