Not all I dreamed of

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


Bought the car brand new almost three years ago. Chose it over Volvo XC90, mistake. Just after buying it the volume control on the steering wheel stopped working been replaced 4 times and still only works half of the time. Auto wipers come on with clean windshields on a sunny day and sometimes not at all when raining. Ive developed a rattle caused by a cheap weld on the heat shield for the exhaust and now my rear A/C quit working. With the hype Acura puts out I am utterly unimpressed. I've had trouble with the engine starting but only when parked on a hill, you'd still think for 40K you wouldn't have to worry about all this. Not recommended.

Best Features

Flat folding rear compartment.

Worst Features

Better 4 wheel drive (a low gear perhaps). Better electrical system (way too many bugs).
