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


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.
