Not that great for the money

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


An expensive SUV with mediocre habits. Drives a lot like a minivan. Reliability problems with radio, steering wheel controls (repeated), power windows (repeated), and occasionally it's difficult to start. For a luxury vehicle, there is a lot of road noise at highway speeds, but almost no wind noise. Window rattles and they can't seem to fix. Black interior is pretty boring, and the buckets are hard. Rumble in fifth gear around town, dealer says "just leave it in fourth". Nice fix. On the plus side, lots of pep, great fuel economy (19-22 all the time) and tons of room inside. The rear visibility is good also, unlike many SUV's. Tire wear is excellent - they don't wear!

Best Features

Engine performance combined with decent fuel economy.

Worst Features

Quality and reliability. Too many little electrical problems all the time. This car is good, but not worth the money, and it is kind of dull to sit in and boring to drive.
