2004 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I researched for two years before purchasing this vehicle. I have an ACURA Legend that has remained reliable with over 180k on it. That helped convince me to stick with ACURA in the SUV department. The MDX feels sturdy, and drive very nicely. You have a commanding feel behind the wheel, and good visibility. The navigation system is awesome. It is more than just an expensive toy. It will give you the confidence to venture into unknown territory without trepidation. I once drove an hour down back roads that didn't show on most maps, and I didn't have a clue as to where I was, or how to get out. Then I used the nav, and it guided me precisely and ACURA-tely back to main roads, and home.


Best Features

Navigation System, 6 Disk in dash changer, and heated seats. Passenger side mirror that angles down when in reverse, along with the backup camera. Very roomy on the inside.


Worst Features

ACURA should use real wood for inside trim. Seat belt marks plastic badly when let go. Seats should be more sturdy for larger drivers. My driver's seat looks like it has more wear than it should for a vehicle with less than 20k on it.

Review

I love my MDX - it makes me feel really safe when I drive it. I'd had it 3 months with 4K miles when another driver crossed the median and hit me head on (he was uninsured, but that's another story). All the airbags deployed - front, side curtain, passenger. Other than a slightly burned hand from the deploying airbags, and the accompanying muscle aches and pains, I walked away in one piece. All the safety features, including the airbags, did their thing, absorbing the impact. My next vehicle will definitely be another MDX.


Best Features

Bose speakers are awesome!

Review

The car is excellent for a child going
off to college and not knowing the
area. The navigation system is very
handy and the pressure sensitive tires
have an icon that idicated when the
tire pressure it low. Though, keep in
mind just because the pressure is low
doesnt mean there is a nail in the
tire. The only fault I would have to
say is the camera which comes on the
navigation screen when you back up.
Objects are closer then they appear and
i'll just leave it at that.
