Great Family Car With Seating For 8 — We bought this car to replace our Toyota Sequoia -- we were looking for an SUV that was just a little smaller but still could seat 6 children in the back when needed, with a little room behind the third row. We've loved the Pilot so far -- comfortable seating, performance is fine. Navigation controls in the 2012 is not quite as intuitive as I'd like (dial to change destination) but it's fine.

Pros

Good for bigger people.  Few problems.

Cons

Can't charge cell phone when vehicle is off.  4x4 requires more $ for routine maintenance. Not as much space in back than you think.

Dependable And Boring. — Battery system is weaker for today's gadget loads. Nice height off ground. Backup camera is very strongly suggested. It makes life so much easier in this vehicle. Good gas milage when really warmed up on the highway. More truck like ride quality.

Love My Pilot! — Other than poor city gas mileage I have nothing bad to say about my 2012 Pilot. I had a 2010 and the '12 is so much more refined. The engine is great, road noise is improved, the dash and cabin make you feel like you're in a much pricier vehicle. I love my Pilot, even though my wife calls me a soccer mom. The vehicle has seen quite a bit of snow/ice/slush (both backroads and highways) and the AWD has worked very well. My wife's Mexican made GMC Acadia Denali can't compare to my USA made Honda Pilot (go figure!). I would highly recommend a Pilot to anyone interested. If you want to buy mine I'll sell it to you for $100,000.
