I bought my '02 MDX in '06 with 64,000 miles on it. I have not had any problems with it in the last 3 years. I keep up with regular maintenance - that's it. I can regularly get 20-22mpg around town, and up to 26 highway. Pretty good for an SUV. I'm up to 120,000 miles and it still drives and looks great. There's a weird 'pop' noise when going back into drive after being in reverse, but it's been there since I bought it and has never caused any problems. To my understanding, it is common to most '02 MDXs.
Front seat comfort, 6-disc sound system (sounds great, and I'm a musician), reliability, hwy passing power, gas mileage.
My windows go down pretty slowly - wish they were a little faster. It'd be nice if the 2nd row seats folded all the way to flat. An aux input for an ipod (but it is an '02...). Road noise could be less, but the stereo on at a low volume masks it.
