Some Major Issues with the New MDX

2007 Acura MDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Sport, Entertainment Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Rear view is extremely limited. Very small side view mirrors and late to upload rear camera do not help. Back up lights are almost useless. The seats become very uncomfortable if you are slender. A seam cuts across your rear, otherwise they would be great. Our 2001 Lexus nav system was better that the one they pack in the MDX. The auto window lock-out locks the driver out as well as the passengers. Our dog continually lowers the windows with his paws, and turns on the heated seats both front and rear. The tail gate is slick, but the rear hatch opening is too small to fit furniture that, otherwise, should fit. The key fob is not intuitive. Take a long look before you buy.
The vehicle is very reliable with a compellingly beautiful interior. The auto-stick is nice while driving in the mountains.
Update the navigation system (I really feel ripped off by the one they offer for $2000). Speed up the rear view camera upload. Direct the back-up lights down to the street. Relocate those front seat seams! Let the driver operate all of the windows even while preventing use by the kids and pets.
