2006 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The ease of driving and handling was what attracted to purchase this vehicle. On May of this year, I bought a new Toyota 4runner 2006 before I purchased the MDX. In my opinion, 4runner is a better built vehicle overall. The interior of the MDX is slightly cheaper, and I found the cover of the door knob actually moves a little bit instead of fix to the door, a small but annoying defect, and the interior looks cheaper comparing with Toyota. The back door of MDX can not close completely without slamming it. What a pain... If you just try to be a little bit gentle on the car, then the door won't close properly. In comparison, The 4runner has automatic door closer, and quality is awesome.


Best Features

Like the driving and handling of the vehicle.


Worst Features

The interior is a little bit cheap comparing with Toyota. Wish gas mileage is a little bit better. No sunglass, coin holder.

2006 Acura MDX Touring 4dr SUV AWD w/Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just bought a EOY 2006 and what a value. Loaded it came in under $38K and then added a GAMIN GPS 52 for $500.00 saving $7,000.00.


Best Features

Oct/Nov makes for great deals. The new 07 with new body type is great but for $14K more it's not worth it.


Worst Features

Like everyone knows this car's beauty if from within. She's low key. Perfect for wives who don't need attention from thieves.

2006 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have 3, soon to be 4 kids. But this is the secondary kid hauler to the minivan. The MDX is incredibly comfortable with just the right amount of refinement to be attractive but not overdone. All my kids are comfortable in the third row (tall 6 and 8 year olds) with moderate room behind 3rd row. Gas mileage has been 17 city and as good as 27 on the highway. Fold down seating is quick and easy. Stereo is good, not great. Runs fine on 87 or 93 octane.


Best Features

Fully packaged base model leaving only toys as options in the touring models makes this purchase easy. 3 rows of seats with split fold down 2nd and 3rd rows make this a great SUV for trips, Costco/bulky shopping or packing 6 passengers and a driver with very competetive SUV gas milage.


Worst Features

Adjustable driver's side 2nd row seat like the Pilot counterpart. Power liftgate. The '07 copycat exterior redesign with the unattractive zebrawood interior may kill this once great SUV.

Review

I really enjoy this Acura, the seating for 7 is great - can take my kids and their friends out in one vehicle. And can still park in my garage. I've owned 4 previous Acuras, so I'm loyal, but before buying this MDX I considered the competitors. The MDX was the better total package - great balance of sporty features with practicality, Also, it's the perfect size allowing for a useful 3rd row (kids).


Best Features

Lots of room. Nav is fantastic. Works great - easy to use. Rear camera is of more value than I thought it would be. Makes backing into parking spots allot easier. Sporty looks hides its large size. Power is very good and engine has a slight rumble to it under acceleration - FUN


Worst Features

I wish the rear window rolled down. Would like to see wider, sportier tires/rims. (I could do this myself).
