It's the ultimate driver's machine

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


The MDX is the ultimate driver's machine. The "ultimate driving machine" might be good for short hops from the mansion to the golf course. But the MDX is perfect for hauling 6 humans and luggage for a 10 day road-trip. Handling is crisp and taut. Interior room is adequate for 6 - if you put the kids in the last row. The convenience package is adequate neither underwhelming nor overwhelming. The safety features crumple zones, breakaway mounts, full curtain side airbags, etc. are uptodate. Mileage was a paltry 12-13mpg street and 20-25 hwy. For absolute comfort buy the Navigator; for raw power buy the X5. But if you're on a budget and want an all-round SUV that's awesome to drive buy the MDX.

Best Features

-Absolutely responsive silky smooth quiet engine that purrs when cruising but can roar when pushed. -Kids and adults alike will love these options: 6-disc CD changer sound system and the DVD rear entertainment system. -Handles superbly. Even the wife agrees that the MDX feels and drives like a car

Worst Features

-Lift the last row seats a little higher so an adult wouldn't have to sit in a fetal position. -Smoother shifting 6-speed auto transmission with electronic shifting or a manual 6/7-speed transmission. -Ability to switch between 2WD and AWD.
