I have had my Acura for about 7 years now and I absolutely love it. I bought it with 70,000 miles on it and I currently have 209,000 miles. I have never had any major problems with it. I actually drove about 2000 miles from Chicago to California and it drove great. I hope to have it for another 200,000 miles.
I got CPO MDX after lot of research and consumerReports guide which rated MDX as the BEST suv.
I did drive for 5 years and was very happy with my car.
I never had major issues and never paid any money from my pocket as it was all under warranty. They did find problem with engine mounts, battery and some tubes that needed cleaning which was all taken care by Acura warranty. I did regular maintenance. Dealer did charge me 600 or so for 60k mile service. Last year I did find that car was not going smooth. It was driving rough sometimes and smooth other times. I also read about transmission issues when it hits 100k. Since mine hit 92k I sold it.
Loved the space, comfort and ride.
It looked stylish and had lot of trunk space!
Third row was OK for kids but I never allowed them to sit there as its in crumple zone and i am not sure if its safe if there is a side swipe.
Acura must fix it's transmission issues and make
Navigation, rear back up camera Standard in all models.
It is strange that when they market their car as premium brand, many mdx's are sold without navigation or rear entertainment systems.
Bought a 1 year old used MDX with 14000k, drove about another 45k over 2.5 years. Roomy, mostly reliable, but NOT sporty. Closest to a minivan in ride and handling. Neither tough enough for offroad nor secure enough for sporty driving. Replaced starter under warranty, but scheduled dealer service pricey with frequent transfer case oil changes. Did I mention my dealer maintained creampuff did not hold value for a trade at an Acura dealer? Don't let Acura tell you this a a luxury car, just because it has leather seats. Mediocre stereo.
Super comfy for 4 adults and golf clubs. Other seating positions for short trips and small kids only. Plenty of get up and go. Just don't follow closely.
Better brakes! Quick stops in traffic can be scary! You will never get the posted highway mileage unless you drive under 60 downhill with a tailwind. Standard Goodyear tires squeal in mild corners. Seat heaters anemic, with passenger seat only heated at the bottom! Roofrack need special adapters.
Purchased the Last remaining 2003 model
left on the lot for about $700 less
than TMV. Car has been wonderful,
great in the snow, great ride,
wonderful interior quality, engine
smooth, transmission pretty good,
suspension excellent for an SUV.
interior room great, rear seats ok,
last row good for kids. mileage
typical for an suv (poor). Accidentally
closed the garage door on the roof.
Acura service was top notch. Very
honest professional and courteous.
This car is A STEAL for the $$$. And
you don't have to deal with the
pretensiousness from the german dealers.
Fully Loaded, Base price.
fold flat seats. looks great in black
