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

Review

Bought this car brand new and have always maintained it properly, including the replacement of the timing belt at 105K. Since that time it has been a money guzzling machine. Left rear mirror fell out with motor assembly to the tune of $329. Driver's side seat moulding broken along with loose driver's seat. Now I've been told that the power steering is shot, a motor mount is broke, the seal around the left headlight needs to be replaced, among other things. Total anticipated cost $3-5,000. For all Acura says about quality, I don't know that I will buy another one.

Favorite Features

Comfortable to drive with good handling and plenty of pop to the engine.

Suggested Improvements

Apparently overall quality of the car. Very expensive to fix.

Be glad you "only" spent $3-5,000. We spent over $15K in less than 4 yrs. If we didn't still owe on it we would have walked away from it long ago! What a money pit! Glad you shared your story.
