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


Purchased new two months ago, we have put 5000 miles on the MDX. At about 1500 miles the LCD display locked up (froze) causing loss of the ability to use the nav or to control the heating and air conditioning (a real bummer when you're lost in a strange city). After turning the car off for approx. 1/2 hr. it appeared that the electronics cooled off enough to start working again. The thermostat on the heater/air conditioner has never worked properly and the interior fogs up easily on humid days. Several other things, like loose retaining screws on some of the external body parts,etc. indicate a general lack of concern for quality.

Best Features

I like the body styling and the road handling of the MDX. Vehicle Stability Assist works very well. The MDX is fun to drive.

Worst Features

Daytime driving lights should be made available to USA buyers; they are standard equipment for Canadian buyers! The ability to program the doors to lock when the car is put into gear should be offered. Etc.,etc.,etc., Acura is advertised as the "luxury" line for Honda cars!
