The Touring model is vastly different in ride, handling, and drivability than EX. Took home an EX-L w/dvd on Saturday and the van had a shimmy in it and front end groaned on slight bumps. The tires were noisy and the radio was the pits. Not too hot for $35K. Back to the dealership on Monday and drove the Touring - light years ahead. Was able to "upgrade" for more money and am very happy execpt for the so-so speakers. It drives as well as my S420 Mercedes. If you can afford the Touring, drive it last and you'll take one home. Don't be fooled by the run flat sticker shock. $190 if you have to buy one from the dealer. Michelin will warrant them for 2 years @ no cost if + 50% tread left.
Tracks down the road like a Benz or Bimmer. XM,DVD,tilt/tele wheel,park sensors,computer,power doors,and PAX tire/wheel package that is NOT touted. The wheels are really 18" resulting in a low profile tire setup that makes it handle like it's on rails. Honda missed it in their marketing propaganda.
Speaker are of poor quality, dealer looking for alts. w/o ANC probs, and throw in a temporary spare for goodness sakes. Honda gives you the tool kit, but no spare. Spare available for about $200 total. Kit from dealer $100 then buy a tire. Better yet, go junk yard hunting next Saturday.
