Great for its time! by Gary on 03/08/2009. Trim: 1998 Acura SLX, Owned more than 10 years.
Useful?
Pros: Great utility vechicle, easy to park SUV, tight fitting doors. Outstanding 4 wheel drive with a real set of low range gears!
Cons: Poor gas milage, defective engine uses 1 quart oil every 500 miles, high speed handling poor. Motorized mirror motors defective and could not be repaired.
Overall review: Great SUV in size and ability for the year

Good SUV by Cool on 05/27/2004. Trim: 1998 Acura SLX, Owned 3 years.
Useful?
Pros: Very good overall vehicle. Fun to drive - has all of the options you want or need. 4 wheel drive is easy to engage and works very good.
Cons: Gas mileage - but it's an SUV. Highway ride is smooth - can ride a little bumpy on rough terrain.
Overall review: I would buy another. So far basic maint. is all we've had to do with the exception of a new starter. Bought with 56,000 miles. Now have 122,000 - still running good.

Did I say by Jubileedoo on 05/14/2004. Trim: 1998 Acura SLX, Owned 2 years.
Useful?
Pros: Beautiful canary teal blue. Lovely grey leather interior. Multi-position front seats. Plenty of leg-room in front and rear. Good cargo space. Easy entry/exit. Easy to find controls. I'm second owner. Nice carpeting. I've driven and ridden in many different cars, and finish work on this interior is top-knotch -no gaps, stuff doesn't just fall off, looks nice clean or dirty. Compass/barometer/altimeter has saved me from getting lost more than once. No interior warping or cracks. Great moonroof. Nice wheels. Sturdy, drives like a truck!Very maneuverable, powerful, excellent in snow or other inclement weather. Did I say FUN?!
Cons: No. 1- gas mileage! Awful -but I'm willing to give up a bit for the rest of this vehicle's perks. It eats oil, so I regularly drop two quarts in between oil changes, which I get done religiously. Air conditioning isn't blow-you-away powerful, perhaps could use tweeking there. They put cruise-control button very close to on-demand 4-wheel drive, could be bad if confused.
Overall review: Top quality on this vehicle. I have had some repairs, but nothing out of the ordinary yet, knock knock. Would recommend to anyone with advice: Imperative that you NOT assume you can forego oil changes, or go between oil changes without checking dipstick. Can't do that with aluminum engines. Heavy vehicle, you're asking a lot from engine. Perhaps heavier weight or synthetic oil will prolong engine life, or give slightly better gas mileage, but don't look for more than 10% improvement, even with oil additives. Also with aluminum blocks, remember not to continue running if your temp gauge goes over 50% mark. Pull over and shut her down, otherwise you risk cracking. Have taken it on a few long road trips, and it hasn't disappointed yet.

An Isuzu in Acura Clothing! by DMC from Chattanooga, TN on 12/19/2003. Trim: 1998 Acura SLX, Owned 1 year.

Pros: (No data provided)
Cons: (No data provided)
Overall review: I am the second owner, purchased the SLX with about 58,000 miles one year ago. Since then, the engine blew, practically all of the oil mysteriously disappeared and the oil light lit up after the rods began to knock. There were no signs of an oil leak, and there were no signs that it was burning oil. This was the professional opinion of two separate mechanics. I replaced the engine at 70,000 miles. Two months and 4,000 miles later the transmission has gone out. I have almost doubled my investment in this money pit. This is not what I expected from a top-of-the-line auto maker. The engine is an Isuzu Trooper engine, not a Honda product. I have been very disappointed with the performance and reliability of this vehicle.
