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.

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.

Needed a vehicle with more cargo capacity than a sedan to replace a pickup truck that had no full size back seat. The Pilot's back seats fold down to yield a roomy cargo space when needed. Consumer Reports rated this year Pilot as a best buy. A friend who owns a Pilot has used it for over 300,000 miles (often hauling a good sized utility trailer) with no major problems. This model has many features that make it a very comfortable travel car.
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.
