Great Suv And Family Hauler. — Love this SUV. It sucks gas like crazy cause all I do is city driving (12-14mpg), but it moves. 3 rows of seats for the family. Lots of space to haul with 3rd row down. AWD is super in winter time.

Pros

Reliable, comfortable seating for six, low maintenance, low cost of ownership, fast for a midsize SUV with 244hp, fun

Cons

very basic, small cargo capacity with 3rd row seats up, fuel economy is poor, UGLY and small 16-inch alloys, road and wind noise

Very Reliable — I like that this car is reliable, there are almost no issues, and it hardly needs any repairs. The appearance is not that great, the vehicle is pretty basic, and the wheels are ugly, but the Pilot LX is still a good car.

A Great Family Car — I enjoyed driving Honda for 7 years and my spouse used this car during the back problem as it was a comfortable seat. Great height of the car. better than most of the SUVs. selling as I need to try some other SUV now

Want Another One — nice solid build honda quality. acceleration was 8.2 sec. 0-60, not bad for a 4000lbs truck. gas mileage is under 20 city/highway. big inside with 8 seats to accommodate 5 adults and 3 small kids. hoping to get another one in the near future

Best Suv Value For Money — Top of the line SUV c/w DVD player. Added Scorpion Parelli tires to fill out the wheel well. Handles great! Long distance trips to the mountains ,desert, city goes the distance. The body is a solid core and reinforced. On impact the car will not crush around the cabin area. Front airbags, side curtain arbags will deploy on impact. 5/5 crash test rating / roll over. Overall the car is very comfortable and will go the long distance. I've owned it for 5 years and nothing major other than break change, tires and battery..a little nuts and bolts is all it needed. Great car will keep as long as she'll run!

I Would Buy Another For The Money — This a very reliable car. We've had it for five years and no complaints. The only 2 issues, are not a vary gas saving vehicle, and is not a luxury car at all. But most Honda are not. If you want a reliable car tba can take you from a to z in the snow as well as in the summer, this is it, but don't expect to turn any heads

Great Family Car. — The family car that gets all of us to where we are going quite comfortably. It gets pretty good gas mileage and is AWD when we need it to be. Great power for its size as well. It also has a 3rd seat.

05 Pilot Ex-l — Kept car until 2007 with 51,000 miles. EX-L RES top of the line trim. Couldn't get Navigation and DVD so I opted for the DVD. Ass warmers could have been a little bit more powerful. Very light steering and the 255 HP make it an adequate family vehicle.

My Honda Pilot — gets great gas milage, is very smooth riding handles curves and ice well. The standard sound system is very nice, and i really love the 40/60 seats that fold down, have the third row seating has come in handy more then once and for a mid sized SUV ... we find the seating comfortable, The Vech 6 engine has surperior get up and go and i love how she handles on the freeway, over all 10 it is a great family car without loosing the sleekness of a classy SUV
