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

2009 Honda Pilot Touring with Nav and DVD 4WD Review
Auto_Sales_1 says:
This vehicle is our go to vehicle for long trips. It able to carry us and all the kids with their stuff. It has been reliable and comfortable on the trips we have taken. It is large, and my spouse primarily drives it. She drives less than 10 miles daily, so gas mileage is not an issue. Nice to know that she and the kids are in a strong dependable vehicle with will not get them stranded because of weather or other issues. Like all vehicles, if you maintain it is will last.

Power Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner worse.
"Its engine is a VTEC system."

"This is pretty similar quality for both, in fact maybe better handling from the Honda, not sure. "

Front Seats Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner worse.
"More comfortable, more settings."
Back Seats Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner better.
"More leg room possibly"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner better.
"Toyota 4runner has more cargo space if the Honda third row is being used. If not the Honda pilot i think has slightly more cargo space than 4runner."
Family Car Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner worse.
"Honda pilot is in general overall a more comfortable and luxury car to be in while traveling. "
Value Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner worse.
"Honda pilot is going to be cheaper than the 4runner, however due to this it loses its resale value much faster than the 4runner."
Would Buy Ranked 2009 Toyota 4Runner better.
"I can appreciate the back window of the 4runner going up and down for my dogs, and the overall longevity and durability of a 4runner will out run a Honda pilot. However the luxuries are nice, theres more to go wrong and break, versus the simplicity of the 4runners, and then lastly the resale value of a 4runner will always be higher than the Honda pilots. "
