Performance comes for the price of premium unleaded gas

Workhorse But Not Inexpensive — A real value and well appointed for its day, which sadly has passed. More current version of MDX has much more features. The good performance and acceleration of the vehicle only possible as designed with the high compression engine requiring premium gas. Still see many of these on the road, a testament to their longevity and durability.

An Amazing Car That's Built To Last. — I love everything about my MDX. It handles great, has a very smooth drive and is quiet but powerful. Before purchasing my MDX, I test drove numerous suvs but none compared to the acura. Minimal blind spots. Beautiful interior with heated seats. The navigation system has become my best friend! I am meticulous about the maintenance and in return my car still feels brand new. I've been in many other luxury vehicles but I always gravitate to acura. Definitely a good purchase!

Smooth Luxury Ride For An Suv, Nice — impressed how smooth this car rides. I've had Cherokee jeeps in the past and this is a work of difference. I love the heated seats for winter and sunroof for summer. The removable cargo liner is easy to clean and great for travel. The hitch is nice to have whether you use it or not, it's a nice feature.

Great Car — Loved it all except gas mileage. Handling was fast and responsive. Great up steep mountains. Good sound system, easy navigation, only year it offered on-star. Very comfortable to drive, it has great storage capacity with roof racks that fit my Thule rack.

Pros

Very Durable, Maintains Correct Alignment after repaired, Works well in rain w/o AWD, Comfortable on the highway, Fuel efficient on long trips (V6 - 22mpg), absorbs pot holes very good, is strong enough to hold 6 people and not hurt the suspension, easy to maintain like a Honda but with more power and luxury

Cons

New tires are expensive, city driving mpg about 15 mpg, transmission needs replacing at 160,000

Overall A Good Investment For Suv — I like that the spare tire in underneath the car but the car jack is tiny. The ride and comfort, plus cabin noise are all very good and fair. I enjoy the long trips I took in this car. Front seat passengers have excellent road visibility. Parallel parking this vehicle is quite easy for a large sized vehicle. I enjoyed the flexibility of the folding rear seats and the available 3rd row seats, when needs. The back trunk also works great for small to medium sized dogs, just like a subaru outback. I would encourage buyers to consider a MDX for the acceleration power and the sturdy, comfortable ride compared to the Toyota Highlander with rides like a Camry. Overall, we have loved this car for the last 7 years.

2006 Acura Mdx — Great truck. Very comfortable and quiet ride. Well worth the 24.5K I spent for it. I would highly recommend this model to anyone in the market for an SUV. The GPS display in the vehicle is sub standard when compared with my hand held Garmin but it works fairly well to take you from point to point.

Great Car — Wow so far so good no problems. great options list. However it is on the sluggish side but still is enough pump to get you to your destination early. Not the best looking of cars but the new one is flawless. It is a honda pilot under all the body and has a great record on repairs (none) so if ur going for this get it!!

It Was Great Until Gas Prices Tripled. — Severely bad gas mileage. 12 - 13 is realistic around town. Other than that, it's a good all around vehicle.
