2009 Honda Pilot LX 4WD Review
TNDawg says:
We bought this car used with 125K miles already on it. We now have almost 200K and havent had the first problem with it. We have leather seats and DVD. Our main complaint is the stereo sound is terrible. The subwoofer in the rear makes us turn the bass off to make it bearable for third row passengers, you can imagine what that does to the sound. However, even when driving alone with the levels adjusted properly, the radio leaves much to be desired. There is also so much wind noise at high speeds that DVDs often cannot be heard in the rear. The truck suspension is very bouncy and tipsy for those with a sporty driving style. Seats are okay but manual adjustable seats can only be tweaked so much. Best thing about it is its longevity, if you want a car that is reliable without luxury, this will do.

Great Family Car. — Love the car but its too big for NYC. We thought we'd use it a lot more than we did so decided to sell it off. Never gave us any trouble. Actually seats 8 comfortably. Great for a biggish family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Spacious, reliable, true-3rd row seating, adequate power, low cost of ownership (unless you are parking in NYC), handles like a car.

Cons: Boxy looking and I am not a fan of the interior. Too much plastic.

This Is My Second Honda And They Are So Reliable And Now Safer — This car SUV handles very well. I got the supposed base model and it has everything on it. Everything. With the 10 airbags I feel comfortable driving with the crazies out there. It is very supportive of my back and visiblility is great. I highly recommend it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has 10 air bags

Cons: Big

09 Pilot Ex-l 4wd — I bought my 09 pilot Ex-L in the fall of 2008, I was in a rush because of the lack of vehicle we had from a crash. The build quality is exceptional,steering is light and precise and the room is excellent. If you plan on towing a boat or trailer consider that only the touring model comes with standerd wiring for 7pin. No worries though because A garage would be delighted to wire up the pilot in the stander bracket that is able to mount the harness.

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

Pros: Build quality, Steering 4wd system, storage

Cons: road noise, truck like ride, engine seems flatfooted when loaded

Pilot Of The Plane — The shape of the car is boxy, it is very fuel efficent for an SUV with the Cylinder Management Control which allows you to run on 3,4, or 6 cylinders. Very smooth and quiet even at high RPM's. This car has massive trunk space and is high off the ground for a nice view. The Appearence of the car is nothing special, but the car itself is.

Pros: quiet, big, lot's of trunk space

Cons: too boxy

Honda Pilot — The Pilot gets great gas mileage for an SUV its size. It insulates great! it keeps the perfect temperature inside and you can hardley hear the engine from the inside. the outside is a little boxy like the nissan exterra, but style isnt everything I look for in a car. I would highly reccomend it to any family looking to buy a minivan.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: lots of storage/compartments

Cons: 3rd row seats small
