It's A Great Car — I have been using this car as extra emergency car and I have not had any issues with it. It runs great and it's very powerful, spacious and the seats are very comfortable, despite of most of SUV, Honda Pilot has a very impressive acceleration.

Excellent — This is a very good all around vehicle. It can seat 7 adults semi comfortably for short trips. When using the 3rd row seats, storage is minimal. When traveling with 4-5 people, storage in the back is sufficient. Ours has held up very well and we have been happy with how it has performed.

Excellent Family Vehicle — Very reliable. Nothing but scheduled maintenance needed. Full maintenance records available on request. Lots of storage space and leg room. We also added running boards to make it easier to get kids in and out of vehicle and a bull bar for safety.

My First Suv — me and my gramps got this lovely beast when my Thunderbird fell apart. i honestly wanted a Ridgeline but seeing as this was cheaper i decided to get this. after owning it for 6 months, it has grown on me. i use it every day for all sorts of reasons. groceries, emergency response, long distance travel, ect. overall, its a fantastic vehicle for whatever you need it for.

Comfortable — A great car to take on a family trip. It is extremely comfortable with enough room for a large family. It also has a lot of cargo space for long trips. It rides really smooth and quiet, even large bumps seem dull.

Pros

A big, nice looking Honda with a lot of space and amenities.

Cons

A big, bloated Honda that is a waste of space without at least 5 people on-board.

The Honda Suv — There is plenty of space in the Honda Pilot for carrying cargo and passengers. There are split-folding rear seats and even a hidden extra row in the back; just do not expect to put anything but a small toddler in these seats. The car is safe. It has front/side airbags, ABS, stability/traction control and on-demand 4WD that you will probably never use on the typical family commute. Not a bad choice if you need to go big.

Great Resale Value, Reliable, Room For All My Kids, And Busts Through The Snow Great! — It has enough power to haul around a whole car load, it never needs repairs, and can beat a Northeast Ohio winter. At first it was hard going from Volkswagens to a Honda, but I love love love my Pilot!

Caveat Emptor — This car is a great family car, however it can have issues. I have had to do repairs on my 2004 Pilot so often that it has not been worth owning the car. It has 73K miles and already the dealer is telling me it needs a new transmission. What a lemon!

Best Midsized Suv For The Price — Great family car. Lots of room to put a bunch of people in. Haven't had any problems with it so far, and it has 70000 miles on it. Powerful V6 3.5L VTEC engine makes it a quick SUV. Doesnt look big on the outside, massive on the inside. Good quality leather. Fun to drag race against other SUVs in its class, cuz it usually wins. decent gas mileage, especially on the highway. Accelerates from 0-60 in 8.1 seconds. Braking is ideal. Makes a nice ignition sound.
