The '05 MDX is a world above the '01 I had first and THAT was a great vehicle! This may not be the splashiest SUV on the lot, but it is much more quiet and nimble than any other I have owned. I think the gas mileage is fair at 20-21 mpg but sustainable for now. The turning radius still amazes me!
I would never do without the voice-activated GPS or the XM radio again. Frankly in a vehicle of this level they both should be standard.
Quiet could still stand some improvement at high speeds, and the passenger's seat needs more leg room for taller folks.
This is a great little SUV. It has several nice features however it is missing a few basic features. Only the drivers window is auto up/down and the sunroof is NOT auto either. Gas mileage is not as good as I would have expected. Overall I am extremely happy with this SUV. Acura offers the best SUV with the most options in it's class. Much better than the X5 and not as regular as the Lexus. A great buy if you are in the market!
"Clunking" noises that "can't be fixed". Said MDX just makes these noises w/ no remedy <-NOT an acceptable answer!!! Poor design features: no continuous visible outside temperature readout; recirculating air setting does not stay on-must be constantly re-set; Navigation system NOT user friendly. Also, static in AM radio. Over-designed in some areas; under-designed in others. Manufacturer not willing to remedy problems. Spent over $40,000 for a car that does not meet expectations.
XM radio; On-Star; Memory Seats;
Full-time visible outside temperature read-out w/out having to push a button to get to a screen showing temp; Full- time recirculating air setting; more straight-forward A/C operation-too many steps involved to get settings. Tip- Tronic transmission; navi-system jumps to wrong headings<-needs refining
