Dont expect it to be reliable!!!

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


I bought this vehicle thinking I was buying a reliable Honda product (I've owned several Hondas that have had over 150K mi with nothing more than oil changes and minor repairs). This vehicle has been a big disappointment. Where should I start?? Been in the shop 3 times for transmission issues, they still can't fix the leaking sunroof after 4 attempts!!, car wouldn't start (turn over) a couple times. What makes this even worse is the ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS service at the dealership (I've tried 5 different ones) and Acura corporate customer service SIMPLY DOES NOT CARE. While I understand that any vehicle can have problems, how they take care of you says it all! Will never buy an Acura again!!

Best Features

Unbelievably good NAV system, powerful motor, smooth and quiet, spacious interior

Worst Features

improve the horrendous fuel economy (I get 12-13mpg in the city), and reliablity/quality needs big time improvement, and most importantly improve the horrendous after sales service at dealership and company level
