    2005 Honda Pilot

    a life saver on the road

    Pros: the size and AWD

    Cons: city gas mileage

    This is a perfect family mover with 8 people if necessary. The all wheel drive on demand has saved us on the road more than once in Iowa and Missouri winters.

    2005 Honda Pilot

    Excellent

    Pros: navigation

    Cons: gas mileage

    Very good vehicle. Replace a minivan and provided good space, better road performance than the minivan. Good for a medium size family.

    Honda Pilot 2005

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: Leather seats

    Although is very nice and minimum maintenance, suspension is very noisy, road sound is elevated and many interior parts after years are generating anoing noises. Fuel consuption is ok and seating capacity is excellent. Leather seats are not at the level the car is sold or marketed. Engine is very smooth and silent.

    2005 Honda Pilot - EX-L With Navigation System

    Pros: navigation system

    Cons: The shape could have been better

    Advice: Go for it, if you have group of kids to haul but don't mind spending a bit more on gas

    Bought it last July trading our 1997 Odyssey. My wife fell in love with it. Excellent vehicle which can haul 8 people but drives like a luxury car. Although driving is smooth, the road noise is prominent unlike Lexus RX or a Highlander. There is an option for adjusting leg space in the third row which helps kids with longer legs. overall an excellent vehicle extremely sturdy and safe with a lot of space inside. My wife is very happy with it most of the times except when filling gas. Compared to other SUVs, it has a reasonable gas consumption but compared other cars, it is a gas gussler. We took a long trip with 8 people (luggage on the roof rack), people in the back row seats never complained once of fatigue. The ride is excellent. The voice controlled navigation system is excellent and easy to operate. Overall an excellent vehicle.

    2005 Honda Pilot - EX-L w/Rear Ent System

    Pros: My wife likes it

    Cons: Oil leak at 120 mi.

    Advice: Look underneath

    The car has 120 miles on the odometer and has sprung a trans leak. I could have gotten this with a GM car. Oh yeah, this is a 2006.

    2005 Honda Pilot - EX-L

    Pros: Handling/performance

    Cons: Armrest height

    Advice: Go for the EX model

    Excellent ride over all kinds of terrain. Impressive sound system and other interior comforts well placed and easy to use. In this day of overcomplicated options, the quality and variety of comforts with refreshing ease of use was a pleasant surprize.

    2005 Honda Pilot - EX-L With Navigation System

    Pros: space

    Cons: navi and No V8s available.

    Advice: To those who does not like it or can't afford to buy it perhaps start looking at Kia dealer because Honda's isnt for you.

    I considered Pilot is the best of its kind out there.
