Pros

What a great riding SUV, I corners like a sports car. I've really enjoyed it. Very comfortable for my 300 lbs.

Cons

Since a replaced the shocks I've got a lot of rattles in the right rear. Update: I tightened up a bolt on the shock and the rattle is gone. There's a noise in the dash behind the glove compartment, some electrical switch is broken. CD is broken. Mileage could be better, about 20-23, could be worse!

Love It, I'm Totally Spoiled For Other Cars Now. — Some small problems, but very few for a 11 year old car, Bought it with 145,000 miles, has 202,000 now. I can't complain. I've done nothing but change the oil and filter. I have to watch it when I driving other cars, because most of them don't handle as well. Just hit 225,000 miles still quiet and comfortable. What a great car.

Buyer Beware!! — I bought this thing new in 2001. Had a few minor issues in the first couple of years but I must say the last 3 years have been unbearable. From 2 recalls (transmission replaced after major hassle and front springs) to needing things I have never needed in a honda/acura like: New steering, new rear ac, new trans board, new engine mounts, new shocks (never been off road), new fuse - (yesterday it died on the road fronm this!) and more. Honda/Acura won't take any responsibility because it is out of warranty (80k now). But this all started around 40k! I am trading this week for a Lexus GX. Never will I buy a honda/Acura again!

Pros

level of fit and trim is superior to most cars that we look at, even 13 years newer.

Cons

Hated when that transmission went out, but the replacement trans and ECU combo has done the trick, thousand and thousands of worry free miles since.

One Of The First Awd Crossover Suvs — It has always looked aggressive and especially so when we added 17"x8" powder coated wheels and some light truck tires. Handled like a million bucks in the pouring rain at 75 mph as well as on every back mountain forest service road. It has been one of the most versatile family wagons we have ever owned.

The Ultimate Family Vehicle — MDX is by far one of my favorite SUV, there very few Luxury SUV out there that is designed with versatility, the design of this vehicle is well thought out for a family car and at the same time not stepping over it's luxury and sophistication. Acura indeed is one of the best design engineer in the interior amenities.

Meet Tyrone -- Black On Black 2001 Acura Mdx — Good family starter vehicle, huge trunk when 3 row is not in use. Very roomy and easy to maneuver the seats around, easy to drive, maintenance is affordable, same mileage as a TL, worth every penny! BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! :)

road noise, milage

We We Like The Mdx — Love the size, performance and ride. Would love for better gas milage and wish we had waited a year because the 2002 has a better noise reduction package. We really like the top safety ratings the MDX gets as well. Hopefully the new model due out in a couple fo years will solve some of the milage issues by the time we are ready for a new one.

Pros

Drives more like a car than a truck. Better than average gas milage. More capable off road than you might think.

Cons

Fit and finish are more on a honda level than an acura level. Not over powered.
