  • Great SUV - 1999 Acura SLX
    By -

    Bought my 99 Acura used with 103XXX miles. I absolutely love everything about it. Decent mpg, roomy and very comfortable for the whole family. Had never even heard of them until I seen it sitting on the lot and it was love at first site.

  • Best car ever had. - 1998 Acura SLX
    By -

    I just love the SLX. If youre looking for a reliable car this is it. This car has almost 200,000 miles on it and its still running great. All ive done on the car was change the oil the brakes and tires. I read some reviews saying that this car tips over very easily but trust me from the way i drive it Im surprised that it hasnt tipped over yet. This is a great car compact from outside and extremely roomy in the inside. IF acura continued the production of this car, hands down i would have one. I currently drive a BMW but i still have the acura on the side for emergencies and Im happy i never sold it since my BMW only gives me problems.

  • I miss my baby. .. ( - 1996 Acura SLX
    By -

    I bought my 96 SLX in August of 07 before leaving for college in Cali (Washington is home). I loved this car, my plan was to drive it til it died, and then drop a V8 in it , slightly lower it, and black it out (it was the green/beige 2 tone). :) Long story short I got hit by a drunk 18 days ago and its totaled, and the insurance company just offered me $3,462.35 for it. It was great for hanging out w/ my friends at college, driving to the beach, driving to the mountains, driving around town, on the HWY, wherever. It had a very solid, strong, tank-like feel, although sluggish (3.2L V6 in 2 ton vehicle), and in spite of having failed the 30 mph swerve test, it took the corners surprisingly well.

  • Been a Great Car - 1997 Acura SLX
    By -

    We bought this used 3 years ago. It already had 120000 miles on it. We now have over 150000 and have never had to do any maintenance. Its a dressed up Trooper, and Ive heard about the Isuzu engine burning oil, but this thing with 150K miles still does not burn anything. It had synthetic in it when we bought it, and have kept with that. The oil still looks pretty fresh at its 3500 mile changes. Maybe we just got a really good one, but this car has been great, especially for what used ones run. Our only complaint is its poor gas mileage for a smaller SUV. It gets about the same as a Suburban and is about half the size. It also rides a little to "truck like".

  • SLX Premium Package I Love It - 1996 Acura SLX
    By -

    I love this SUV! 20 MPG. Tows an 18 ft boat well. No problems in the boat ramp. Slips in and out of 4WD with ease. I would buy another. I wish I had bought this SLX new. Thanks

  • Rare Find - 1999 Acura SLX
    By -

    Great first SUV great interior perfect size engine awesome off-road, little wobbly at highway speeds though loves to drink gas, but big tank phenomenal cargo space never got the chance to use the heated seats, but of course a good feature wood grain looked a bit fake, but nice touch for a rebadged Trooper those rear doors are the best design EVER primo stereo love the foot room in the back and front, as well as the ride height seemed to be a decent amount of undercarriage rust, but I suppose to be expected from an older truck rear drive horrid on ice as I learned from experience lost my SLX to a winter-related accident, the thing saved my life! This beast is as safe as a tank!

  • Still a great value & ride! - 1998 Acura SLX
    By -

    Still own my 1998 canary teal blue SLX, still in great shape. I got caught in a wicked snow storm almost 2 years ago & went careening off the road. The vehicle remained upright & steady even though I ended up on the other side of the freeway & facing in the opposite direction! Still a great drive & ride!

  • Expensive Parts - 1998 Acura SLX
    By -

    Until now, my SLX has held up very well and I planned to keep it for another five years. However, the crossover pipe from the head just went bad (small hole formed) and the cost of parts is too high, $3500 worse case if both pipes need to be replaced. Reason - limited supply/demand not many SLXs were made so parts are expensive. Ive never seen this pipe go bad on other cars I recommend against buying a used SLX spend your money on an MDX - I wish I had. I loved my SLX but it was a mistake made by Acura for which SLX owners will suffer.

  • Great quality and functionality - 1998 Acura SLX
    By -

    5 years and almost no troubles to speak of. Very good quality. I wish I could say the same for my newer Volvo. Great space in the back, nice interior, huge sunroof. All and all, I recommend highly. A used one is surely a great value.

  • Comfortable but boxey - 1996 Acura SLX
    By -

    It is a nice vehicle, but its a little sluggish and boxey on the road. Feels and drives like a mini-bus. Gas mileage isnt good, but it does deliver when towing and hauling. Lots of space and pretty reliable. She doesnt quite hug the road, so it needs to be driven like a mini-bus. It also has one of the worst roll-over ratings, so drive carefully. Looks great and runs well.
