    Luxurious Yet Rugged — After years of looking from afar, I recently purchased a 2007 Honda Pilot EX-L. A good friend and my sister each have one (a 2003 and 2006), so I knew the product was solid. I was not expecting to be so impressed with it that I would purchase one hours after my first test drive, but that's what happened. The exterior of the car is beautiful. It is a very large and wide automobile, yet somehow Honda has packaged the 2007 Pilot to look smaller and more nimble. It drives nimbly as well, giving the driver a commanding view of the road from up high. But I digress-back to the exterior. The Pilot I purchased has roof rails, a nice silver grille, and foglights. These blend in beautifully to the beige-colored exterior. The interior of the car is just wonderful. In 2001, I test-drove the Pilot's luxury cousin: the Acura MDX. I have kept up with those SUV's ever since, and could not detect a difference between the two, other than slightly softer leather on the steering wheel of the MDX. The EX-L comes standard with leather seats. I wasn't sure I would want leather seats, as I live in Florida and sweaty legs on leather are icky. However, the car cools itself down so quickly, you barely notice anything. The console is efficient and blends well. Two solid cup holders contain various size beverages. There are two power outlets in the console, in addition to a rear-facing one next to rear-facing climate controls for the back seat. The navigation system is a lot of fun. At $2000 extra, I wasn't sure this was something I needed, as I have enjoyed a portable Garmin C330. However, this navigation is voice-activated and also provides a camera for when the Pilot is put into reverse. The third row of seats is easy to install. While obviously not as comfortable as the bucket seats up front, the third row is passable for adults, and would definitely satisfy any children. It cuts out sharply from the available cargo room, but I don't plan to use it too often. I loved driving the Pilot. It accelerates very quickly and smoothly. In city driving, I was able to pass cars coming out of lights and going at a steady speed (much to the delight of the salesman in the backseat. =D) The navigation was easy to use, though I must admit I was disappointed when I said, "Find nearest restaurant: ice cream" and it popped up with Thai food instead. I'm guessing these are kinds that will be ironed out as I learn to better enunciate (and realize what options are available). Oooo! And the EX-L also has a system that shuts down three cylinders once a steady speed is attained. It shows a little "eco" light on the dash, encouraging the driver to keep that little light on and save some gasoline. As for the negatives, the biggest one for me is the width of the body. While it's great for comfort and stability, it makes it very difficult to back the car into a narrow garage (yes, I'm reaching for the negatives here). Even though I already knew the 2007 Honda Pilot EX-L would be a great product, it has surpassed my expectations. It has quality and luxury everywhere one looks, and excellent safety ratings to boot.

    Rough And Tough! — It is a good family car. Its roomy and takes care of passengers and cargo both well. The access to the third row is not easy but since we did not want to buy a van, this was a good option to have.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliability, looks, price

    Cons: Handling could be better!

    Solid Daily Driver And Family Transportation. — I drove nearly all the SUVs under $80k in 2007, and this was the clear winner for me. It is a great balance of utility, comfort, power, and good looks. The leather seating is still in great condition after 6 years, and I've only had to change the oil and buy gas to keep it running. I added the towing package after the original purchase, and it has very capably handled towing duties.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good power and brakes, comfortably seats 7-8 people, and you can put real adults in the third row.

    Cons: Original tires lasted a long time, but had poor traction in rain and snow.
