Not True Luxury
By enlightenedacuraguy on


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


This vehicle is overrated, not true luxury. No backlighting on the steering wheel buttons so you can't see what you're pushing in the dark, not even an option. A/C controls are in an uncomfortable place, and rear controls have to be reset every time you restart engine. Battery died 4 months after brand new. No back heater in passenger seat, not even an option. Power seats are far inferior to the seats in my '03 Tahoe. There is no 12v outlet for second row passengers, except the one in the bottom of the center console, very inconvenient. No power folding mirrors. It is very uncomfortable to drive long distances for a male, 5'10", arms fall asleep after about 1 hour, and not enough leg room.

Best Features

Strong engine. Good looking exterior. Nice gauge cluster.

Worst Features

Put a light bulb behind a steering wheel button, and run a seat heater for the passenger back.
