Bought my 99 Acura used with 103XXX miles. I absolutely love everything about it. Decent mpg, roomy and very comfortable for the whole family. Had never even heard of them until I seen it sitting on the lot and it was love at first site.
Great first SUV; great interior; perfect size engine; awesome off-road, little wobbly at highway speeds though; loves to drink gas, but big tank; phenomenal cargo space; never got the chance to use the heated seats, but of course a good feature; wood grain looked a bit fake, but nice touch for a rebadged Trooper; those rear doors are the best design EVER; primo stereo; love the foot room in the back and front, as well as the ride height; seemed to be a decent amount of undercarriage rust, but I suppose to be expected from an older truck; rear drive horrid on ice as I learned from experience; lost my SLX to a winter-related accident, the thing saved my life! This beast is as safe as a tank!
HUGE sunroof; electric folding mirrors; height-adjustable seats; visibility; roar of engine start-up; power transmission mode for highway passing; being able to see over everything on the road.
Needs more cubbies in front for storage; bigger, yet more refined engine for better gas mileage and power; little more precise steering; shock-resistant CD player; in-dash CD changer would be nice too for an Acura; tuck undercarriage parts a little better (differential); make more! I miss mine!
Great vehicle, rugged, and comfortable.
Great on long trips. Great in snow,
and off road. Excellent fit and
finish. I purchased this with 18k
miles and now have 64k, with no
problems. I like it better than the
MDX. I drive my vehicles at least 150k
and feel this one will make it with no
problem. Still very tight, and wearing
Excellent visability, great cargo
space and well put together. I really
like driving it.
They start making them again. I know
it is a re badged Trooper, and it,s a
shame they stopped making the Trooper.
The SLX is a true off road vehicle with
ample cargo space. I've used it for
hunting and for launching a boat from
an unimproved ramp (beach). Visability
is excellent. We've used it for family
vacations and it will cruise all day at
75+. In spite of it's square shape is
not adversely affected by cross winds.
Ample cargo space and go anywhere
Has the power of a V8 and the gas
milegage to go with it.
