The Incredible 2008 Honda Pilot — My white 2008 Honda Pilot is a great car. It can be a little noisy on the highway and a little tight on space for lots of luggage, but past that the bad parts end. The leather is top- quality, the seats heat up right away, the doesn't get too hot during the summer, and the car has lots of style. Though it's been updated (read: up sized), I like this older '07 and '08 Pilot better than the current version. Overall, it's a superb car.

You Wouldn't Know It Is An Suv — accelerates very quickly for an SUV, brakes just as fast and can handle any curve. very solid build, no problems with the body. leather inside is very attractive, outside is stylish. around 30K upfront cost, but gets about 25 mpg's. if you are looking for a spacious SUV without the SUV look, get a Pilot.

Honda Pilot Is A Great Suv! — This is a great SUV!!! There is plenty of room for eight. There is so much power that I occassionally spin the front tires under excelleration. The gas mileage is excellent for a large vehicle with a V6. We average 22 mph. The ride is quiet and the build quality is solid. The built in Xm radio is terrific. This is a great vehicle that is a lot of fun to drive. I wish it had more cargo room behind the back seat when the rear seat is up.

Leather Seats w/ warmers, great sound system, room for 8, best car I have ever driven.

Cons

16 mpg?!?! Dang that stinks.

Great Car, But Horrible Gas Mileage. — I'd love this car even more if it got better gas mileage. Drive like a charm. Smooth ride, great sound system, but 16 mpg is just not cutting it. We bought this as our family car, but with the price of gas, it is now just the commuter car.

Great Family Suv — Car has a nice tight turning radius, rides smooth and has a strong engine that will get up and go when pulling out onto the highway. I was slightly disappointed in the fuel economy, and the seats stain rather easily and would not clean as easily as I would have liked. We took our Pilot on many vacations and really enjoyed the trip.

Great Family Mover — Great functional and safe. Wonderful for the whole family. Cant say enough good things about it. I have never had a single issue with the Truck since the day I had other than routine maintenance and fuel. Very happy customer.

It's Like A Toaster.......never Breaks, Never Think About It....... — I was surprised. We had a Honda CRV for many years and this has the same feel as the smaller CRV, but on a larger scale. It's a perfect vehicle. Balanced, does everything well. It like a toaster....never breaks.

Great Vehicle — This is an all around great vehicle. My family and I feel very safe in this car. We travel a lot and it is very comfortable and has plently of cargo space. I think for a vehicle of this size the gas milage is fair. Very nice to drive. The only downside is there is some road noise when driving on the highway.
