Outstanding Family Vehicle
By IZJ on
2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The MDX is overall a truly outstanding family vehicle. Ours has 74,000 miles of intense use and wear. The balance of comfort, utility, passenger space, cargo room, handling and performance is remarkable. Honda is a packaging genius for figuring out how to create so much space in a reasonably compact vehicle. Acceleration is good for a heavy vehicle. Interior room is excellent and the leather seats are comfortable and durable. Many long road trips have been completed with enjoyment and ease. My wife and I have 3 children, aged 4-11. Gas mileage is solid, 16 city, 24-25 pure highway. An early electrical problem was fixed and we have had no other issues. We will keep our MDX for years.
Comfort, passenger room, cargo room. Driving position and view. Exterior design (roundly criticized as dull, but I think just the right look for this type of vehicle).
Softer touch plastics on the dashboard and center console. Replacement of plastic wood with real wood or metal.
