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


Excellent vehicle for city drivers who need a large car. Runs smoothly and has huge carrying capacity. It is not a good 4x4. My previous car, a jeep grand cherokee, was far superior off- road. The Acura transmission overheated on one trip (luckily it has a light on the dash that warns you). On another the power steering failed (luckily the new steering rack was under warranty). The huge coil spring on one of the wheels even broke going over a regular pothole. It is rather delicate, not rugged. But if you keep it on paved roads you will enjoy the smooth ride, quiet engine, easy to use rear seats and cargo room.

Best Features

Easy to raise/lower rear seats and lots of space

Worst Features

Dash board controls make no sense. Related controls are not grouped together. Needs intermitent rear wiper.
