This car has everything I need! I am a church youth leader. I need to be able to carry lots of kids/cargo. This car has plenty of room, cup holders, and power sources to keep every one happy. It's also a great sized car to teach my teenaged son how to drive in!
Love my older Pilot
2007 Honda PilotSara Smith - Des Moines, IA03/22/2017
Reliable, comfortable, smoothest ride ever! I love the 3rd row seats when we have family and friends with us. 3rd row seat can be fold down for extra cargo room. Trunk area is huge and seats in 2nd row also fold down. My '07 pilot has running boards which are pretty convenient. It gives me the best traction during winter weather typical in Iowa. Snow, sleet, freezing rain -no problem. It takes me to work or back home safely. I also like the panoramic view of vehicle, I have fog lights good for driving out of town, 6-CD changer is nice and radio controls also in steering wheel. Changing lanes is great, due to its wide base, unlike other new SUV's. I highly recommend the Pilot.
2013 Honda PilotSindy Zambrano - San Bernadino, CA01/22/2017
I went from an Altima to my Pilot and I am never looking back.
I honestly thought it was going to be hard to drive, but I was so wrong. This car is so easy to drive and maneuver. Along with the sensors all around its even better. The camera is also a big help, you can see all around. The car does not feel weak or slow, this suv has some serious power and control.
I really can't say anything bad about it. I can have my whole family in it and some of our friends too, no more taking another car for us. The great thing about that is everyone fits comfortable and no one is sitting on top of each other. Great design Honda!!
Honda Pilot Overview
The Honda Pilot is a crossover SUV that can seat up to eight passengers. As is typically the case with Honda vehicles, the Pilot provides a high-quality ride that is equal parts stable and comfortable.
Honda Pilot History
Front-wheel drive was available in 2006 when the Pilot received a mild refresh before it was redesigned in 2009. In the second generation, the Honda Pilot appealed to families that wanted to have a minivan that did not look like a minivan. Completely revamped for 2016, the latest Pilot sheds its original exterior styling for a sleeker, more car-like look not seen often with mid-size SUVs.
How It Drives
The Honda Pilot offers decent acceleration, with a smooth ride and respectable handling. It's also a fuel-efficient vehicle great for drivers who need to take their families to a wide variety of places. All Honda Pilots are equipped with three rows of seating, ensuring plenty of interior space for seven or eight passengers. The Pilot is great for big families.
Used Honda Pilot Value
The Honda Pilot's early generation models came equipped with many standard features currently available on new Pilots. Additionally, most changes are either cosmetic or minor, so used car buyers should look at what features they put a premium on and research which model year the feature was rolled out onto all Honda Pilots. Those seeking better performance may want to look at 2005 models which have a higher horsepower than Honda Pilots prior to it.
Honda Pilot Standard Features
The most recent Honda Pilot has been upgraded to include a 3.5L V6 engine backed up by a 6-speed automatic on base models and a 9-speed automatic on upper trims. All-wheel drive is optional.
