2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav and Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Just got this car and drove it up to Tahoe in time for 9 feet of snow. Handling was flawless. Didn't think I would like the XM radio and backup camera (both included) but have decided that they are good to have as well. I test drove virtually all other SUVs in this price range +/- $20k. Handling of the MDX was among the best, acceleration was adequate even at 65mph, height above the road was good.
AWD on the MDX is awsome in the snow and ice. Didn't slip even once in an entire challenging week of driving in record snow. Major plus -- seat lowers to a level where you can get in/out of the SUV on ice without risk of slipping.
GPS should allow coordinate inputs. Should have a non-glare display, occasionally can get washed out in the rare cases that the lighting from outside is wrong. Everything else is above expectations!
