    2004 Acura MDX Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Acura MDX

    • ...provides one of the most appealing balances of comfort, performance, utility, safety, and style in the $35,000-to-$40,000 mid-size-SUV segment.

      - Automobile
    • The chassis's wide front and rear tracks and low roll center (6.2 inches above the ground) contribute to a genuine feeling of stability and control; this is not a tippy SUV.

      - Automobile
    • The 24-valve, all-aluminum engine, which is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, is derived from the new V-6 in the CL coupe and is capable of propelling the MDX to 60 mph in less than nine seconds.

      - Automobile
    • ...slick-folding third row of seats provides excellent versatility in this voluminous package.

      - Car and Driver
    • ...there's a vent tube for the differential so that water won't get into it when you are bumper deep (actually up to 18 inches) in a creek.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • A novel addition to the nav[igation] system, uniquely appropriate for a vehicle equipped to seek out the uncharted outbacks, is a feature that leaves 'electronic bread crumbs' on screen.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Acura provides an 'unstuck' button on the dash (that's what it says) that locks the differential progressively to get out of really tough situations.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • The MDX offers seven-passenger capacity and a unique four-wheel-drive system that prevents skids almost before they occur. All this is wrapped in a neat... package with the calm attention to detail expected of things Honda.

    • Some tire noise infiltrates the cabin, due in part to the aggressive tread pattern on the P235/65R-17 Goodyears on our test vehicle.

      - AutoWeek
    • ...a few owners, after living with the vehicle for a while, long for more power.

      - AutoWeek
    • ...doesn't have a 4WD-low gear range and the towing capacity is low...
