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.
It's a Honda essentially so the build quality is very good. The reliability is top notch and it's super comfortable. Takes corners like a car but heavier and more robust and sure footed than a car. Comfortably holds 7 people with the rear jump seats. Comes with the tow package and great entertainment system. The Bluetooth is easy to setup and a clean and reliable functioning system without the need to restate things over and over. Heated seats (no cooling in mine) and a quick to get hot heater make it perfect for winter. AC is chilly and perfect. Split zones for climate control. Memory for seat positions. Large glove box and cubbies.
Great car! I am very pleased this car fits my on the go lifestyle and my growing family.
