Pros

Comfortable with lots of storage and safety features. NOT a minivan!

Cons

Not super gas mileage... still minivan-ish on the scale of cool cars.

Fun Mama Mobile — I love my Acura MDX. It has a really comfy ride and a fairly peppy engine. The all wheel drive and VSA rocks in wet and icy weather. It's a super good mama-mobile... lots of storage and seating, heavy on the cupholders (although not quite big enough to hold a Rt 44 drink from Sonic... grah!). I've promised multiple times to drive this car until the doors fall off, and at some point, I hope that'll happen because I'd love to buy another one!

Pros

Amazing sound system, comfortable seats, good legroom.

Cons

Nothing bad... Just big and takes a lot of gas, especially in stop-and-go
traffic.

Satisfied — We bought this car used with only a couple scratches and it runs like new. We only had to go through an oil change. This car always starts successfully in 1 shot, even in freezing weather. The 4WD works well.

2004 Mdx — I love everything about this car. Love the exterior design and interior toys. Has supple power for every day use. Has over 90k kms but still retains smooth ride. No major problems .Very reliable.4WD is ok but snow tires is a MUST. Acura also squeezed in alot of stuff that were hard to find(the cd changer under the seat and the pc card slot)Had to go on forums to find out where they were. The mdx had pretty good mileage at first but it has dropped over the years. Currently the trip comp reads around 14-17 mpg at 90 ks. runs on premium too so keep in mind that fuel will definitely be a factor. The 2004 mdx is a typical Honda-made vehicle.

Pros

Build quality, comfort, space, overall value, effortless steering

Cons

Drives and handles like a boat in molasses, everyone and their distant half cousin's own one.

Is It Boat? Is It A Hovercraft? It's.... The Acura Mdx Review — As the first crossover I have ever drove and still retained by a family member it is in my personal opinion without equal. As usual you get the iron clad build quality of a japanese automobile with all the gadgetry to fly a spaceship. As a luxurious model that is synonymous with the Acura badging it has a lot of creature comforts that it almost, just almost, makes you forget that your driving rather slow. Of course the MDX while on the rather fast side of crossovers, there are better out there to tickle your need for speed. (most notably the European makes out there) What the MDX does make up for is that you get quite a bit for the money you spend, which by the way is quite small for a full sized cross over. The handling depending on who you are handles like a boat, slow and full of body roll. But then there is so much assisted steering that driving long distances become effortless to the point of feeling like one of the passengers. So for the best value for comfort, build quality and space to boot in a cross over the Acura MDX is hard to beat.

Pros

Big. Roomy. Comfy. Smooth ride. AWD for traction. Lockable diff for minor off-road use (like if I get stuck in the mud or something).

Cons

Premium-only (93 octane) fuel. 15mpg average with my crappy city commute. 19 gallon tank + 285 mile per tank + $4.15 / gallon gas = :(

Great Suv-bodied Alternative To A Mini-van (even If It Is The Same Platform As The Oddyssy) — Great luxury SUV that won't do well too far off-pavement (but, who in their right minds takes a luxury SUV too far off-pavement?) Great ride, great comfort. I am really liking this vehicle a lot. Now that I have had it for over 2 years, I must say I still like it a lot. I have had a few issues, but everything was fixed by my extended-warranty (even though I do have a $100 deductible.) Both rear window regulators failed at different times, causing the windows to drop unexpectedly. Those are about $250-300 fixes @ the stealership. Had the A/C quit working unexpectedly, and according to the stealership, it needed a new compressor clutch and something else... I believe they charged the warranty over $1k for that in total, but w/e. I did the timing belt a few months ago, and that was about $900... but that is to be expected with *ANY* car you have at about 100k miles. Other than that, it runs great and I still like it.

Smooth, comfortable ride. Dependable, safe, well built. I like the design. It's not too boxy like a lot of other suv's.

Cons

Gas mileage but even that's not as bad as some vehicles in its class

Best Choice — Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about this car. If I HAD to choose something I would say, it's white. I never wanted a white car but this one was too nice to pass up and white has sort if grown on me now.

Great Family Sports Utility Car — I really enjoyed driving this car everyday to and from work. It always came in handy whenever there was a lot to move around and definitely had a smooth ride. This was my first luxury car and I have to say that it is a great car!! Right now I am looking to down size, I do not have a lot to move around and no children and being that my daily commute is about 50 miles a day I would like to find something with better mileage. I wish that I could afford to keep this car, because it really is a great car!

Best 4x4 — I bought this 4x4 a couple months before my baby's born, its easy for me to get in and out of the car, got lots of space inside. The price is fair. The acceleration is good, pick up fast, around 280 miles per tank of gas, which is not so bad for a 4x4. I really have fun driving this SUV, makes me racing others too... ^0^
