2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Compliance!

January 31, 2011

It rained yesterday in L.A. That means, besides drivers losing their minds, the roads develop more potholes and ruts. I use a stretch of Wilshire Boulevard between Santa Monica Boulevard and Beverly Glen to see how cars hope with the worst road conditions. The right-hand lane is pockmarked like the moon and, ironically, is in one of the most expensive sections of the city.

How did the Crosstour fare?

The Crosstour handled it well. No, I take that back -- it was excellent. Really. Let's hear it for compliance, sensibly-sized wheel and tire combinations and suspension travel.

Normally, other cars' steering wheels dance about like a paint shaker at the Home Depot on this road -- the car squirming to and fro. Not the Crosstour -- it glided over the chunked-up asphalt. I had a very light grip on the wheel and it tracked true and straight. Inside, the fury under the contact patches was abated to a dull thud. Color me impressed.
