Very reliable!  Had since 2004 and had to only do basic maintenance.  Very comfortable ride!  Great in Minnesota snow!

Cons

Gas mileage not that great.

Reliable Honda — Felt very safe in the Pilot. Great vehicle for taking on a trip. Would recommend highly to anyone looking for a great family vehicle! I would probably drive it into the ground, but I'll get there before this SUV does!

Fine Car For The Price — It's a Honda. Drive like a front wheel drive even though it also has 4x4. It's not flashy, but seems reliable. Fuel mileage seems better than other suv's in its class. Nice radio. This is not my style, but I can see why it would be a favorite for some.

Pros

Rock solid. Plenty of power! Can you say Vtec? Comfortable inside. Hot heat and cold a/c. Stops quickly for such a heavy vehicle. Cargo room.

Cons

None.

Best Family Car To Have If You Really Don't Wnat A Mini Van. — This car is comfortable on long trips. Can swallow 4' x 8' sheets of whatever. Is generally very reliable. What I don't like is that Honda knows this transmission has a built in design flaw. I've had mine repaired rather than let Honda put the same thing back in. It has a solid look and feel to it.

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!!

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.

room and comfortable. Has all the stuff a car should have and nothing is extra that is not needed on a car.

Cons

Blind spots are bad. and It turns kinda funky.

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.
