I have always loved the Honda Family, one of my first Honda was a Honda Civic brand new 11 miles off the lot.. Loved that car. Loved the Honda Accord as well. Love the Pilots because they have the Roll cage protection so if you are in an accident, yoiu are protected all the way around. Side bags all the way around as well. This is a 8 passenger, love it to because the grand babies can be in the middle watching DVD with headphones and you can still listen to the radio. The people in the back seat has the choice of headphones and movies or radio from the front.
I thought I was going to love this Honda as I've had many Honda's over the years. This was my 1st Honda SUV. I drove it & was also a passenger on a 2 day, 15 hour trip. It was a rougher ride than I anticipated. It wasn't smooth over bumps in pavement or on a graded road. My largest compaint was that the seats are TOO firm and UNCOMFORTABLE on a long distance trip. It was SO UNCOMFORTABLE that I returned it to the dealer that bought it from. I lost thousands of dollars returning it, but it was THAT AWFUL on long distance driving --- which I do a lot of. I'll be replacing it with a different brand that is more comfortable on long distances, but still spacious.
Other than the too firm seats & not driving smoothly on rough paved roads- it has a lot of space. The Navigatiopn system is great, the Bluetooth is great., the back up camera is great. For driving around town, it's great.
Great quality vehicle with everything

It's a well put together machine. Great handling, great power, easy to control dash, quality workmanship, lots of cargo space and very safe.
