I Love my MDX. Have had absolutely no trouble with it. I don't think the interior is bland at all. It gets the best mileage for an SUV. I think you get the most for your money with the MDX. Love the Navi too!
Love the automatic everything. Love the Navi too. Also love the "Get up and go."
The only improvement I would make would be an automatic opening of the rear door.
