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.
What you get for a low-end Honda
Pros: Flexibility of seats/storage
Cons: Drivetrain: engine/clutch/transmissionSolid as a rock, ultra-flexible, seems reliable so far. Also uncomfortable on bad roads; the manual shift badly needs a sixth gear; the clutch is a mystery; low-power engine; noisy at highway speed.
Pros: bun warmers
Cons: handlingPoor handling/drivability
Hard to beat a Honda
Pros: Looks and preformance. Need to put a V6 for better power.
Cons: Some road & Cabin noise. All of my Honda's have had the same complaintAnother Honda vehicle that is great all the way around.
This car is a blast plus quality
Pros: The entire automobile.
Cons: Right side vision rear from driver seat.This car with the 4WD preforms great in the local mountains.
Perfect for the cause
Cons: bumpy rideI bought this car for economy and conservation. I get around 28-30 mpg in the city and 38 -43 on the highway(w/o AC). I love the practicality of the interior and the different configurations available. It accommodates 4 adults comfortably and with no problems. The paddle shifters are fun but I seldom use them. The car has a bumpy ride due to its short wheelbase. The quality is great. I've got 10K miles on the car and I am very happy.
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.
