2014 Acura MDX: Rear Climate System Works Well
August 20, 2014
Not long ago I gave our long-term Nissan Rogue credit for having vents for the rear seat occupants. It was a small nod to a small, but useful feature. Of course, not long after that, it was reported that although the vents are indeed present they don't actually cool the rear compartment very well.
After a recent road trip in our 2014 Acura MDX, I can confirm that its rear seat climate controls work, and work well. Crank up the fan speed and it blows plenty of cold air. At least enough to make anyone in the rear seats feel cool while travelling in the second row on a hot day.
Obviously, the MDX is in a different class than the less expensive Rogue, but it's good to know that the stuff you're paying extra for actually works.
