2005 Acura MDX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
After doing a thorough research, we settled on MDX and have not been disappointed. This car does not do any one thing better than the competitors; Lexus has a slightly comfier interior; VW may have better off-road capability. But the entire package is better than the competition. Room for seven; Acura workmanship; lots and lots of power; and fair pricing. We love than Acura won't nickel and dime you for features such as leather seating and moonroof. Everything comes standard. The only negative - and it comes with the territory - is the gas mileage, though it is better than most SUVs.
Lots of horsepower; nimble handling; XM satellite radio; interior space (for both passengers and cargo); and conservative styling.
Better gas mileage; little bit more luxury inside.
