2002 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought the vehicle brand new off the lot and from day 01 the vehicle had issues, i.e. bubbles in the paint, EGR valve recalls (numerous), etc. The latest is the transmission. This is the second one in 160K miles. The first one was under warranty & the second was while still under warranty as well, however the Sunnyvale Acura dealership did not identify it and has now changed ownership & they're not taking responsibility. The repair will be between $5K~$7K. This is the 1st and last Acura which I will ever buy. They use the term "Luxury Vehicle" - don't be fooled. My prior Lexus was a true Luxury Vehicle, over 250K miles on the trannie w/ no issues.

Favorite Features

(1) Good turning radius. (2) Decent gas mileage (3) Good engine (when no recalls) (4) Decent seating / leg room

Suggested Improvements

(1) Sound System (2) Sound deadening for road noise. Very tinny car - nothing has changed from the original Luxury Acuras, i.e. the Legends from the 80's.
