I was so excited yesterday, because for the first time, I fit 8 adults in the MDX. 2 in the front, 3 in the middle, and 3 in the back. I reclined the third row all the way back, and kept the 2nd row in the upright position. Although I had three ladies in the last row, they said, "it's comfortable back here." They did not want to leave the third row, even after I dropped off two passengers sitting in the second row. I guess it was from the neatness of the idea, but anyway, I just wanted to share the excitement of owning an MDX!!
