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.
The Acura MDX, which entered the market in 2001, was designed to address the need for a high-performance people-mover with an abundance of luxury features. Although the MDX replaced Acura’s SLX, its build was actually based on the popular Honda Pilot. In true Acura style, this newly-developed SUV was infused with the highest-quality comfort and performance features available.
There are an endless amount of cars, crossovers, and trucks in the used vehicle market—and for families seeking a combination of utility and style, few vehicles address these needs better than the used Acura MDX and used Jeep Grand Cherokee. They’re among our top 10 SUVs of 2016, and both are equipped with all the fixings that make for a comfortable drive on the road. They can both be easily loaded up with plenty of cargo, and they’re both available with all-wheel or four-wheel drive.
When the best features of both SUVs and wagons were incorporated into a single vehicle — the crossover — the automobile industry was revolutionized. Crossovers have the ample storage space and off-road capability of SUVs, plus the added practicality and drivability of a wagon. What’s not to love about a crossover?
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
