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

Review

Went from a Toyota Camry XLS to the MDX since we have a toddler and another on the way. Drives like a car, very smooth. Comes standard with sunroof, heated seats, third row. Has alot to offer.

Review

I enjoy the smooth ride and the technology advanced features. I got all Navi and RES on my MDX because I didn't want buyers remorse. And, I must say it's worth it. I've had mine since Aug 05 and love it. Navi has been reliable when I input addresses, but not as reliable with directory assistance.

Review

I decided go for this MDX because it has 7 seats, better values and excellent ride quality. It is wider than RX330 and comes with all the standrad features. However, I got around 15-19 mile per gallon with premium gas, it is not cheap!!!

Review

We have owned this truck for about 6 months and have been about 95% happy with our purchase. Owned several S U vehicles and this one outdrives them all by a long shot. Often have 5 people in the vehicle and it's very comfortable.

Expected a great car, but....

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

Review

I purchased this vehicle one year ago and have had some problems with the exhaust system and acceleration. My MDX makes an annoying noise at the 2 rpm mark, and does not have very good acceleration at times; I have had it checked (with little success) at my Acura dealer. There are also some interior noises in the back doors, which is bothersome to listen to at times. I really expected a lot more from this vehicle, especially for the price that I paid. The gas mileage is not that great as well....getting around 14-15 mpg in the city and 17-18 mpg on the highway, and I drive fairly conservative.

Downsized for mileage but not so good...

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

Review

Maybe I am not a mid-size SUV kind of person, having driven something much bigger for years. To save on guess I talked myself into this car, liking it better than the competition. After 4 months I continue to be underwhelmed and am thinking of trading for a Seqioa. I don't recommend this to anyone used to a bigger SUV who is just downsizing for the better mileage. I'm getting about 17-19 mpg(70/30 hwy/city). Pluses: Good navigation system. Cons: Where to begin? Clunky and noisy over little bumps; lackluster hwy acceleration; inside windshield steams up ALL the time (never had this problem before; and I live in San Diego!); Sun seems to shine in too much; stiff to shift.. tra

Not your typical Honda product at all

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

Review

Exterior is much sportier than the older body style with the new head/tail lights and dual outlet exhaust but still looks somewhat minivan-ish. Interior build quality is outstanding, not extravagant and everything is logically placed. Very minimal body roll and understeer for what it is. Stereo sounds great especially for a base model. Sound deadening is better than any Honda/Acura I've ever owned. Seats are comfortable--I had to drive 12 hours stopping only for gas and felt fine. Motor is exceptionally torquey for a Honda, but you pay for it at the pump. Acts like an Audi sometimes though--pulsing from rear when turning from a stop, and transmission shifting is somewhat sluggish.

I Love My MDX

Review

I have driven a minivan for years and this is my first SUV. We went with the MDX after test driving BMW,Lexus,Volvo. I was not impressed until I drove my Acura! Main reason I chose it..Cargo room, and 3rd row seat is big enough for me or my 17 y/o son! Best of all were the safety rateings. My MDX gets alomost 19mi/per gallon! Don't think that's bad for a 6cyl. Heck I only got 14-16 with my minivan! Wonderful ride in town or longer trips. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for room, safety and looks!

Best SUV I've owned

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

Review

The MDX is superior in all respects for an SUV. Although the total weight didn't push the specs, I towed a 1100 lb boat and 400 lb trailer 1800 miles with ease and with a feeling of control at all times. This included driving the mountains of NC and NY. Its third seat is handy and I love its muscular look (compare to sister vehicle, the Honda Pilot).

Review

I enjoy the handling, the style and the comfort. It has been my favorite car purchase. Used to drive a Ford Expedition and this by far handles better. The service I get w/ Acura has been outstanding. Only one change, wish it had a little more storage hiding space near the driver .
