It's a Honda essentially so the build quality is very good. The reliability is top notch and it's super comfortable. Takes corners like a car but heavier and more robust and sure footed than a car. Comfortably holds 7 people with the rear jump seats. Comes with the tow package and great entertainment system. The Bluetooth is easy to setup and a clean and reliable functioning system without the need to restate things over and over. Heated seats (no cooling in mine) and a quick to get hot heater make it perfect for winter. AC is chilly and perfect. Split zones for climate control. Memory for seat positions. Large glove box and cubbies.
Great for a big family and still not a minivan

Plenty of room for a family of 7 but does not drive or feel like a minivan. Great ride with plenty of power.

I have had 7 BMW's and loved them for their handling, looks and driving pleasure. However, I became very tired of constant problems, taking it to the shop and usually paying about $700 per visit.
So I test-drove a 2009 BMW X5 and a 2008 Acura MDX. The Acura has all the good looks and technical features as the BMW has and is just as fun to drive. It was also a better value for the money and I don't expect to visit the Acura dealer anytime soon for repairs. I've had the MDX for 6 weeks now and totally love it.
If it continues to perform this well over the next couyple of years, I doubt I'll even visit the BMW dealer when I'm looking for my next car.
