This is the first new vehicle we have had in many years and we are enjoying it tremendously. We took it on a trip to nearby Southford Falls CT State Park and I was pleased to see we got 19.3 mpg on a mix of 30-40 mph state routes (...a classical CD really helps mellow the break in period. 220 miles so far...)
Anyway, here is Southford Falls, their SUV filled lot, and our new MDX
I am not sure how to post multiple pics so this may take three posts.
Again, my thanks to all on this board that gave me a lot of insight on the purchase.
This is a prime picnic and popular fishing location and two of the trees in particular near the bridge are so filled with dozens of bobbers that it looks like they are fruit trees. It is nice in the spring when there is a good flow of water. The stream narrows into rapids and finally flows out under a covered bridge. There are nice walking trails.
Here is a site of CT waterfalls that has more info:
Thanks about the color. The dealer had to bring it down to Milford from Boston, so mile #1 for us started at 171. I sat in a black and in a taupe interior and felt the latter would be cheerier, but took at least some good advice from this board and got the leather warranty from the dealer. (I know, anything other than black is a rookie mistake) So, it just means to stop being an F-150 driving engineer in blue jeans (taupe & blue jeans thread) and start looking civilized.
