- Seats 8 and is very roomy
- interior is very cheap, a lot of road noise and rattling, paint scratches very easily
Purchased As New
The only thing that I ever liked about this car was that it seated 8 people which is nice if you are driving kids around. There is a lot of road noise on the freeway and the interior plastic is very cheap. My car has been garaged since purchase and the leather is actually tearing on the drivers seat. At 60,000 the timing belt and two associated parts went bad. At 75,000 the power steering pump, transmission switch an shocks went bad. I purchased this car new and am ready to get rid of it....read morehide

- Haven't found any yet
Have had 2007 2WD EXL for three months. Got 23-25 mpg on trip to Florida. Driving and riding in it are a real pleasure. Very happy with it. Best vehicle for value I've ever owned. Wife loves it. Kids think their Dad is now cool.

- Good Fuel economy for large SUV, Comfortable, Upscale Interior, Honda Luxury Vehicle
- Water LeaK!!!!!
Bought this car 6 months ago and have already put 10,000 miles on it. Coming from a Ford Escape that I had 0 problems with after 4 yrs. I researched many cars including the Toyota Highlander and 4runner, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevy Trailblazer and found the Pilot the best value with Leather and Sunroof and best MPG by far. After a few months I found that the car was leaking water in the front and passenger sides under the carpet. Honda has had three attempts to fix it and it has been out of service 15 days...LEMON. I have begun the lemon law process and will only settle for a replacement vehicle or full refund. I do believe the Pilot is a great car at a great value and I just happened to get a bad apple....read morehide

- Spacious, Comfortable, and fun to drive. Fuel economy ok for size.
- Road noise. Another inch or two of front and rear leg room would be better.
Coming out of a BMW M3, I thought this would be hard to get used to. To the contrary, this is fun to drive. It's spacious and comfortable - with leather, almost luxurious but not quite there. The dash is simple, but functional. I can see why Car and Drive rates it the best large SUV for the last 5 years in a row. It drives much more like a car than a truck. The Toyota 4Runner, by contract, is bumpy like a truck. The Pilot is smooth and corners ok. Was going to buy a used BMW X5(3yrs old), but got a new Pilot for the same cost - the Pilot is much larger, and gets better gas mileage. Ok, it may not look quite as good as a X5 to many, but it still looks great and should be more reliable. My complaint is road noise - not that bad, but definitely noticeable on the highway....read morehide

- Very roomy compared to most midsize SUV's especially MDX.Great ride.
- Had to have ignition box replaced.will explain.Running boards do not come standard.
THis is by far the best SUV I have driven ever. Love the look and feel. I get tons of compliments on it. Gas mileage not bad, very roomy for traveling, & really came in handy during Katrina evacuation. We pulled a 40 ft boat and packed it down with our most important posessions. We travled from New Orleans to Atlanta and back, as I said gas mileage not bad.
The ignition box was not registering my key, so it took 4 months for them to figure out why my truck would not start from time to time. So keep your eye out for this problem. I have heard of this before in other vehicles.
If I had a choice in to buy another SUV I would choose the Pilot again, however running boards SHOULD come standard....read morehide

- # of seats, stereo system, lights & lighting
- 2nd & 3rd row leg room, alot of vibrarion from the steering wheel, head-rest for DVD monitor
I got mine for 31K out the door after some back and forth negotiation.
The car's great, I went from a mazda 3 - hatchback.
But I had a GMC Envoy before that. The head rest, becuase of the big hole you're restricted on the size of monitor that you can put in your head-rest. Also there's alot of vibrarion from my steering wheel, i thought it was the tilt but after adjusting the tilt, the vibration is still there.
But there's plenty of room for when we load up the car, but the kids have to sit in the 3rd row so that the adults can have more leg room in the 2nd row.
We havn't taken it on a road trip yet, but that's when we'll see how the car holds up....read morehide

- Great lease deals, passenger capacity, comfort.
- Nothing so far.
I've had my pilot for 2 weeks, and it's great so far. Still getting used to parking a large vehicle (I traded for my volvo wagon). EX-L package is worth the extra dollars- I only wish I'd added the Nav system, too.

- Smooth ride, Build quality, refinement
- Nothing really
This is the smoothest riding SUV or truck I have ever experienced. Typical outstanding Honda build quality makes for a very impressive drive. Drives much more like a car than an SUV. Got the leather package and moonroof in Sage brush pearl. The 06 model is very attractive and I think it is more stylish than in previous years. Very comfortable with nice room inside. My wife says its the best vehicle she has ever driven - the kids love it too. This vehicle is definitely "best in breed"....read morehide
