Notice the quote is from FORD? Well that may be true with Fords Third row seat but according to some crashes my friends have that are rear end on the MDX...the occupants came out with minor bruises. No cuts, abrasions nor fatal injuries...Hmmmm...I think the NHTSA should do a crash test base on rear end collisions on SUVs with third row seats.rflagg said:
I think the statements appears in the MDX marketing materials but it says 35 MPH, not 40.MDXNYC said:Remember reading an article saying the MDX is made to withstand a 40mph rear impact without imposing 3rd row passengers. Cannot remember where I read that but will post the article if I do.
Last August, RIM32 got rear-ended by a fullsize dump truck going 40 and there was NO intrusion into the 3rd row ........ which is why I bought the X and not a Ford.rlm32 said:I'll tell you. Acura's claim is definitely true. Hit by a full size truck at 40 mph and no intrusion into the 3rd row seat area. Real life proof of a safe vehicle.
