2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is absolutely the best vehicle I have ever driven. The MDX touring package has all the bells and whistles anyone can want in an SUV. A little pricy compared to some other SUV's but well worth the money. Acceleration is fast and smooth, with a very quiet ride.


Best Features

XM radio, front and rear AC control, auto memory seats, heated seats, trip computer.


Worst Features

Door and side guards should be standard

2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love everything about this car except the amount of wind noise on the highway. The navigation system is by far the best in the industry. I have friends with three other systems and they all envy this one for ease of use.


Best Features

Navigation System


Worst Features

Wind Noise on Highway

2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav and Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I just bought my 05' MDX w/NAV & DVD Ent. on 4th of July. I had and still do have Lexus 300 for the past 4 years and there's just no comparison. I wanted to buy a 7 passenger seating and was looking at Lexus GX470 and MBZ ML500. Compared all the vehicles by its features, comfort, gadgets/technologies, options, hp, torque, styling, and value.... with two hands WAY DOWN, MDX came out ahead. There's just no way that MBZ ML500 nor Lexus GX470 could compete. Both MBZ & Lexus's rear/back passenger seats are installed on the side of the trunk space....so inconvenient! If you want the BEST SUV, MDX is way to go. Don't even waste your time shopping around!


Best Features

Navigation, back up camera, Bose stereo, XM radio, DVD entertainment system, rear fold down seats for the 6 & 7th passenger, 265hp engine, ACURA's customer service, VOICE activation for NAV & Radio, Blue Tooth tech., ON STAR, GREAT PRICE, rear heat/air, heated seats, and 10 CUP HOLDERS!!!!!!


Worst Features

Front left & right heat/air control; Body moldings, nerf bars, trunk cover, & rear spoiler should come as standard items and not as options; rear heated seats.

2005 Acura MDX Touring AWD 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When my lease came up on my 2001 MDX I looked at everything in the Luxury class and just couldn't find another car that I liked any better. As a Real Estate broker I needed a SUV that was confortable in the back as well as the front. The reclining back seats are much better than the straight up and down seating in many other models. The NAV system is the best in fuction of any I have seen. ONSTAR and XM are also a great addition to the older model. The best car I have ever had (my 2001 MDX) got better.


Best Features

Driver's cockpit. NAV System with ONSTAR, XM Radio. Rear seating. Styling, road feel


Worst Features

Totally flat back area when 2nd row seats are down. (3rd row is flat) It is just hard to find fault with this vehicle

Review

There isn't another Lux SUV on the market that has the blend of size and utility with comfort and safety like the MDX. Seating for 7 with safety features like Onstar and all the airbags you could ever want. The review states that the interior is bland, but I would call it understated elegance. Everything is where it should be and the materials (dash; seats; etc.) are all top quality. The only things I wish it had are daytime running lights and automatic locking when placed in drive. Overall the wife loves it (even the nav system I had to have) and the kids like being able to have their friends all in one car. NOTE: The MDX is due for a redesign in 2007.


Best Features

Navigation; Onstar; Rear color camera that comes on automatically when the car is in reverse.


Worst Features

Daytime running lights; Automatic locking doors in drive
