Pros: 3rd Row
Cons: When using the shift lever you can easily hit the wiper blade; Stereo controls are a little funny.
Advice: Buy leather.We test drove the base model and purchased the EX non leather version. Had previous Honda with great cloth seats. We had them replaced on the Pilot at 7,000 miles! They were piling on the seams. Honda said it was normal wear! Wish we purchased the leather! Other than that we are very pleased with the vehicle. Rides great and very versatile. Very comfortable to get in and out of.
Pros: The Nav system, works very well, great for finding a gas station.
Cons: No right power seat, they could have sheilded the nav system under the seat, to run motors for the seat
Advice: Don't pay sticker price, for any car. If you can pay cash, better deal.I bought a new 2007 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD with Nav, color Dark Cherry Pearl. I'm 6'2', its a bit tight to geting into, but after that, drives like a dream. Very smooth, lots of power. Drawback, where the wind-shield wiper is located, no power left seat, third row seat should be an option. Also since the final drive is low, 1st gear should shift faster, instead it turns about 3500rpm before shihfting under very light throttle pressure. Gas milage will get better as engine breaks in, I have 2500mi on it and get about 19MPG all around driving. Bottom line, I think Honda makes a very good product, & very reliable.
