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.
Loving my Pilot.

I love my Pilot !!! Even though it's a 7 passenger SUV, it's rides just like a car. Very comfortable, very roomy even for those seating in the back seats. All of the dash board instruments are very convenient for the driver and passenger. It's an all around nice ride.
Solid, reliable SUV, great value

This is a great SUV. In almost 10 years (89 K miles) I have not had to make any repairs other than to replace wear and tear items (brake pads, tires, battery). This truck feels very sturdy, stable, has performed well on rough dirt roads and handles potholes well. Drives well with handling like a car. Engine has plenty of power. The interior seat material, steeling wheel, dash are of high quality and don't feel/look cheep like on some more recent Honda models. Lots of room with a solid third row seat that easily folds down. I like the center armrest and console too. The only catch is that the actual gas mileage isn't great, only around 15 mpg in the city, 22 or so on the freeway.
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.
