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


Review

Just purchased my MDX, but am happy thus far. In Austin, I bought it for invoice plus $220 for molding, wood steering wheel, tint, moonroof visor and roof rack. Deals are occuring. Shop around.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the zebra wood.

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


Review

Typical Honda noise. Cannot have conversation at highway speeds. Engine whistling noise during highway speeds while accelerating. Brake drum rolling noise while backing up and during braking at low speeds. Terrible Bluetooth integration. Only good for incoming calls. Backup camera never good when needed most, too dim and is not useful when backing out from garage.


Favorite Features

Good lighting even without xenon. Remote linked memory seats.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce noise.

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.


Favorite Features

Strong engine. Good looking exterior. Nice gauge cluster.


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

We have owned a 2001, and 2003 MDX. Both have the same problem. The steering wheel vibrates at any speed above 65. Tires replaced, wheel bearings replaced, rotors replaced and turned several times, tires ground force balanced and nothing fixes the problem. AC quit and multiple other problems.


Favorite Features

None


Suggested Improvements

Work on driveability and reliability

Review

I really wanted a TSX, but with the kids and boat, etc. that became impossible. I test drove this vehicle and could not believe it was an SUV. It handles (no kidding here) almost as good as my Audi A6 (don't laugh . . . really!) Very comfortable. Don't bother with the DVD package .. . you can buy each kid their own for a lot less. NAV however is well worth it. Surprisingly good voice recognition. Plenty of power (surprised here also. Bose system okay . . . Definitely get the Acuralink for Ipod . . . works GREAT. Some things don't make sense however, no lighted controls on steering, placement of clock . . . but next version expected to be better. A solid purchase.


Favorite Features

Nav System - Bluetooth - Acuralink Ipod Connector - Safety Record - Reliability - Smooth Engine - Good Cornering (For an SUV)


Suggested Improvements

Tiptronic Transmission, Lighted Steering Wheel Controls -HID Headlights -
