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


Review

After 18 months, I can't find anything not to like about my MDX. This is my first Acura and second SUV. I am a finicky consumer and researched all luxury models prior to buying - it paid off! For the money, this is by far the best SUV in its class. Gas mileage was better than anticipated. And, it has the highest safety/crash test ratings. Quality, comfort, and value...I love it!


Best Features

Exterior styling, navigation system, XM radio, interior space, smooth ride, confident handling


Worst Features

Telephone charger should work without running the engine; that's all!

Review

I love my MDX as much today as the day I bought it. It drives like a dream and is very roomy. Just last weekend we took 6 adults over 3 hours drive away with luggage and everyone had plenty of room. Now if only they would come out with a hybrid with the new models...


Best Features

Navigation system is great! From NJ to Maine with only the system to guide us - it is wonderful! A traffic accident ahead? Just plot a new way home! It is always accurate and fun!!


Worst Features

Next model needs to have an optional hybrid. A premium gas vehicle with these gas prices is expensive.

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


Review

Great car after 18 months no complaints at all and no issues at all. Fuel Economy is much better than expected. 23.4 mpg on our last trip to OHIO running 75 mph. Gets 18.6 around town. Goes great in the snow on trips to the northwoods. entertainment system and is great. Nav is a little out of date. My wife will never drive a different suv.


Best Features

Back-up camera, blue-tooth technology, XM Radio, 50 /50 fold flat third row seat.


Worst Features

HID Headlights, More updated Nav System

Review

I'm not particularly a car person, but I have to say I really like this SUV. It's my first Acura and my 5th SUV. It's very quiet, spacious, comfortable, and the navigation is fantastic once you learn commands. (At first I didn't think the voice rec. worked well but it was mostly my lack of understanding it. Fine now.) Body style is least favorate but added wheel flares, side molding, and running boards that help make it less bulbous.


Best Features

Quiet nice ride, roomy, attractive interior, better SUV MPG, reliable, holds value, navigation, integrated bluetooth phone, sound system.


Worst Features

Body style, (didn't like pics of 2007 prototype either, Blackhole between seat and center console, air conditioners are still better on American cars, no auxillary IPOD inuts, the chargers should charge phones with the car isn't running.
