So far, this is the best vehicle I've ever owned. I love it! It's comfortable on long drives. The mileage is reasonable for the size and power. There is plenty of people room with the 3rd row--Honda says it seats 8, but 7 adults are comfortable. If a child is the eighth passenger, you'd be okay. The only problem with the 3rd row seat, is that eats up 85% of the luggage space. You wouldn't want to subject anyone to the 3rd row for a road trip anyway.
Comfort, nav system, power, looks, heated seats, heated mirrors, adjustable lumbar support, AWD, awesome sound system. Also, the side air bags provide great peace of mind. Great value compared to other SUVs.
Illuminate and expand the steering wheel audio controls (seek function, etc). The controls on the radio itself are somewhat awkward. It would be nice if you didn't have to remove the 3rd row headrests to lay down the 3rd row seats--plus you'd gain the storage space! Increase the towing capacity.
