2006 Acura MDX

There was a great line in "Bring it On" about resting on laurels; noted one of the characters, "Maybe a laurel's a good place to rest."   Apparently, Acura must agree, as the 2006 MDX remained almost entirely unchanged from the 2005 version.

The only available engine remained a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 265 horsepower and 253 lb/ft of torque.  Mileage stuck at 17 city / 23 highway, as it had since the MDX made its grand entry in 2001.  (What does this seem to indicate to you?  Redesign for 2007!)

Most buyers of this vehicle opt for the Touring trim.  Drivers like the navigation and DVD entertainment systems which are available with that trim.  As for allover driving impressions, drivers like the agility of the 7-passenger vehicle, but some have complained about the amount of time it takes to effectively brake.  Some love the third-row seat and the ease with which it folds down, but others have complained that it is too cumbersome to handle while balancing groceries and other items-a luxury vehicle producer such as Acura should be able to make this easier for its customers.
