This has been an excellent SUV. I use it often like a truck. I am able to fit a 16 foot extension ladder inside with the rear hatch closed. It has been 100% reliable. We have never had a problem with it. The OEM tires did wear out around 20,000 miles. New Goodyear tires are not even half worn at 40,000. No maintenance except oil changes and tire rotations. Fit and finish is very good. No paint issues. No leaks or rattles.
Safety features are very good. Honda appears to be very dedicated to auto safety systems. Sometimes too much so.
Low tire pressure alarm will make it where you can not lock out the traction control system (whatever Honda calls it). This causes problems in deep snow or mud. Diesel engine option would be nice. Front head rest too close to your head.
