Hi everyone!

I've been lurking on this site for sometime now while I had my deposit down at Ball Acura in San Diego. Even though I was concerned of the MDX being wide, I took you guys suggestion and bought it, but after living with it for one month I find it TOO WIDE to live with. I just sold it yesterday - didn't lose too much though. I'm MUCH HAPPIER now with RX 300 I bought instead.....much more fun and easier to drive, park in my garage etc. (also to park in parking lots and street areas) I'm sorry too because MDX was such a good car with nice styling and performance. Navi system was also really great, but oh well :(

BTW this is a really great site. The best I've seen. Too bad I don't have the MDX anymore :(

Goodbye and Good luck

Ya get used to it. True, at least for my wife and I (wife being the primary driver) found the width just a tiny bit daunting at first, realized it was in fact just an adjustment that had to be made. Now it is a non issue and in fact viewed as a distinct advantage over the X-5's and RX's we were first looking at. Example, just yesterday I was coming down Clayton Street in the Haight and there was several slower autos that insisted on driving down very very slowly (looking for spaces), double parked, and just plain stupid. I listened to my instincts and used my mirrors and zigged and zagged out of it. The X proved to be just as quick, and athlectic as my old '84 RX-7 GSL-SE in congested NARROW, SF traffic. Width? Not an issue IMHOP.
