2004 Honda Pilot

In 2004, all Honda vehicles came with a seatbelt warning light. The 2004 Pilot EX model with leather seats also had seat-warmers installed. All Pilots now have an improved navigation system as well as clearer access to the rear seats.

In addition to the quality and dependability we expect from Honda, the 2004 Pilot is a very comfortable ride that is easy to maneuver in any traffic and/or weather condition. Part of the beauty of this vehicle is the unibody construction in combination with an independent 4-wheel suspension system. This allows you to feel more like you're driving a car, instead of a big van. Still, consumer ratings for this vehicle are about 9.0 / 10.0.

Even though most of the Pilots are well stocked with many added features, the more accessories you want, the more it might affect the price. Therefore there is a wide range in pricing for the 2004 Pilot from around $17,000 to $29,000.

As for safety, the Pilot scored 5 out of a possible 5-stars in both front and side crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In addition, the 2004 Pilot has front-side airbags, though curtain side airbags in the back are still not available.

Fuse For Lighter

I have a 2004 pilot. I shorted the lighter and the radio died. Fuses under the hood are fine. Are there more fuses in this car?
