2001 Acura MDX Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 16 reviews
The 2001 MDX was Acura's answer to the BMW X5 and the Lexus RX300. The MDX has three rows of seats in a leather which can help hide the dirt brought in by those occupying the rear seats.
The standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 240 horsepower and 246 lb-ft of torque. Don't like that engine? Too bad....it's all there was.
Mileage is fairly good for a larger SUV, with 17 city and 23 highway. The navigation system was very advanced for 2001, but wouldn't be quite so impressive now.
I test drove this car in 2001 and would have driven off the lot with one if not for a bad salesman. Reviews of it are generally positive, although many are quick to point out that the 2001 MDX is built on the Honda Odyssey platform, and the SUV is a little to minivan-like for them. While some call the styling "chunky," I thought it was kind of "big-butty" - seemed like the MDX was carrying a little too much weight in its behind. However, to this day, I still remember the soft feel of the leather on the steering wheel, soft as a Cole Haan wallet I had at the time.
