2006 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The fuel economy is really not bad when compared with other SUVs. I average 19 mpg (more city than hwy). The ride is smooth and quiet. I am a realtor and my clients always comment on how comfortable this vehicle is. I enjoy the ride myself and only regret that I did not upgrade to the touring. The base stereo is really lacking and no passenger power seat is embarrasing in a vehicle of this caliber.


Best Features

Reliability. Comfort, ride, handling, power, xm-radio.


Worst Features

More standard equipment in the base package (this is an Acura, not a Honda). Fuel economy can always be better.

2006 Acura MDX Touring 4dr SUV AWD w/Nav, Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is barely breaking 13 MPG that's combined city/hwy. Called Customer Service to see if they can do anything about it because the dealer couldn't. The worst customer service ever, they said "There is no issue for us to address". WOW! That's after they put me on hold for 40 minutes.


Best Features

Smooth ride, navigation


Worst Features

Gas economy and customer service

2006 Acura MDX Touring 4dr SUV AWD w/Nav, Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

First off we do love this vehicle and except for a chronic rear door sticking issue, this SUV has been a great vehicle, drives more like a car than a truck, plenty of power and comfortable, family loves XM radio and navigation is huge help when traveling. We got the running boards, pinstripe and rear deflector which really helps dress the look up. Gas mileage is as usual disappointing but expected. We avg 15 around town and just over 20 on the road.


Best Features

XM Radio, navigation, ride and handling.


Worst Features

It would be nice if there was more room behind 3rd row of seats, hybrid model??

Review

I live in the mountains, lots of driving uphill and lots of snow in winter. Never had any problems in the snow with the AWD. I feel safe and confident. The front seats are very comfy, but the back seats could use a bit more room. I have a 3 year old in a booster seat in the back and he doesn't have all that much leg room. Still, I wouldn't trade it for anything and plan to drive it till it won't drive any more!


Best Features

Love the heated seats in winter. The trip computer is a nice feature, and I really like the thing that tells me how many miles I have left on that tank of gas. My son loves the DVD player, very handy for long trips. The bluetooth is nice, and the programmable garage door opener is handy.


Worst Features

More room between front and second row seats would be nice. Of course, with gas prices like these, it would be most excellent to have much better gas mileage, but none of the SUVs really have great MPG. Maybe a hybrid would be in order?

2006 Acura MDX Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle is overrated, not true luxury. No backlighting on the steering wheel buttons so you can't see what you're pushing in the dark, not even an option. A/C controls are in an uncomfortable place, and rear controls have to be reset every time you restart engine. Battery died 4 months after brand new. No back heater in passenger seat, not even an option. Power seats are far inferior to the seats in my '03 Tahoe. There is no 12v outlet for second row passengers, except the one in the bottom of the center console, very inconvenient. No power folding mirrors. It is very uncomfortable to drive long distances for a male, 5'10", arms fall asleep after about 1 hour, and not enough leg room.


Best Features

Strong engine. Good looking exterior. Nice gauge cluster.


Worst Features

Put a light bulb behind a steering wheel button, and run a seat heater for the passenger back.
