Optional 3rd Row Seat? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 04-03-2013 10:11

I have attempted to sit in the 3rd row seat of the current get MDX and it's really cramped back there. I would love to see Acura offer the 3rd row as a dealer installed option. I think this would help to cut down on the weight and for those of us that would never use it, don't have to drive it around everywhere we go.

Thoughts?

you can remove the 3rd row seat easily, there are just few bots. as for weight, there are 2 seat at 3rd row, and not that heavy at 29-30lb each, total weight is 60lb.

Well for on main reason. You cannot tow more than 1500 lbs with an RDX.

It's interesting that the big deal is that they save 275 lbs of weight on this version. And some how another 60 lbs wouldn't be beneficial? Also, it would make a very easy dealer installed option priced around $500 bucks or so.

Agreed about the 3rd row.
I would prefer the larger MDX, and the higher towing rating.

Same for the Pilot.

But I have zero need for the third row. I would want the third row removed so I could use all that extra storage space. I use these vehicles more for hauling stuff than people.

and No, don't want an Odyssey, not enough ground clearance.

Just fold the 3rd row seat and be done. I certainly would love to have the option always there as you never know. Unless the MDX comes out with major electronic and mechincal issues Acura has another hit brewing. Stop whining guys, this beast is well equipped and improved in ever area.
