Looked at Pilot, Lexus 330, Volvo X90, BMW X5 and decided on MDX due to Acura reliability, safety, price and engine. Pilot too bland, Lexus not enough storage, Volvo did not like turbo charged engine and price and BMW not enough storage, price and reliabuility. Have 7,500 miles and so far AOK.
Navigation system, Satilite radio, power and ice/snow handling.
Improved exterior with built-in door mouldings vs add-ons, option to override rain sensing wipers in delay mode, improved road noise at speed, more steering wheel adjustment, starting to detect minor brake rotor vibration but not bad yet, option to get rid of Nav warning at every start- up.
