I would expect fit and finish to be at least comparable to other vehicles in its price range. Also, I expected a cabin at least as quiet as cheaper cars. The MDX offered neither. The poor leather quality doesn't come close to others in its class, and the excuse some use that it's because it's more luxurious doesn't hold water. These are my opinions.
I realize that as an Acura fan boy you won't recognize it's short falls, nor the things that other brands do better. That's ok, as long as you enjoy what you have.
BTW- Chrysler will be building the German ZF 8sp tranny, under license, in Michigan.
