Just the right size. Bigger than our old 2000 Explorer. Rides MUCH smoother and 10 times quieter and more refined. Steers perfectly straight, has very steady wheel, so don't be put off by all that pulls right talk! 24 mpg on hwy, 18 in city, 20.5 mixed. Not bad for 4000lb SUV - it is a Honda, but not a Civic or Accord, so be realistic. Super quiet, comfortable, handles great, good power. This SUV deserves a very close look if you are in the market.
Build quality, fit, finish. Heated comfortable leather seats. Seats give you a hug, so might not be good fit for really big person. Rear view camera. Lots of pockets, cubbies, cup holders. Great info on control panel and dash. Sliding 2nd row seat, real-size 3rd row seat, fold flat seats, cargo vol
Honda philosophy of including almost everything in a small number of trims is great. So why not include the wiring for the tow package when the hitch receiver and transmission cooler are standard? My only real complaint. Consider getting the side steps. I got cheap online from Bernardi Honda.
