Acura mdx- very safe and reliable. High performance qualities in an classy SUV

2005 Acura MDX Base

The mdx is a very reliable car! I have had it for about 6 years now and I have had a few recalls for airbags etc nothing serious. I have not had any major issues with my vehicle since I have owned it besides replacing a few things here and there and tires etc as on any vehicles It drives so smoothly especially for an SUV and has so much room on the inside you never feel cramped even with a full 7 passengers. The 3rd row folds down creating a larger trunk area wonderful for family trips! I always put premium gas in as it states to ensure the best performance out of my SUV. There is a separate ac control for the back seat passengers which is a nice touch. The leather interior and large display on the dash make it more luxurious.

Acura is a great family car

2005 Acura MDX Base

Acura is a trusted brand. My family had a choice of Acura or Honda. The Acura had more room. It's more comfortable. By chance we liked the color of the Acura better. The Acura has a sunroof which is very nice. I like the way the Acura drives. We have two children ages 1 and 2.5. It's very easy to put our children in the vehicle. It's also room for our children on longer road trips.

Four door SUV that allows you to carry most everyone and everything you want.

2005 Acura MDX Base

This car is wonderful. Super reliable, super comfortable. Excellent performance. Not too terrible of gas mileage, about 20 miles a gallon. Not bad for a 2005 car. Have only had a little bit of problems with the alternator and the battery going out on the same day but that comes with having an old car.

My review about the 2005 Acura mdx.

2005 Acura MDX Base

I like that my car is AWD, allows me to drive safely in different types of terrains. The vehicle handles well and grips well to the road. There is plenty of space for long car rides. Plenty of space with the 3rd row seat. There are very little blind spots which makes for easy driving.

Acura is a reliable vehicle for average car owner.

2005 Acura MDX Base

Overall, the Acura is a reliable car that always gets me places, even though I have a lot of mileage. Average working car. For people looking for a decent working car to get them places, this Acura is a great choice and can usually find them for reasonable prices.
