While not as long front-to-back from the 2007 Honda Pilot it is replacing it is like all Honda vehicles very reliable with sufficient cargo space and power to carry home repair construction materials. Also great for handling loads of camping gear and passengers to include the dogs on long cross country trips.
This vehicle has served my family for 13 years. We've made more trips to FL for spring break than I care to remember. I do relate to the lack of cargo space other reviewers speak of, with two daughters a luggage rack topper and/or a trailer hitch platform was required, but that was only to provide each kid with a entire row of seating to eliminate fighting. I actually installed the tow package myself, as I did with the cross bars for the roof rack. Saved lots of money that way. The trailer hitch came in handy when moving the kids to Purdue dorms and back again. Oh the stories this vehicle could tell.
230,000 miles an no major issues, just maintenance of timing belts every 90k miles.

Plenty of room. Seats are very comfortable for a long drive. Fuel economy could be better, I average 17-20 mpg. Versatility of the storage area with fold down seats you can customize the area. Visibility out of the vehicle is great too. Little features Honda builds in are a plus. If the wipers are on and you shift into R, the rear wiper activates to clear your view. When in reverse, the outside mirror will point down to assist curb clearance. You pick which side by selecting the mirror.
So you’re considering a Honda Accord as your next car. It’s a good choice—the Accord is very highly-regarded in any of its available variants. Plus, it combines good gas mileage with lively performance and plenty of interior space. For those who enjoy the experience of driving, Accords are known for their firm ride, good handling, and responsive steering.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
