Great SUV but no where close do MDX

2012 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased 2012 EXl with Nav almost 2 years ago.
Averaging 17mpg city, 21 hwy.
Far less than rated but that's the case on all cars I've driven save my 2008 bmw 3 series that gets more than epa ratings...
Drives well, have issues with front tires on lose ground given the power of the suv, tires do slip especially given the tires since they are for mpg vs handling.
inside, appointments are great.
love the radio, blue tooth syncs well with phones via usb or blutooth.
standard audio package is good, did not see need for upgraded audio.
rear camera - mixed blessing.
use it only as general help, do not rely on it.
use your mirrors and turn your head.
sensors would be nice.
=fuel economy better than
mdx it replaced.
=seating for 8 is amazing pus room for luggage
Keys - Never had i had keys fall apart.
These are made out of cheep plastic and both cracked and one fell apart.
Honda does not cover these poorly made item under warranty.
Simply a joke that a $36k has a key made so cheaply .
Breaking distance is not the best but it is a large SUV
hdd radio search isn't that good.
front wheel spin is annoying and think honda anti skid control could handle better.
