It is sick to fall in love with a car. This is my fourth Honda. I had a Civic and two Odysseys before this. I love this car more than any car I have had. It is such good shape, like a new car. I think it was a least. It was well taken care of. I took it to my Honda dealer, and they said it was perfect.
My Honda Pilot is a WONDERFUL car! I am short - 4'11"- and have had trouble over the last 8 years finding a car that I could see past the hood. The driver's seat raises high enough that this is no longer an issue, plus the squared off front of the car makes it easier to judge how close I am to the object or vehicle in front of me when I am parking. Also my Pilot is very easy to drive and park with the rear back-up monitor. And the mileage is excellent - 22.5 on mixed city/highway driving and 29 mpg on a recent trip. It is also very comfortable, even in the back seat, and has very little road noise. The air conditioner has been quick to cool my Pilot even on 90 degree days in South Texas. I LOVE MY PILOT!!
2005 Honda PilotJanice Jackson - WASHINGTON, DC09/30/2016
I feel confident that I can rely on this car to start each time and get me where I am going with no trouble. It drives well, sits comfortably enough for my long legs, has ample storage space, and is built with a chassis that is high enough off the ground that I do not have to worry about major damage from all of the potholes and high speed bumps on streets in DC. My Honda has been very reliable over the years needing only normal maintenance.
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.
