The car did not look like the picture. It was very worn on the inside and the paint was faded real bad on it. The engine did sound good but we did not drive it.

Great Family Car — Overall great car. Smallest, biggest SUV you can get. Options are solid. Leather, moonroof, seating for 8, power everything. V6 is plenty strong (250Hp), the four wheel drive works well for traction but not necessarily offroad capable. Recommend this car, I only got rid of it to get a van for growing family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Honda reliability

Cons: MPG not great in city; does fine on highway

Great Family Suv — Car has a nice tight turning radius, rides smooth and has a strong engine that will get up and go when pulling out onto the highway. I was slightly disappointed in the fuel economy, and the seats stain rather easily and would not clean as easily as I would have liked. We took our Pilot on many vacations and really enjoyed the trip.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great for vacations and hauling luggage, small furniture, etc.

Cons: Gas mileage not as good as I expected...only slightly better than a 4x4 pickup

It's Like A Toaster.......never Breaks, Never Think About It....... — I was surprised. We had a Honda CRV for many years and this has the same feel as the smaller CRV, but on a larger scale. It's a perfect vehicle. Balanced, does everything well. It like a toaster....never breaks.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent build quality.

Cons: Nothing........nothing bad to say.

Great Vehicle — This is an all around great vehicle. My family and I feel very safe in this car. We travel a lot and it is very comfortable and has plently of cargo space. I think for a vehicle of this size the gas milage is fair. Very nice to drive. The only downside is there is some road noise when driving on the highway.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great family car! Very comfortable ride and reliable

Cons: Some road noise when on the highway.

Look At A Pilot 1st Before A Minivan — I always go into D3 then have to go up one to go into Drive. Other than that I love it. My wife is tiny about 5' and I'm 6'1. We both can fit in this vehicle with no problems. Upgrade to the EX vrs. VP.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy, Quiet, Smooth, Powerful

Cons: They should of put a button on the streering wheel to enable the CD player.
