Our top choice Luxury SUV

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


After owning 2 Nissan Pathfinders, a
Ford Explorer, and a Mitsubishi
Montero, it was time to step up to a
Luxury SUV. I had never considered the
Acura a serious contender, leaning more
towards the Volvo or Lexus... but after
driving them all, there's no doubt that
this is the best choice for the money.
Hands down more bang for your buck than
the Lexus (although it was a strong
contender) and certainly capable of
keeping us as happy as the Volvo while
saving $7500 comparably equipped...
this is a great vehicle. I agree with
the editor's review, a little "bland",
but when you want a luxury SUX and
you're in the $40k budget - I'd highly
recommend the MDX! What a dream to

Best Features

This vehicle rides like a car, gets gas mileage comparable to a car with that much horsepower, and yet it feels sporty and fun (something the RX does not in my humble opinion). While it doesn't have the ultra luxury feel of the RX or the Eurpoean styling of the XC90, it's a rock solid option!

Worst Features

Change the A/C controls on the non-nav models... it looks and feels cheap! Add the power liftgate like the RX (that's a cool feature) and dual zone climate control should be a must have addition on a 2006 revamp... other than that, leave wel enough alone!
