Good vehicle but not a great vehicle.
By Outlaw 06 on
2002 Acura MDX Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
My wife drives the MDX primarily for
shopping and shuttling around our 3
children. I drive it primarily on
weekends. Like all Hondas, the MDX
offers good reliability and value
(dealer price gouging
notwithstanding). The MDX is built
well and has a very good engine and
drivetrain. The MDX's interior quality
and ergonomics are also very good.
However, performance is average,
handling is unimpressive and the
vehicle is noisy at highway speeds.
Braking is HORRIBLE, the MDX takes
forever to stop! Additionally, the MDX
is not very stylish when compared to
other "luxury" SUVs such as the BMW X5
or Mercedes-Benz M-Class (regardless of
the price difference).
Reliability, Interior Comfort,
This vehicle rates a respectable 7 or 8
(5 being average). For the MDX to rate
a 8+, performance, handling and braking
would all have to dramatically improve
and road noise would have to
