The MDX rides pretty smoothly. Also has
decent pickup. I think the handling is
decent. Purposely drove it at a high
rate of speed to test braking and
maneuverability. Although lane
change is not as smooth as in a
car. It is a lot smoother than most
other trucks I have driven.(Rx300,Chevy
Blazer, Pathfinder and a Passport) Of
course I don't recommend anyone trying
this. One complaint. I was told
that on hills the MDX had some sort of
mechanism to help stop roll back. I was
on a (not so) steep hill earlier and I
happen to take my foot of the brake.
Immediately the truck began to roll
backwards down the hill. SO much for
that anti roll back feature.
I enjoy the stereo and the roominess.
Putting the faux wood grain on the
steering wheel would give it an extra
touch of classiness.
