We looked at the all-too-vanilla Honda Pilot for while, but we decided that it was so Honda that we couldn't bring ourselves to buy one. The MDX is a good compromise between blah and full-blown luxury. The ext. styling leaves something to be desired,but the versatility of the interior is what sold us over the Lexus RX330. We carry anything and everything in the MDX. Acura could do much better by adding the basic $38k items like daytime lights, seat memory and auto wipers. Ride is ultra smooth and quiet. Plenty of power and nicely appointed inside. A bit pricey for what it is though. Add auto-locking doors and power pass. seat to up the sense of value!
Smooth, quiet, power engine and very nice ride. Far superior to the Nissan Murano. Seats 7 easily. Quality interior with NO squeaks or rattles. Can Honda Pilot say that? Excellent dealer experience. Nice paint quality and great handling. Gave $35k on a $37,800 sticker. A bit steep for this car!
Rear seat belts rattle against side panels if not placed correctly. Very annoying flaw! We cannot get comfortable in the front seats no matter what we do. There is just not enough seat adjustment for me at 6' 2". The lack of seat memory makes this is awful cause we are always adjusting the position!
