I was also surprised at how firmly this thing rides. The problem is that there's no real payoff in the handling. Our MDX (with the magneto-rheological dampers) both rides better and handles MUCH better than the RX, and it will transport 7 people in a pinch.The wood and leather are nicer in the RX, but the MDX is the better vehicle.
