Still a winner

2002 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Car delivers as promised. There's a reason why it continued to win editors choice awards after 3 years. Interior design is good, could be a bit more luxurious. Gas mileage excellent under 70 MPH (23.5 MPG highway on my last trip - awesome for a mid-sized suv!). Minor build quality issues; back of drivers seat broke off, cup holder latch needed to be replaced. Like that they used to be rare on the road
3 row seating, good acceleration, gas mileage, sporty handling, classy package, residual value, brake life (40K miles an 1/2 brake pads left), all the little features std like heated seats
Make sunroof bigger and moonroof visor less intrusive. Door guard trim needs to be std and made so they don't discolor. Improve interior luxury factor. Transmission reliability rumors? A roof rack that is quiet and actually useful, more leg room in back seat, more storage room behind 3rd row.
