Known problems with 2002 model?

Hello. We are presently shopping for an SUV and find nothing that drives as well as the MDX for the money, not to mention other positive points.

Are there any recurrent problems that any of you 2002 owners may have noticed but not posted here? (It appears that most posts are for 2001 autos and the ones that caught my eye were a "howling" which was thought to come from the frame not being filled with foam, I believe), problems with the Nav or trip computer, and sloshing in the gas tank.) I had read a review that talked about the headlights and that the driver was concerned that he was outdriving them at 60 mph. Our local dealership has no MDX's for test driving, unfortunately, so I cannot check it out.

I just got my MDX about 3 weeks ago and I love it. I have put 1500 miles on it and I have noticed minor sloshing in the gas tank, but only when backing out of the garage and only when there is about 3/4 tank of gas, other than that I don't hear it.

I haven't heard any howling coming from the A-frame, but we have heard noise from the roof rack. It was very minor (had to turn the radio completly off to hear it) and we were driving 85 with a very strong head wing (approx. 30 mph). I don't expect to ever drive in that much wind again.

The trip computer/nav has been flawless.
