I bought a 2006 Acura MDX Touring Edition earlier this year. The car had 9k miles on it. The car still smelled new! I selected the Acura because I have owned a Honda for 10 years (Honda manufactures Acura vehicles) and experienced great performance and quality from it. The MDX is roomy and comfortable. The ride is very smooth. The vehicle corners well. Visibility is good while driving the vehicle. There are front and side airbags and child saftey seat latches for all rear seats (including the 3rd row seats). The 3rd row seats are small; I would only ask kids to sit in them. A/C responds well to temperature changes. There is very little road noise experienced while driving the vehicle. The heated front seats are a nice feature along with the Bose audio system and automatic lights/wipers. The car does not have navigation, but has a trip computer that displays time, MPG, miles for current trip, and environmental controls. Tthe gas mileage that Acura states for the MDX is accurate in my experience. The low MPG is the only downside to the MDX. If you do not commute long distances to work, then this car will work for you.
Love my new wheels. You can't beat all the bells and whistles for the price. I had been driving a fully loaded german SUV for almost 10 years and was skeptical about the change. I'm very pleased with my decision. It's very roomy and comfortable. the interior has a luxury feel. The navigation system and bluetooth capabilities are very user friendly. The third row seating is easy to get to and provides lots of cargo space when not in use. The drive is smooth and has very nice instant pick up when you need to increase your speed. The exterior can use more modifications. Its very simple. Additional Acura accessories will spice it up and give it a more sporty look.
