Didn't this guy do the same thing with the Pilot just before the embargo was lifted?

I spent 15 mins in a Pilot yesterday, and other than the looks of the armrest, I found it to be quite comfortable, and really comparable to my Element SC center console. Seeing as how I wont have to manually shift anymore, my arm resting place may change..

Too early for that. Some mics are extremely sensitive. Notice they weren't hollering at each other to talk.

The one thing could see is ride quality. The suspension was soaking most everything up quite nicely as the occupants weren't bouncing around. I live in TX and ride quite frequently on these rural 2 lane roads. They pave them the cheapest way possible and they aren't quality by any means. 58 hours to go :D

Living in Texas myself, I also find that many roads were cheaply resurfaced by milling then pouring down a layer of tar followed by gravel resulting in coarse, tire-eating pavement that is very loud. Noise isolation is very important here. Fortunately, this resurfacing method seems to be on the decline, but I still see it used.

All six of my Hondas roar loudly over this stuff to the point you have to raise your voice to carry on a conversation with the front passenger - you can forget about talking to the rear passengers. On the other hand, on new, smooth, "rubbery" asphalt pavement they've all been impressively quiet.
