2004 Honda Pilot Review
GuruFQR51 says:
Very comfy suv. Smooth ride and comfy seats. Gas mileage sucks (get around 16mpg with my heavy foot). Car now has 200k miles and still sounds looks and drives like it was new. Engine makes a really aggressive sporty growl once you hit vtec and adds to the fun experience. 3.5 vtec v6 engine is quite peppy and punchy. It beat a friends 2004 porche cayenne v6 in a drag race. Throttle response is amazing it’s quite sensitive from a stop especially when it’s colder outside. Overal acceleration is very confident feeling. Brakes are ok they don’t feel super grabby but do a decent job. Steering is kinda numb and has some play on center but is precise. There is some body lean in corners. It’s extremely reliable and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat
