The MDX sits third behind the Pilot and Highlander
Motor Week also noted the fishtailing behavior of the MDX's tail.in the tight, fast turns of our track, however, the rear end swung out too easily.
I think that Honda's softer tuning of the Pilot's suspension, while slightly reducing handling sharpness, actually helped the Pilot's emergency maneuver. This, along with the assistance of other tweaks that Honda probably made.It was stable when pushed hard at our track. Maximum speed in our double-lane-change avoidance maneuver was fairly low, but the vehicle felt predictable and secure.
Hiker23 said:I wonder if the "proposed" decrease in realibility of Honda and Toyota is attributed to the fact that they are now built outside of Japan, that the cars are more complex (electrical systems), or that automakers now figure people are keeping their cars less than 6-7 years.
A combination of all 3?
