Test drove this car. Absolutely beautiful. It felt slower than my 2016 MDX. Does Acura have a govenor on this to protect the transmission? Felt underwhelming. What I don't like is the flush rear end. The mildest of parking bumps from a careless driver will damage the metal rear hatch door. Also, I don't like the fact that Acura still has a timing belt that has to be changed every 7 years. Some Honda/Acura models do have timing chains. . Lastly, why do Honda Pilots have 3rd row air conditioning vents but the MDX still doesn't? The Lexus RX350 has quad zone climate control. Everything else about this vehicle is quite impressive though.
