If you can afford the MDX, go for it. I have a Pilot, but if I had
just a bit more cash for a downpayment, I would've went for the MDX.
Don't get me wrong, my Pilot is a fine vehicle, but hey, if you can
afford to drive an Acura, why not? Plus, my Pilot just got higher
roll-over safety ratings than the MDX according to the NHTSA,
http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/NCAP/Cars/2003SUVs.html.

Go check out www.honda-pilot.org and www.acuramdx.org for discussions
on pros and cons of buying one or the other. You can always ask more
questions after you read up on some of the threads of discussions on
your inquiry. Good luck!

You're recommending the MDX, even though the Pilot has better safety
ratings??

I guess I am. But it's not as though there's a hug disparity between
MDX's and Pilot's safety ratings. Would you agree? Very marginal at
the most. There are people out there who recommend other SUV's which
has far inferior safety ratings over the Pilot and worse yet, there
are countless out there that drive them.

You make it sound as though I've just committed some great sin
recommending the MDX over the Pilot. Even in www.honda-pilot.org, of
which I'm a member and frequent contributor, I've always said that I'd
get an MDX over the Pilot if I could've afforded it. Quite a few
concurred.

I thought they were the same car, with only trim differences.

I guess you're right... chances are, if people are really intrested in
safety, they wouldn't usually buy an SUV to begin with.

That said, safety IS very important for me and my family, but hey, I'm wierd
that way.

I took a short ride in the '03 Pilot the other day. It is surprisingly
luxurious (for a truck) with the better trim models, has a DVD player etc.
I believe it is made by Isuzu.


You should take a test drive of both vehicles before you decide.

So then, is your car absolutely the SAFEST rated car out there then?
I didn't think so.

But, if you were so much concerned about the safety of your family, so
much more so than all the SUV buyers as you have claimed, then
wouldn't you buy a car out there with the SAFEST rating, with all the
latest passenger protection features, such as the side and ceiling air
curtains, the side impact airbags, the anti-rollover systems, the
anti-skil control system and etc?

Does your car have all those features? No? Oh, how come????
Wouldn't you be driving your family in a car with all those safety
features since you said you were so concerned with your family's
safety? Would this mean then, that you care less about your family's
safety than those people who are indeed driving around in a car with
all those safety features I mentioned? By your logic and claim, yes,
it would make you to be a less caring father and husband since you're
not driving a car equipped with ALL those safety features.

Hard to argue with that, right? After all, it's your own logic and
implication you expressed yourself.

Lemme teach you something. You see, sarcasm only works when you're in
the right. SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS though, will always make you out to
look like an idiot. You're right about one thing though, you are
****ing weird.
