Reliable, comfortable, smoothest ride ever! I love the 3rd row seats when we have family and friends with us. 3rd row seat can be fold down for extra cargo room. Trunk area is huge and seats in 2nd row also fold down. My '07 pilot has running boards which are pretty convenient. It gives me the best traction during winter weather typical in Iowa. Snow, sleet, freezing rain -no problem. It takes me to work or back home safely. I also like the panoramic view of vehicle, I have fog lights good for driving out of town, 6-CD changer is nice and radio controls also in steering wheel. Changing lanes is great, due to its wide base, unlike other new SUV's. I highly recommend the Pilot.
Honda Pilot - Great Family Car

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.
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.
