Pros

The Honda for a family not wanting an Oddysey

Cons

Taking Care Of Bidness When My Crz Can't. — Strong V6 acceleration and it's a Honda for those that don't want an Oddysey. Although my oold Civic Si and EX handled immensely better, they were both stranded in the driveway when it snowed. I don't miss that steep, winding sloping cul du sac whatsoever...

I Would Buy Another In A Minute With A Tow Kit — Early model has only acceptable mileage Handles well in bad weather may roll in turns Nicely styled Lasts forever but maintenance is high I can't say this is a fun car unless you need space for large family and shopping

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

It will get you there.

Cons

Gas guzzler

I Love This Car — Great car on snow, rain, dry roads. Steering is tight and responsive. Excellent pickup and rides well at high speeds on the highway. It drinks gas like it's .25 a gallon. Great for hauling the whole family as you can fold down the seats to fit 8 or hide them away to have a huge compartment for moving your best friends.

This Is The Best Of The Mid Size — This vehicle comes with a stock 240hp V6 engine. It has eight seats and comes with auto climate control, towing hook and a outside temperature gauge. The pilot has a 6 disc changer and a dvd player too. I love it!!

Pros

Great Handling, Leather Interior, Great Legroom!

Cons

The Check Engine Light is always on so I never know if my car's going to blow up.

Family Man's Van! — A real solid SUV from a reputable car company. Performance - Better turn radius than a car! Takes corners easily at 50km! Cost - No maintenence required. (Except the Check Engine light) Fun - A little less than the Camaro. Good commute car.

Good Suv To Purchase And Will Last A Long Time. — The performance and quality of this car is unmatched to other domestic cars both in acceleration, braking and fit and finish. The gas mileage and maintenance is not expensive as repairs are not frequent. Fun car to drive around in.

A Few Dings And Scratches But Overall In Pretty Good Shape — I like that is get the best gas mileage in it's class. It also has and amazing amount of room for it's class and the third row seat was one of the first of it's kind. It's very comfortable. As for dislikes. It has many blind spots and it's turning is a bit funky (hard to explain) put over all this has been and excellent car.

Pros

Everything that makes it a honda

Cons

going from the Exl to the Ex, I lost the DVD player.  Just cuz i hate leather doesn't mean i can't have a DVD player!  My biggest issue is that it doesn't have a moon roof, nor was that an option then.

In Love With My Car! — An avid Honda Fan, I am SOOOOOO impressed by this sexy beast! We comfortably fit 6 people in it and never had a performance issue with extra weight. I looks gorgeous, especially with our chrome package. Yet another satisfied Honda customer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really Good Family Vehicle By MyGirlsDaddy

Great Family Hauler By rjreisch

Thought It Would Be Better On Gas Mileage By Giovanna26
