    2004 Acura MDX - w/Touring/RES/Navigation

    Pros: The large and powerful powertrain with the shift on the fly 4WD.

    Cons: That the temperature controls were so difficult to set. I found myself baking during the day and freezing at night sometimes.

    Advice: Just familiarize themselves with the controls; read their owner's manuals, and have a great time.

    The MDX had very good acceleration from the line although in the higher end gears it did have a tendency to lag behind. This however was only in the upper most gears at a high RPM. The constant power coming from the powerplant and it's unending torque do give the driver the feeling of being able to pull anything while at the same time being babied in a rich and luxurious velvety smooth feline coat. The handling was almost feline like, sure footed and sleek with the large front window giving the driver a great view of the road. The luscious leather gives a nice touch, although some of the controls could have been much easier to find and use while driving. Beside the radio, everything else was virtually out of my control due to traffic, which any normal driver would face. Once I got the hang of it though, it became much easier. I would suggest to any driver to familiarize themselves with this vehicle before venturing out into traffic. Once you do, the road will be at your fingertips.

    2004 Acura MDX - w/Touring/Navigation

    Pros: Nav and sound system

    Cons: Lack of (left) foot rest space

    Advice: Shop the BMW's - Lexus - Toyotas

    Drives like a luxury sedan, smooth acceleration, takes turns without the traditional suv tilting and rocking. Quiet engine and very low outside noise intrusion. All disk ABS brakes are truely ideal. Rear camara view when backing up is a great safety feature. Power seats for drive and front passenger allows complete comfort for any size person. Nav system is the best any vehicle has to offer. The Bose sound system, well, you may want to park this vehicle in your living room so you can enjoy amazing hi-fi after dinner. Similar SUV's in its class were also very good, you'll need to test drive them all and form your own preference, but for me, the Acura MDX was the one.

    2003 Acura MDX - w/Touring/Navigation

    Pros: Too many to choose from

    Cons: The accessability to the third row seating

    Advice: Before test driving the MDX, test drive the other SUVs and compare the difference.

    The MDX is the one SUV that you should consider to buy. The acceleration is great. Very smooth riding SUV, cannot tell that the transmission is switching gears. Has a very quiet engine. It's cheaper than the Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes and MDX has more features. Has enough room to accommodate 7 passengers and I like the versatility of 50/50 fold third row seating. Very efficient gas mileage. Very sporty SUV. It's $7000 more than the Honda Pilot, but it is worth it.
