Well, it's not only slow, but if it's bright out and the screen hasn't been "on" for several hours, the picture is very washed out.

I don't see that on mine, but I have seen that on my friends 05 MDX.
#77 of 84 Booster seats?
May 23, 2008 (7:30 pm)
Went to test drive an 08 MDX today and loved it. Wife wasn't as keen though due to the smallish 3rd row. Planning on keeping this car if I buy it for a good while (5+ years), so out of curiosity, has anybody had any success putting in a booster seat in the 3rd row? Thanks for any help.

Not sure if you are aware, but you can adjust the brightness of the camera. While in reverse, turn the main dial clock wise. I think the screen is not only bright, but the ability to see in the dark is fantastic.

i know it gets good ratings but all suvs do nowadays. does anyone have any real proof it's safe? i like it's looks but am a little skeptical.

What, exactly, would constitute "real proof?" For that matter, what would you regard as safe?
SUVs and Smart Shopper

Let's see -- Five Stars on all NHTSA tests -- AOL give it all stars in like 20 categories.
You would really have to try to have to try to get the thing do something other than you intended with the great handling, brakes, etc. and even then there is an airbag for every cubic inch or the interior.
I researched it before I bought and couldn't find another vehicle at any price that was safer.
After my answer, a question -- It seems common knowledge that the MDX is very safe. Why do you ask?

The "Interface dial" is directly in the middle of the center display.

Yes. Unfortunately, I have that issue too. The problem is that a short test drive would not reveal there's an issue. It took me about a 1/2 hour to notice this but this is when I already had purchased the vehicle. This also makes my hip (has arthritis) worse. I hope that footrest can be removed.
By-the-way, I'm 6' 2" if it makes a difference.
I have tried several different seating positions and it doesn't help.
