Highs and Lows of an Acura MDX

I absolutely love my Acura MDX. It has been a great car that has helped me travel back and forth to Iowa the past 5 years. It also has helped me travel all over the state of IL during my masters. It has almost 200,000 miles on it and also does well in the snow. I love the heated seats, height of the SUV and it has very small blind spots compared to the newer MDX models. The car was previously owned and something that has been apparent is the amount of rust under the hood. The car has had many electrical problems and recently became stuck in Park. There was a significant amount of rust on a part that helps the gear shifter but it was fixed. Overall, it has been a reliable car for all the miles it has been put through!

Spacious, strong, & sleek.

This car was handed down to me from my mother, and for 16 years old, being used a regularly as it has, it is still incredibly dependable. It is comfortable, and very spacious-- which was great for my mom as she hauled a bunch of kids around to soccer tournaments for years, and is great for me now as a college student who has to move around semi-regularly. It is an SUV, so the mileage is not very good (15-16 mpg), but it is a fair trade-off for how much it can carry.

2003 Acura MDX - Still Happy and still reliable!

I really enjoy my Acura MDX as a busy mother of two. The spacious back seat is perfect for the kids and the huge trunk space is wonderful for everything we need for sports! We also love that we can easily pop up the third row so we can accommodate our kids� friends as well. Our MDX is a 2003, so we are sure to keep up with regular maintenance, but for the most part it is a great car and has been reliable for our family.
