2003 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought a 2003 MDX a few months ago, a mistake. It had only a little over 60000 miles and is very poorly built. The transmission has problems. The headliner was cut too short and is falling out in the back. The rear window washer is about to fall off. And the right door has a part loose inside that makes a lot of noise when you close it. I would not buy another Acura. This company used to turn out good cars. What happened?

2003 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We love our Acura MDX. If you have children and do a lot of traveling this is the perfect SUV for you. The MDX rides so smooth you barley realize you're moving.


Best Features

Leather heated seats, back up mirror and nav


Worst Features

I have not one suggestion for improvement.

2003 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Great vehicle. It does everything very, very well while doing almost nothing flashy. If this sounds like you, this is your SUV. Safety is top-notch. GPS is excellent safety / convenience feature. Rear entertainment option is beyond value if you have kids. Rear backup camera is now a requirement on any future vehicle after experiencing it in this MDX. This is a must. We test-drove all competitors multiple times and this car won, hands down, in almost every measurable regard. The Lexus RX was quite nice but did not offer the convenience and functionality of this vehicle. BMW was OK at best. Infiniti was "so-what?". Great vehicle with minor opportunities for improvement.


Best Features

Safety, AWD, rear entertainment, backup camera, reliability. The vehicle stability assist when coupled with the ABS and traction control is top notch. In two separate emergency situations, this vehicle responded with amazing transparency and immediacy. I trust my life to this fine platform.


Worst Features

True low range for the Colorado winters when we need to plow through 24" / 30" of snow. Dual zone climate control. More steering wheel adjustability (like the RL) would be nice. Lumbar options would be better served if power.

Review

If you are looking for a very-well rounded SUV, look no further than the Acura MDX! Its a great looking SUV with available seating for up to 7 passengers. I usually get about 22 mpg overall but recently have been getting about 26/27!!! The touring/navi package is awesome.


Best Features

Overall quality, reliability, navigation, seats 7, bose, gas mileage... the list goes on.


Worst Features

Vents are prone to fall apart, otherwise none.
