Best choice for third row seat 4wd SUV
By Marc on
2006 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I have 3, soon to be 4 kids. But this is the secondary kid hauler to the minivan. The MDX is incredibly comfortable with just the right amount of refinement to be attractive but not overdone. All my kids are comfortable in the third row (tall 6 and 8 year olds) with moderate room behind 3rd row. Gas mileage has been 17 city and as good as 27 on the highway. Fold down seating is quick and easy. Stereo is good, not great. Runs fine on 87 or 93 octane.
Fully packaged base model leaving only toys as options in the touring models makes this purchase easy. 3 rows of seats with split fold down 2nd and 3rd rows make this a great SUV for trips, Costco/bulky shopping or packing 6 passengers and a driver with very competetive SUV gas milage.
Adjustable driver's side 2nd row seat like the Pilot counterpart. Power liftgate. The '07 copycat exterior redesign with the unattractive zebrawood interior may kill this once great SUV.
