Default Should I buy an Acura MDX?

My local Honda dealership is selling a 2005 Acura MDX Touring with a little under 30,000 miles. The car comes with an excellent lifetime warranty, which will keep my upkeep costs low. The car looks like it is in great condition. Is is a dependable, reliable vehicle?

How much is it? And you mention "LIFETIME" warranty? Are you sure about that? It might have "pre-owned" warranty that warranties it x-miles or y-years after the basic warranty, but I doubt it would be a lifetime warranty.As for the vehicle, how much? If it's under $25K it's a good deal, if over, then too much. Anything over $30K and it's a bad deal.

yes buy it the MDX can drive and last very long,my uncle has one with 140k miles still going.also 30k miles is only the break in point for this motor, therefore the life of the car just started.

I'd have it (or any car I planned on buying) checked out by a mechanic I trust. It might cost you $30 or $40 but is well worth it. Also run a carfax on it to make sure the title is clean and it doesn't have a bad history.The MDX has a pretty good reputation, but you should always have a car checked out first.Also you need to negotiate that price. In this economy I'd bet you can get at least 10% off. Can't hurt to try. Car dealers (even the luxury imports) are dying to sell cars.
