2003 Acura MDX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

One week out of the dealership, I got
rear-ended in stop-and-go traffic by a
Nissan. Hardly realizing what had
happened, I stepped out of my MDX only
to see a TOTALLED Nissan. I knew the
MDX was well built, but I was still
surprised to see that my MDX had ZERO
damage. I even brought it to 3
mechanics, including the dealer just to
rest my soul, and they found nothing
wrong with my MDX. I must say from
experience that I have never driven an
SUV (luxury or not) with this type of
strength.

This SUV also drives awesome over 80
mph!


Best Features

So much room! Can someone please explain to me why this SUV has very similar dimensions to the Lexus 330, but feels so much BIGGER (My wife has a 330, so I speak from experience).I also love the 7 passenger seating (it is really 8).


Worst Features

None that I can think of!

2003 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav and Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After looking closely at the Volvo
XC90 my wife and I ended up with the
MDX. We now have over 7500 miles on it
and it has been TREMENDOUS vehicle.
Outstanding ride quality, power,
comfort and utility.


Best Features

Where to start? Transmission, engine, nav system, entertainment system, suspension, build quality, looks (pretty subjective), utility.


Worst Features

Side airbags for the 2nd and 3rd rows.

Review

The MDX is excellent and fun to drive --
- very roomy and lots of cargo space.
It is quiet and surely drives like a
car. Has lots of power and real easy
to drive. It is also fuel economy. I
love it's 2003 overall look. I am so
glad that I bought the MDX. It's worth
the money. Thank you.


Best Features

The chrome spokes; chrome stepping, chrome door handles, beautiful exterior redrock lava color and saddle leather interior. Great navigational and DVD entertainment center.

Review

After having owned Explorer Limiteds,
and having driven Lexus, Mercedes, GMC,
Toyota, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, and other
SUV's, this is definitely and clearly
the best luxury SUV for the money.
Extremely low maintenance and excellent
dealer service. Very quiet but
powerful. Comfortable ride, high
visibility, well-built, good tracking,
very versatile, packs a lot of gear.
Have never used the thrid seat, and
luckily, it folds flat so it offers
good storage in back. This is easily
the best SUV on the market. I told
Ford I would never be back.


Best Features

Powerful, quiet, smooth engine.


Worst Features

None. Can't wait to see the next version.
