Great Honda SUV
Pros: Great Ride and useful size, especially inside space
Cons: Needs a little more powerExcellent SUV for family or those that need the extra space without the extra size! Could use a little more power and mileage is about 20 MPG in or out of town. Every need feature expect sun roof which wasn't available in 04. I have owned several Honda's this one has been great from the start!
Cons: noiceGood car; I have it since 2004; never had problems except routine oil change, replaced battery once, and replaced tires.
Cons: noneI love this SUV. Has great room. Very sound vechile.
Pros: solid build
Cons: bumpy ride
Advice: buy a moteroyou feel the road bumpy ride plasic under seats fall apart my 1994 bravada gave a much better ride.. i hope it lasts as long as my general motor cars did..
Pros: 8 way power seat, FWD with 4x4 on demand, very little blindspots!
Cons: only came with a CD player and Cassette for a 2004.... when my accord that was 2003 had CD changer...
Advice: Its a MUST BUY! If you want the most practical SUV, safest, and reliable in the market, the Pilot is it!I travel approximately 30k miles a year, I previously had a Honda Accord and before that a Honda Civic. Due to high mileage, I have the need to have a vehicle that provides easy access, and extreme comfort! So, The Honda Pilot so far has provided the comfort that I ever longed for in a vehicle, and the safety! I got rear ended by a Dodge Ram and I barely got any damage, and absolutely no injury on my body, and yet, the dodge ram air bags deployed, and sustained 7,000.00 of damage. This made me feel good that my Pilot is tough like a Rock and safe! :-)
Pros: For an SUV, very comfortable - good seats
Cons: Big gripe is the fact that you can't see the dash instruments in daylight without turning on the headlights. Dash lights should be on all the time.
Advice: Buy itVery satisfactory
Pros: My favorite feature is gas mileage (26mpg) I ALSO like the resale value.
Cons: Wood interior is not standard on the LX model.
Advice: BUY BUY BUY!!!I bought a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring Edition. It was a lemon. Chrysler bought it back. I thought that, in my Chrysler, I'd found a great car that one would be hard to beat....HA HAAAA! And even double HA HAAAA! The 2006 Honda Pilot is 10 times the vehicle. I am madly in love with a car...and I've never been a 'car' person before. This vehicle was a solid purchase.
