Any comments on why Honda lowered the recommended tire pressure on the EX-L, from 35psi on the 2005, to 33psi for the 2011? BTW, our 2011 tires showed 37psi at delivery!

Vehicle weight, load range of the tires, suspension tuning, could be a number of reasons. As for the overinflated tires, sounds like they got overlooked during dealer prep.

Honda engineers retuned the suspension for less road noise and more comfort and found that 33psi was the ideal balance for safety/rolling resistance and noise/comfort with the new setup running 17" wheels up from 16" in your '07. Glad to see a dealer actually check tire pressure before delivery, just re-adjust your tires down to 33psi on a cool morning first thing before you drive it. They may be right on the money when you do this anyway.

Why 33? The tire pressure given by Honda is when cold, so they should be filled to 35 psi when cold.
