Nice, reliable, but boring ride
By Alan A on


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


Bought car new. Got good deal because new model year was arriving and dealer wanted to unload. Car has been very reliable. Mileage running around 19 on average - and I do a lot of highway. Acceleration not bad at low end. Handling too mushy... feel like is going to roll over when aggressive on a corner. Interior space is adequate, rear seating relatively roomy, but third row seat is a torture chamber for anyone over ten years old. Overall, car has been lackluster and boring. I had a Nissan Murano before this vehicle and that was a much more exciting car to drive. This time I bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and, other than the gas mileage, this is one hairy ride!

Best Features

Nav, XM, AWD

Worst Features

Don't know how much was changed when the 2007 model year came out, but hopefully they tuned up the suspension and made the car overall more exciting to drive.
