My rental was 4-cyl AWD Model. It had 16k miles, and was solid - no squeaks or rattles. Very impressive for a rental car.
As far as power is concerned, I had 4 good-size guy in there most of the week, and it had no problem cruising at 75 mph on LA area freeways. Biggest guy was me - 275 - smallest was 175. Sure, it downshifted going up hills (like the 241 Tollway from the 91 to South County), but the engine remained smooth all the way up. Thanks to the 6 speeds in the Auto....
I just read an interesting post on the Borg-Warner AWD system. Their ITM 3e uses the same technology as they supply to Porsche. Not sure I need it here, but reviews on other sites are positive. Just my $0.02.

thanks for the laugh. Don't think I'm at stodgy yet, but it's fast approaching. Hey, it's a nice enough car, just not what I was used to, and I tend to imprint with cars so if it wasn't second nature right away, it didn't give me warm and fuzzies. Still a good ride, but happy to be back in mine! Well learning mine anyway. The whole blue tooth thing threw me.

I am a new driver and this is my first car. I am IN LOVE with the 2008 Pilot however want to start off "small" before I get to it! I have been interested in the Honda CRV 2000-2005 but have been recently introduced to the Hyundai Santa Fe. I must say I am interested in the Santa Fe as well. Honda's are great cars and want to make sure I am getting the same great quality if not better in the Santa Fe. Any suggestions on model, make, style? I also would like some help in determining things such as engine, wheels, the whole nine yards!
