Just returned from a trip to California in my new '02 MDX. Car handled extremely well, passed most other cars going over 10,000 ft Colorado passes. Extremely comfortable front and middle, a little cramped in third row. At 75 MPH, still has a lot of additional passing power, and is very solid on snow/ice. Very good visibility all around and roomy with third row seats folded down. Gas mileage on trip ranged from around 18 to 22 MPH. Extremely happy with this car.
Comfort in front and middle seats
Plenty of power whenever needed
Plenty of storage room with third seat folded down
Solid grip on snow/ice ... no sliding
If it could get by without the high octane gasoline, that would be great.
