My dealer has their demo car in and they let me take it for a test drive.
I am not going to repeat what everyone else has said, it's a great car, way better in person, rides AWESOME, blah blah blh.
Here are just a few things that stood out to me-
-Very comfortable. Sitting in it, I did what a couple people have recommended, adjusted the seat so my head was an inch or so from the roof, moved it FORWARD so I could reach everything (I'm a bit vertically challenged at 5'8") and immediately when I started driving I was very comfortable. Did not need to get used to anything or adjust anything. (I still have not found a comfortable seating position in my wife's MDX)
-The ride is just amazing, smooth and very responsive. I did not feel like I was in a sports car.
-Perfect fit and finish, I could not find anything the was not alligned perfectly, and I was specifically looking for something so I could prove the car was 'human'.
-My opinion of the interior has gone up again. Pictures of the car seem to show a wide open blank area in front of the passenger seat, but sitting in it and everything felt just right.
-Audio system, this was a 2LT so it had the Boston Acoustics audio and it was amazing. Plenty of Bass, even for a guy like me who like rap. Also, the Bass is not just coming out of the rear speakers, you are getting a good thud from the door speakers as well.
CONS (yes, there were a couple)
-Passenger seat: My wife is only 5'2" and as soon as she got in, she hated it. The dash was level with her nose and there is no UP/DOWN adjustment on the passenger seat. As a result, she felt very closed in and did not like the ride. She told me the car was not practical and the model was going to fail after the initial hype.
-I may be nit-picking here, but there is a ring of rubber molding around the side mirrors I never noticed before, but for whatever reason stuck out at me this time. It is rubber like the roof ditch molding and it was black. I was hoping it would be color matched with the RS package, but when I hurried home and checked the pics of Salena's, it looks like hers is black too. Bummer. (Yes, I am definitely nit-picking, I had to come up with 2 cons)
Well, I guess that's it, so overall I was very impressed and very happy. And as others have said, now that I have driven one, it makes the waiting that much harder.
On to the PICS! EXTERIOR:
