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


When I first purchased by Acura, I loved it. But after the first year and several miles later the suspension is terrible. It bounces like a go-cart and the brakes are pretty scary too. I believe that it is the front wheel drive that causes the problem with this SUV. The dealer tells me that I have to come in and spend $600 to reset the suspension to the original factory specs, this must be a recurring problem with this vehicle. The air conditioner also makes a loud rattling sound.

Best Features

Nice interior and thoughtfully placed instrument panel. I like the rear air- conditioning, very nice for a hot climate.

Worst Features

Better suspension and brakes. My MDX has also jolted forword from the park postion when it is started. I am NOT happy with this vehicle.
