Great Vehicle, needs updating

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


This is my first SUV and I went into one kicking and screaming. But the need for a 3rd row of seats put me out of my long cherished German cars. I compared this Nissan's entire line, Ford Freestyle, Pacifica, Higlander Hybrid, you name it. I had narrowed it down to the MDX and the Highlander Hybrid. Highlander was nice but felt less substantial and a lot more plasticky. When I drove the MDX it was clearly different than the rest. The quality just made itself evident in the way the dealer handled the transaction, the silky smooth drive train, quiet, comfortable, full time 4wd, warranty and the rest of the ride made it a simple choice. Fuel economy is Ok. Needs Premium, ouch!!

Best Features

Engine/transmission, memory seats, bluetooth, quiet ride and comfortable seats. I put a lot of miles on a vehicle so those were vital to me.

Worst Features

Needs updating. Looks OK, but could use modernizing. Could use power liftgate, auto sunroof, remote close of windows/roof, alarm in key, auto up/down windows for pass., illuminated steering wheel controls, one unswitched power outlet, climate control for passenger etc. All available on most SUV's
