I totally agree. My wife and I don't like black at all but we end up getting it because we want the Havsau Blue color bad :8:TPRENDER said:MY biggest hope for 2003 is they allow the saddle/ebony with each exterior color. The color choices are pretty limited if you have an interior preference (my wife doesn't like black leather). I guess Acura controls costs by not having so many potential different vehicles to produce. Infiniti and BMW have almost all their interiors and exteriors as possible configurations...not sure what some others do.
I disagree. We were glad to see that the saddle was darker than we remembered. It will stay cleaner and is different than most other 'tan' interiors I've seen. I think this is particularly useful in a "utility", family vehicle.TPRENDER said:The saddle is too brown and not the typical tan on a lot of high end vehicles...at least that is my opinion. The RL has a nice shade of light tan leather
Our TL-S has the Parchment which is a lighter color than the Saddle. I think the darker Saddle looks good with the Mahagony exterior.AcuraMDX2002 said:Both of my Acuras (TL-S and MDX) have similar, if not the same, leather except for the color. I have no complaints so far.
FINALLY!!! Someone else who has the terrible smell that my wife is constantly complaining about! What needs to be done to get rid of it? I am planning on shampooing all the carpet soon to see if that helps. We got the cargo tray for free when we bought the car, and if you put your nose up to that, it is the smell that is in the car.....so we removed it, but the smell still persists!! Any ideas!! We love the car, except for the smell!!! It is NASTY, and no it's not the "new car smell" for sure!!raddray said:The interior smell in the MDX gives people headaches and I have to open the windows so that my passengers don't complain... My S2000 has the same leather and smell... good thing the top is down all the time so that it doesn't stink...
Both raddray and swhtech compalin that the new MDX smell gives people headaches I suppose that if you say it gave you headaches then it did; to you?? However I have been a big part of this website since January 2001 and this is the very first time I have heard this complaint! If people (plural) are getting headaches from the smell then it must be a very few.raddray said:The interior smell in the MDX gives people headaches
