Pros

I look forward to driving this vehicle. It gives a sense of confidence and safety that few other cars give.

Cons

I really can't think of one.

Its The Best In Class In Terms Of Looks , Quality And Reliability. — There is almost nothing I dislike about this car. It has so many thoughtful features and the materials are very high quality. This is the third Honda/Acura product I've owned. They've all been equally as good as this one has and all share similar attributes. American cars don't seem to share any of these traits except for a few.

Pros

This is a great family car and seats 8 people.  The car handles well in dry conditions.

Cons

Plastic interior scratches easily, exterior paint scratches easily, road noise/rattling.  
The interior is very cheap looking.  Reliability is bad.

I Liked The Car Initially And Love Fitting 8 People In There — At 60,000 the timing belt broke along with 2 associated parts. At 75,000 the power steering pump broke and they also told me I need to replace the shocks, power steering fluid and that the third pressure switch is broken and needs to be replaced. Cost for this work is over $2000.00. Leather on drivers side is starting to tear and this car has been garaged and very well maintained. 2/1/2013 - made all the noted fixes last year. Now the rear engine seal is leaking and they tell me it is around a 1200.00 fix.

Honda Pilots Are So Real. — I am sold on Pilots. Very simple and work well. Love it. Tons of space in the back, affordable, runs well. I can tow my boat with it. I can put my bike in the back. Im 6'3" and I fit in the car which is nice.

I Chose It Over An X5 — i went to a used pre-owned BMW dealer to buy an X5. my mind was made up. i was going to buy an X5, the dealer was janking me around and tried to sell me an X3, i drove it, hated it, then i drove the X5. and i was... underwhelmed... tried the Pilot, and it was great. lower insurance, better fuel economy, more room. and had more kit, for the price.

Very Good Car For Any Family And Especially One With A Need To Carry More Than Two Children. — We drove our Pilot for 8 years and put 151k miles on it. It drives very well, and the seating capacity is great! The OEM tires last a long time, but their wet traction is horrible. I replaced with Michellins, and they are 10 times better. Fuel economy is good for an 8-passenger car. The reliability is typical Honda. The car never broke down or left us stranded. Repair costs are reasonable. Buy your factory parts from a Honda dealer online and save a ton of money.

Wonderful Car — Really enjoyed my pilot, but my family outgrew the vehicle, we travel a lot and needed additional space and captain chairs. Had to revert back to a minivan. The pilot is so reliable and drives well. Never had a single problem with it.

Relibable And Dependable — I drive 25,000 a year and need a reliable vehicle and comfortable ride. The Pilot gives this to me. I only wish the MPG was just a little better. I get 20 and for what it is, that is good!
