2001 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Bought used 55000 and it filled up with water in first rainstorm - bad caulking on firewall seals. Broken front spring replaced. Oil jet kit installed. Tach surges 50-100 rpm every 2-3 seconds - dealer cannot diagnose after hundreds of $'s - now thinks it is torque converter. EGR valve replaced on warranty. Plastic vent controls snapped off. Rear wiper droops. Brakes cost > $600 to fix. Road noise excessive. Stereo system is weak. Fuel mileage is poor, especially in city.

Best Features

Good handling for SUV. Good driver seating position. Trip computer.

Worst Features

Poor climate control design. Need access to 3rd row from both sides. Steering wheel needs more vertical adjustment. Beef up stereo system. Reduce road noise.
