I've always wondered why there is such a big deal made about the width of the X - it's NARROWER than my Suburban. It's only four-tenths of an inch narrower so I doubt I'll notice it but it just isn't that wide. I've had my Suburban since '95 and haven't had any problems parking it unless some idiot decides to park over the line into the space I want. Maybe it's an optical illusion though - my husband is convinced the X is wider than my Suburban; you would think an engineer could be convinced by showing him the actual measurements.MrPrescott said:I don't know how anyone can bring up the issue of width, or even big size, with the MDX. There are so many freakin Expeditions, Excursions, Suburbans, Tahoes and clones (Escalente) out there that are so ridiculously big, the MDX is a great mid sized car, er . . . van, er . . . truck,. . . whatever. I wonder how many people that critisize the width of the MDX either oogle or have these other obscenely big utes.
