Pros: Seat comfort on long trips.
Cons: Lack of memory seats.When gas hit $3 it was time to send my Lincoln Navigator packing. After months of research and test drives I selected the 2010 Honda Pilot. At 6'3', 240 lbs space was very important to me. The Pilot is more comfortable for long distance travel than was the Navigator and the 8 mpg gain was great. There is more cargo room behind the second seat than with the Navigator.
I wish I had not waste my money over price
Pros: The tires
Cons: back seat space.My pilot, I had 2900 mile and it stops performance I had to put it in for service for a week.
good set of wheels
Cons: road noise, stuff that disappears between seat and center consoletaken several long trips. excellent ride and comfort. noisy tires, just got rid of them, did have 75K on the tires. plenty of power. great car
Pros: Front seat warmers for cold weather
Cons: Honda's optional roof rack cross bars create wind noise on the road
Advice: Excellent value in the low $30Excellent value over all compared to all other SUV's that I considered, with seating for eight. The pop up rear window give you a lot of flexability to carry long objects without having to tie them down on the roof rack. After over one year of ownership, the best gas milelage that I have seen was on the road at 28 MPG when the engine automatically moves to the ECO mode and runs on three cylinders. I am averaging 18.4 miles overall. The front wheel drive is excellent in the snow. Honda's bluetooth works poorly with bad reception. This is my second Honda Pilot. I still own my first with 118,000 miles that has requred not major repairs and still runs great. This SUV really keeps its value.
