Great Dependable Car! — AWESOME in the snow or mud. I never have to lock in the AWD it pulls right out where other cars get hung up. It is roomy and has 3 row seating, lots of cargo room for grocery time or luggage. It is a great handling vehicle and fun to drive.

Good Luxury Suv — Dollar for dollar this is the best luxury SUV on the market. I hate the appearance (The new model is much better!) but it comes fully loaded and the purchase price can be negotiated. Don't strttle for the dealer's first offer.

Great comfort, handling and extras!

Cons

Expensive gas!

Acura Mdx Rcks! — Rocks in all categories! Has spoiled me for all other cars! Sorta disapointing I cant watch the DVD player from the drivers seat though! Expensive grade gas hurts too! But you gotta pay to play! Equally at home going to the mountains and driving coworkers. Somehow I always end up driving! Could it be the third row nintendo?

Excellent — Love this car. It comes with everything that the new cars have and then some. best purchase I have made. This car has 160,000+ miles on it. It still drives like brand new. Do the research on your own. You will not be disapointed.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

2003 Acura Mdx — MDX's are really really really solid SUV's. They are Practical, roomy, luxorious, Good looking, capable towers, quiet, cheep to maintain, powerful and Very good in Snow. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get a midsize SUV, used ones are especially good values.

Good Family Car - Teenagers Pretty Safe Driving It — Good, solid mid sized SUV, 7 seats with kids in a pinch, 4 wheel drive a must in New England. Pretty reliable, a few things need replacing in the 70k-100k mileage range. Not the most fun car, but a good family vehicle.
