- Comfortable. Third row seating. Good interior finish.
- Somewhat rough ride. Fuel economy. Road noise.
I purchased my Pilot Ex-L 4WD in August 2007, and have driven more than 3,500 miles. (I've owned Hondas before, and my teenage boys are presently driving a Civic and an Acura RSX). The sticker on the window when I purchased the Pilot said 17 MPG City. However, after three tanks of gas, it was obvious that the actual gas mileage around town was 13-14. So, I installed a K&N air filter, switched to Mobile 1 Fully Synthetic Extended Performance motor oil (15,000 miles between oil changes), and a Mobile 1 oil filter. I'm now getting just over 15 MPG City and more than 20 MPG on the highway. This is still a far cry from what I expected, so I went to my Honda store and looked at the stickers on the 2008 Pilots. Wouldn't you know, the MPG's have been lowered to 15/20. I was quite upset, until a friend said that his 2006 Ford Ranger had a sticker with the MPG's being 18/22, and now the same truck for 2008 is stickered at 13 MPG City. It's obvious that all the auto manufacturers have inflated the gas mileage claims! Alas, my son's 2006 Honda Civic EX gets around 35 MPG overall (combination of city and highway driving).
