2003 Acura MDX Overview

New for the 2003 MDX are 20 extra horses! That's right, folks, after two years of 240 horsepower, the 2003 MDEX has a new, more-efficient exhaust system that bumps its horsepower to 260. Torque increased from 245 lb-ft to 250.

The relatively peppy 2003 MDX goes from 0 to 60 in 8 seconds, and gets fair mileage at 17 city/23 highway (although drivers are quick to point out that a lead foot severely decreases the mileage on this vehicle). The interior is cushy and comfy, with soft leather and wood trim.

Drivers of this car praise the smooth handling and all-weather capabilities. Criticism of the 2003 MDX includes complaints about a lack of storage space behind the third row. While most find it to be a dependable car, some have had problems starting with the day they drove off the lot.
