USED ACURA MDX REVIEW
2004 Acura MDX
Available in multiple trims and with a host of luxury options, the 2014 Acura MDX can be tailored to your liking. Find the shortest route to your destination and use the latest technology to keep your family safe with a model equipped with the Technology package. It offers a navigation system, keyless entry and push button start, and a forward collision warning system. To keep the kids happy on long car rides, look for an MDX with the Entertainment package or Advance package.
Driving through rough weather such as snow or rain is easier with the all-wheel drive MDX SH-AWD, which starts at $44,290 and features the same upgrade packages as the standard model. You can also find exterior accessories including a ski mount, bike mount, kayak mount, and other items that make life easier.
For economical drivers who are looking for a cheaper luxury SUV, consider the older MDX models. Since the 2001 MDX was launched, it was well respected for offering the performance of a sedan combined with a very spacious and luxurious interior of an SUV. Some of the earlier MDX models come with a navigation system and improved stereo system; however, if you want a model that comes with more updated features, start your search with 2007 vehicles when the MDX was redesigned. Other enhancements that come with the 2007 MDX and newer models include improved performance, trizone climate control, and an upgraded audio system on the base models. Also a newer six-speed transmission replaced the five-speed one.
The 2014 Acura MDX earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2014 Acura MDX as a 2014 Top Safety Pick for its exceptional performance in various crash testing.
The IIHS conducts up to five tests to determine how safe a car is, and gives four ratings: good, acceptable, marginal, and poor. In all five tests conducted, the 2014 MDX earned "good" ratings. IIHS tests how the front, sides, and roof of the vehicle respond to a crash and how the head restraints and seats protect against injury. Acura's Collision Mitigating Braking System will warn drivers with visuals and an audible signal if a collision seems imminent. If it is, the car will automatically apply full braking power.
