This is my first experience with a Honda product. Purchased the car directly off the showroom floor. Beautiful black exterior with tan leather seats and wood grained interior; rear spoiler, loaded but without the navigation system. Unfortunately, the dash had a rattle from day one. After 6 trips (and counting) the dealership has not been able to resolve the rattle, and it continues to be worse and never stops - not something I expected from a Honda product. Previously I drove Ford Explorers, Mercedes C230 and Mercedes SLK 320.
All the 'extra's were standard features in the car. Body style and appearance. XM radio is great! Car got 36 MPG on highway at 70 MPH.
Sound system is poor, flat and weak. Better gas mileage in town. Location of heated seat buttons need to be relocated-moved away from easy access. Add compass. Seats are skimpy and hard (I'm 5'6" and average size). Cover over drink holders keeps popping up when bumped-suggest a sliding cover.
