Great Family SUV - Safe and Content-Rich. Buy USED!! by Mongo on 03/31/2009. Trim: 2004 Acura MDX Touring w/ Nav and Rear DVD, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The features and build quality are top notc, and the sound system and NAV are class-leading. May family was hit in the side by a pickup doing 30 mph. The side airbags and solid build enabled everyone to walk away unharmed, with only minor damage to the vehicle. Traction in snow and sand (soft roading) is adequate, but not up to truck-based SUV standards. Fold-flat rear seats are very convenient.
Cons: The front seats are uncomfortable for tall drivers, and there is little leg room for those in the second row. Have had some intermittent gremlins with the steering wheel radio controls, and the resale is awful for an Acura. The factory Michelins were shot at 40K miles (evidence of dry rot). Put on Goodyear Tripletreads, which improved handling and traction dramatically.
Overall review: A great family SUV. Recommend buying it used, and letting the original owner eat the depreciation.
