Downsized for mileage but not so good...
By Paul Marsteller on


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


Maybe I am not a mid-size SUV kind of person, having driven something much bigger for years. To save on guess I talked myself into this car, liking it better than the competition. After 4 months I continue to be underwhelmed and am thinking of trading for a Seqioa. I don't recommend this to anyone used to a bigger SUV who is just downsizing for the better mileage. I'm getting about 17-19 mpg(70/30 hwy/city). Pluses: Good navigation system. Cons: Where to begin? Clunky and noisy over little bumps; lackluster hwy acceleration; inside windshield steams up ALL the time (never had this problem before; and I live in San Diego!); Sun seems to shine in too much; stiff to shift.. tra

Best Features

Good navigation, good back-up camera, quiet engine, good turning radius.

Worst Features

Get back to basics on controls and knobs (too hi-tech for its own good); improve ride over bumps; fix steamy windshield and too much sun issues; bigger mirrors; more power;
