2002 Acura MDX Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I owned and Explorer, Grand Cherokee
and an X5 before buying this one. It
drives extremely well on and off road,
provides luxury and utility in large
doses and has a great sound system.
There is also the added benefit of
Acura (Honda) quality and I haven't
even had a small rattle yet.


Best Features

6 disc in dash CD changer


Worst Features

On-board computer screen space could be used a bit better.

2002 Acura MDX Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had an extrordinary experience
with my MDX. The ride is excellent and
the most features are convenient. I
have not been able to get the home link
to work with my garage door opener, but
otherwise it has been great. The only
bad thing to say is the Acura
dealiships know they have a good car
and are sometimes a little arrogant.


Best Features

Navagation system has come in real handy and easy to use in comparison to some of the others I have seen.


Worst Features

In addition to direct and easy as options, the navagation system should have an option for shortest distance. Often the direct route turns out to be the furthest.

2002 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car...er,truck...er,SUV.
I've owned it 2 yrs & have found
nothing that I seriously dislike & a
whole bunch that's great. I live in the
So.Cal. mountains & spend a lot of
driving time on curvy, up & down roads.
The MDX handles super. It is fun &
stable to drive. On ice & snow the AWD
really comes through. It has an amazing
amount of interior space considering
the outside appearance. The biggest
negative with the vehicle is the dealer
network. Having owned two MB's and two
Lexi, I've become spoiled by excellent
service. Acura dealerships(I've been to
three)are about on a par with Ford. Not
what you expect of a supposed luxury
nameplate.


Best Features

Comfortable seating. Excellent handing. Third row seating (for kids and grandkids). Navigation system.


Worst Features

The navigation system, although very good, needs a better database and method of finding businesses (I dare you to find a local Home Depot)

2002 Acura MDX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After shopping all the others for over
6 months, we decided on the Base MD-X
(2002). We almost bought an X5 4.4,
but it is too costly and no where near
enough room, (and the 3.0 doesn't have
enough power). After almost a year of
ownership, we like it even more than we
thought we would. Incredibly smooth
and effortless power/torque, great gas
mileage (up to 26 average on highway),
pretty good handling (but not quite as
good as X5), and plenty of room for
hauling, tailgating, etc. The base
sound system is more than adequate, and
by buying the Base MD-X instead of
Touring, you make up some for paying
close to MSRP.


Best Features

Torque/Power, gas mileage, room, easy to service, good long-distance runner, easy on the eyes.


Worst Features

Brake assist, Traction control & Tire pressure monitor should be added standard or available as options. (Stability control is supposed to be added for 2003.)
