    Typically Japanese. Sensors Go Bad. — Bought this car for the wife and kids. Manual specifically states "do not go offroad", or something like that. If you are looking to step on grass or stones, or do some fording, get a Land Rover instead. Even an old one.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Decent looks

    Cons: Do not even try offroading... or falling from your driveway to the grass.

    Wonderful Pilot — I love my Pilot. Before Honda decided to make it bigger with the '08 model, this model was perfect in both size and price-point. I use it for both travel and commuting. The only complaint is, as per usual, Honda does some really weird things with color options i.e. my interior is Khaki leather. Really? Khaki? No grey? No tan? Must have had a fire sale on that in Japan or something.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great SUV with wonderful gas mileage.

    Cons: Navigation system was Honda's first generation, so I had to have it repaired.

    Great All Purpose Suv. — A great car when you need what it offers, there are better choices if all you need is room for one person to commute to work

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

    Pros: Very capable hauker. 7 people and a 3,000 lb boat are no problem
    Very comfortable
    Good in the snow w AWD and Traction control

    Cons: Not great on gas mileage but not bad averages in mid 20s when lightly loaded.
    takes up the  full width of a narrow lane.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: If you want to be a soccer mom your husband can still be a man and not drive a minivan.

    Cons: Cant think of any

    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.

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

    Pros: reliable, loads of cargo space,

    Cons: theres a lot of them on the road

    Love The 06 Pilot — Great SUV- holds my whole family (me, wfie and 4 kids) very well. Great for traveling and gets good gas mileage (compared to comparable sized large SUV's holding 8 passengers). Really love this car and will probably keep it till the wheels fall off.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Size, EPA, style, comfort

    Cons: Power steering is known to be a little rough.

    My Pilot — The car has plenty of power, and it is very smooth for an SUV. It also gets reasonably good gas mileage for a car of that size. The third row of seats makes it possible to have everyone go with me in comfort. It's a fun car, I love the GPS and the backing camera, and I didn't realize XM radio would become such an addiction.

    Pros: Best car I ever owned.

    Cons: Really can't think of any...
