My Pilot is just the right size for a family of 6 Adults! Now that my children are now adults, we needed a car to hold the 4 of us, plus their 2 friends. Its still small enough for me to drive around town, but large enough to take only one car when we all go out. I'm on my 2nd Pilot, and I love it!
I have put 500 miles on my brand new 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L and I am very happy with my purchase. I chose the Pilot because I needed a larger vehicle to accommodate my newly expanded family and did not want to buy a minivan. I am able to fit 2 infant car seats and 5 adults (driver included). The EX-L came with a backup camera, power lift gate, tri-zone AC, moon roof, XM radio, bluetooth and iPod input. I recommend the Pilot if you need to move lots of people and don't want a minivan.
Roomy, full of options and Honda quality what more can you ask for? Maybe a few more MPGs. Fuel economy is the only negative thing I can say about this SUV. I loved this SUV from the moment I test drove it. I highly recommend it.
