What’s the average life expectancy of a 2004 Acura MDX?

I’ve found a really good deal on a 2004 Acura MDX, but I’m a little hesitant to buy a car that’s almost 20 years old. Do you know what the life expectancy of a 2004 Acura MDX is?

Twenty years! Time flies, right?
If it’s been well cared for, a 2004
Acura MDX
can last between 250,000 to 300,000 miles. In fact, some Acura MDX owners have reported getting 500,000 plus miles on their SUVs—but this is hardly the norm.
There are a lot of factors that go into a vehicle’s longevity, and
routine maintenance
car repairs
are some of the most important. In order to join the six figure mileage club, a vehicle needs to have the best possible care. This includes everything from basic
oil changes
to more extensive maintenance, like replacing parts when they’re due.
Your first step should be to check the mileage. If it’s on the higher end of the spectrum, it’s likely not to have too many years left in it. Getting all the maintenance records is critical as well, and a
CARFAX report
provides you with a complete history—including any accidents or recalls.
Good luck! And if you do decide to buy it, who knows…you might end up being one of those legendary 500,000 mile Acura owners!
