Pros: "Roomy, well-appointed, reliable, cheap to maintain"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Bought on a 3-year lease, intending to trade it in as soon as the MDX came out. 16 years later, still have it. Incredibly comfortable, roomy, easy to drive. Although it's big, visibility is better than any car I've ever driven. Tons of passenger space, lots of backseat leg room (even with the front seats all the way back. Huge sunroof (love the light!). Above all, a pleasure to drive. Extra bonus - incredibly reliable, super cheap to maintain. Other than routine maintenance, only two major repairs (about $1,000 each) in 16 years. Even in the northeast, NO rust! Will drive this awesome truck till it stops."

I Love My SLX

"when i had this car it was so easy to work on, and some of the ideas they had were great quality, and truck had alot of heavy duty built in.cant hurt it, cant get stuck and i tried. sunroof is huge,and i still found storage compartments after years of owning hidden all over,the only thing i dint like was suspension was soft and would lean in corners to much so dont take them fast. but overall was great and i should not of sold it."
