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


Having driven a BMW 528 for the last three years, performance, handling and amenities were important in a SUV. I have driven many rental SUVs and had a reference base to other SUVs to compare the MDX to. The MXD won hands down! The 265 hp is just right for vehicles of this weight and braking is very responsive. The MXD resists body-roll in corners very well. The power lumbar support helps keep the driver in place in the seat. The voice command Nav and Bluetooth phone link is great. The Bose system is a 8 out ot of 10 in audio quality. Could offer more midrange control in audio setup. The MDX has already proven to me to be the best choice for my needs after only several hundred miles

Favorite Features

265 HP - Responsive Braking - Body Roll resistance - 6 CD In Dash - XM Satellite Radio sounds great (surprised) - Sound system quality is very good - Navigation and Hands Free Bluetooth Phone compatablity. All these make this SUV very fun to drive!

Suggested Improvements

Auto sunroof and passenger window switches. (Only drivers is auto.) Use laminated wood instead of artificial color plastic in interior. Develop learned voice recognition system user option to improve VR accuracy. Tighten door seals for wind sound. Provide midrange frequency sound system control.
