Perfect, but no Hybrid

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


We're had our Premium model for almost a year, and we've thoroughly enjoyed it to date. No problems, as you'd expect from a Honda product, excellent comfort and room, and decent power. Fuel economy never has been above 19 mpg, however, despite highway only jaunts. Admittedly, these have been at high speeds (75-80 mph), at which drag would be substantial for a vehicle this size. If we wanted maximum fuel economy, we'd have gotten a Jetta diesel with a trailer for our stuff. For our needs, the MDX has been perfect

Best Features

Power, room, comfort, styling, utility

Worst Features

Cramped space behind rear seats; not built for fuel economy (diesel or hybrid option would be great if priced less than $2K more than current powertrain)
