    Do you pass out from boredom when driving it or do they have an app for that? How's handling compared to the competition?
  • Didn't they also move to direct injection with the 3.5L? I believe the previous 3.7L did not utilize direct injection hence the low power drop when down sizing the engine.

    Interesting. I guess the Explorer pretty famously also downsized it's engines but also introduced ecoboost so its not exactly comparable. In the other direction, Mazda introduced the CX-9 in 2007 with a 3.5L V6 but it wasn't until the 2008 replaced that engine with a 3.7L that the car started bringing home awards. This probably wasn't a bad move by Honda/Acura; however, where all the reviews of the previous MDX stressed it's driving performance, that type of praise is pretty absent from the current model.

    @legacygt:? From Car and Driver's first drive review, the subtitle was "From the producers of the NSX, the most athletic of three-row SUVs. So far."
