2005 Acura MDX SUV Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Good car overall, the biggest SUV size for the smallest SUV type.


Best Features

I love the subwoofer when I blast my tunes it sounds perfect!


Worst Features

I just wish that they would put the time and money into making the interior more sufficient.

2005 Acura MDX SUV Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great little SUV. It has several nice features however it is missing a few basic features. Only the drivers window is auto up/down and the sunroof is NOT auto either. Gas mileage is not as good as I would have expected. Overall I am extremely happy with this SUV. Acura offers the best SUV with the most options in it's class. Much better than the X5 and not as regular as the Lexus. A great buy if you are in the market!


Best Features

Bluetooth, hands free phone. Voice Activated Navi system.


Worst Features

Auto up/down windows should be on ALL windows and sunroof. Gas mileage could be better.

Review

"Clunking" noises that "can't be fixed". Said MDX just makes these noises w/ no remedy <-NOT an acceptable answer!!! Poor design features: no continuous visible outside temperature readout; recirculating air setting does not stay on-must be constantly re-set; Navigation system NOT user friendly. Also, static in AM radio. Over-designed in some areas; under-designed in others. Manufacturer not willing to remedy problems. Spent over $40,000 for a car that does not meet expectations.


Best Features

XM radio; On-Star; Memory Seats;


Worst Features

Full-time visible outside temperature read-out w/out having to push a button to get to a screen showing temp; Full- time recirculating air setting; more straight-forward A/C operation-too many steps involved to get settings. Tip- Tronic transmission; navi-system jumps to wrong headings<-needs refining

Review

I owned an '02 MDX and thoroughly enjoyed it. I moved up the the '05 and it is more advanced thatn the '02 with the talk to it feature.


Best Features

The ability to talk to it for basics, radio, nav, and phone. The 3rd seat though uncomfortable for some has been very useful. To steering wheel should raise higher for easier exit. Should be able to lenghten the steering column.


Worst Features

I'd like the nav display to be higher, the system to better understand the voice,should come with dayling running lights (I had the fog lights fixed so they come on as I turn on the engine).
