80,000 Miles and Still a Great SUV
By Keith on


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


Bought it new in July 2003 for a young family of 5. Road trips, in town, on the beach, in the mountains, deep snow, icy roads, high elevations. It has performed great through all of it. Drove it on NC's beaches on the outer banks and went right past Toyotas stuck in the sand. We now live at 8600' elev. in the Rockies and drive up and down 3000' of elevation change daily, often on unplowed roads. This car is perfectly balanced and always stays in control. We have had no mechanical problems. Only issue has been the seat heater, which quit working a year ago (and very expensive to repair). If I had to do it over again, I definitely would!

Best Features

All-wheel drive system and handling is the best on-road, foul-weather system you could hope for. Also love the rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Worst Features

Wish I had a heated windshield and daytime running lights.
