    I Would Buy Another In A Minute With A Tow Kit — Early model has only acceptable mileage Handles well in bad weather may roll in turns Nicely styled Lasts forever but maintenance is high I can't say this is a fun car unless you need space for large family and shopping

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Handles well

    Cons: Tendancy to roll in tight, fast cornering

    This Is A Great Family Vehicle. — Honda Pilots are well known as vehicles that are well built and perform better than most of their SUV competitors. Better acceleration and ride; better fuel economy. Better repair history. Consistent styling that allows an older model to retain its value. An SUV is NOT expected to be fun to drive - but this sure beats driving a mini-van!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable.  Comfortable Ride.  Lots of Room.

    Cons: Not a sports car.

    Its Amazing!!!! — This car is simply amazing!! Has great pickup on he road!! I havn't ever had any problems with this car, just the normal oil change and tires. It has great gas mileage! It pulls my trailer great, and my boat. The Dvd player in the back is nice on trips to orlando and tennessee, it keeps everyone quiet. the AWD is nice cause I don't have to be shy in the mud!! Its just all around a great vehicle!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its the Best thing for traveling!!!

    Cons: Nothing!!

    Stylish Family Vehicle — Peformes well, brakes excellent. Quick start and stop. I feel very safe with children. Auto 4WD is awesome!! What else can I say? It's nice to have the back seat with their own controls, like the hauling space in the back, where the seats fold down.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Lots of interior room

    Cons: Harder on fuel that you would think

    This Is The Best Of The Mid Size — This vehicle comes with a stock 240hp V6 engine. It has eight seats and comes with auto climate control, towing hook and a outside temperature gauge. The pilot has a 6 disc changer and a dvd player too. I love it!!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: that it has great mileage for its class

    Cons: a lot of maintenance

    Family Man's Van! — A real solid SUV from a reputable car company. Performance - Better turn radius than a car! Takes corners easily at 50km! Cost - No maintenence required. (Except the Check Engine light) Fun - A little less than the Camaro. Good commute car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great Handling, Leather Interior, Great Legroom!

    Cons: The Check Engine Light is always on so I never know if my car's going to blow up.

    Good Suv To Purchase And Will Last A Long Time. — The performance and quality of this car is unmatched to other domestic cars both in acceleration, braking and fit and finish. The gas mileage and maintenance is not expensive as repairs are not frequent. Fun car to drive around in.

    Pros: Reliability,

    Cons: Nothing

    Just My Take On It — Well, when i first saw it at the dealership, i wanted it terribly. I just fell in love with it. Everything about it, the shiny black, chrome trim, leather interior, not to mention, its a honda, which comes with honda quality and reliability. I couldnt wait to test drive it, and when i did, i was happier than a pig in shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, uhh, mud. one thing dissappointed me though, which still haunts me to today, is the lack of power. Its not bad at all really, your not going to be beating the carlos and the 'stangs at the stop lights, but its bearable. Annoying at times, considering that i live out in the sticks, which means daily scaling steep hills to get to and fro, which in turn means watching the tach jumping from a cozy 1500 to 2800. Its painful but we all bear our crosses.lol. That being said, i just love it!! The braking is the tightest and smoothest of any vehicle i ever drove, the response timing is delightful, and steering is all the above and then some! The Pilot is the best handling truck in the wind i ever seen. Seriously, with the radio blasting, i would never know i was in a tornado until i landed in kansas. Now i have the lx so maybe this is cheating, but the stock sound system is great sounding and the only changes im making to that is adding another sub or 2 for bass, but other than that, everything is just fine! The interior is very plush and surprisingly handy,and i never cease to hear compliments when i give someone a ride.For those with no boose in the house, or whose dealer wont text back cuz you still owe him $25 from last time and so you have nothing else to do but read this, i live right in the heart, or more like the large intestine of wisconsin, so our winters are'nt the worst, but they're nasty. And since im a maintenance guy at a hotel and a church, i always have to drive in these storms, and when the roads are always at they're worst. Never missed a day of work, or was even late because of 6in of unplowed snow on the roads. The pilot plowed through some of the worst storms and even high snow drifts i have ever seen, with ease.I still cant get over how smoothly it handled and easy to control the steering was on the daunting roads. Find yourself an empy parking lot, and some drifting is also easy and very fun! My honda is also one of the lowest maintenance cars ive seen. Gas mileage, well, that varies from person to person, but i got no complaints.

    Pros: mmmmm, how 'bout everything!

    Cons: kinda underpowered

    A Few Dings And Scratches But Overall In Pretty Good Shape — I like that is get the best gas mileage in it's class. It also has and amazing amount of room for it's class and the third row seat was one of the first of it's kind. It's very comfortable. As for dislikes. It has many blind spots and it's turning is a bit funky (hard to explain) put over all this has been and excellent car.

    Pros: room and comfortable. Has all the stuff a car should have and nothing is extra that is not needed on a car.

    Cons: Blind spots are bad. and It turns kinda funky.
