Best car for the money. This has to have the 6 cylinder to be lovable. Honda turned their noses up on this car and it was called a Hog because they couldn’t sell it. This is the best damn car out there for the money. It’s heavy and it’s ride is fantastic. People missed out on this car because the salesman were convinced it was a dog. I could sell these all day long. The ordering mistake was not having the V6. A car this big needs a 6 cylinder. Honda missed the boat when they stopped making these. I believe this would have captured a much broader market if Honda gave [non-permissible content removed] about advertising this bad boy instead of keeping it in hiding in the dealerships.
I live in Colorado and was looking for a sporty, performance, all wheel drive vehicle that would be fun to drive....THIS IS IT!!! V6 is great, braking is great, and the car is comfortable! Glad I made this choice, don't regret it for a second...(blind spots are as advertised, pretty tough, just need to be more aware)
This car model with the v6 has a motor warenty from Honda of America mine lost a cyclinder@110450 they rebuilt the engine and replaced most everything and I paid about 600.00 1day free rentalI was very happy to find it out after I reported it to the NTHSA
This is by far the best car / crossover I have ever owned. I have a 2012 EX-L V-6 and its just outstanding. This is not a Accord and is more Acura than Honda. The way it rides and performs is just outstanding. The rear view did take getting use to but is not a problem for me. The seats are great and so is the sound system. What I like the most is its the best of both worlds you have the performance if you need it and the versatility. Its also luxury too. Just a well rounded crossover and unlike anything else on the road. If you drive one you will see what I mean. I would highly recommend it with V6 and 4wd.
