A Little Overrated
By VW on
2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I find the MDX to be more hefty and top heavy in driving dynamics than I expected. It's pretty thirsty at 15 MPG city. Engine seems rock solid and smooth. Ride suspension is tuned nicely -- not too firm, not too mushy. Should have HID and lane change signal without having to clicking on the signal arm. Stereo is pretty good quality. XM is nice. Navi and Handsfree link are a little awkward to use.
Suspension and engine. XM radio. Rearview camera.
Gas mileage. HID & soft lane change signal. Navi & Handsfree link. Lengthen arm rest & bottom seat length. Both are short, making it difficult to establish comfortable sitting position. Steering controls need backlight for evening visibility. Can't display outside temp & gas mileage at same time
