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


My wife and I looked at several luxury and non-luxury 7-passenger SUVs. The list included the Toyota Highlander, Cadillac SRX, Volvo XC90, Honda Pilot, Mercedes ML, and more. The SRX was the most fun to drive, but the XC90 had more safety features. The ML had the best "luxury" interior, but the Highlander and Pilot were all priced considerably less. Well, the MDX has more HP than the SRX, is second in crash tests to only the XC90, has better reliability than the Benz, and is more prestigious than a Toyota and Honda combined. Winning combination in our book!

Best Features

265 HP V6, blue ambient lighting (not on SRX or XC90!), 50/50 split 3rd-row, Acura reliability and quality

Worst Features

Make navigation available on non-Touring models for 2006
