Luxury SUV at a price

2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav and Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Having driven the MDX for several months, I've found it to be a wonderful experience. I've already taken it up to Lake Tahoe several times with no problems. It has plenty of power up the mountain with 4 power & equipment and ample braking power. My friends are impressed with its roominess. Being my first SUV, I looked at both the Lexus & MDX. I chose the MDX for its 3rd row seating. There's just so much more room on an MDX and not everything is an option. One thing to keep in mind, Acura recommends using premium gas for the MDX.
Navigation system is great. Initially, I didn't think I would use it much but I have. I also like the bluetooth phone integration. Comfortable seating.
Door locks don't automatically lock when car is started. Problems with HVAC system, fixed on recall. Problems with Homelink system, needed to be addressed multiple times on recall. No sunglass holder. No memory seats for the passenger
