Used 2008 Honda Pilot VP in Dulles, VA
Reviews for 2008 Honda Pilot
Could have been a better buying experience.
IT gets the job done.
Honda does not stand behind its product
Consumer Alert: I have had nothing but problems with my 2008 Honda Pilot! It has been in the shop 9 times and counting. I am so glad that I got the extended warranty on this car otherwise I would be out thousands of dollars in repairs. I have been trying to deal with Honda Corporate and have been getting the run around. They do not want to discuss that this car is probably a lemon. Based on the other reviews on this site, now I am more convinced than ever that I have a lemon. My check engine light has come on when I was traveling in two different states and had to find dealerships to check the car out. My current problem has been worked on for three different occasions and I have to take it back again because the power steering fluid is still leaking. Corporate offered me a free service which amounts to basically an oil change for all of my inconvenience because everything else is basically covered on the extended warranty. I have had to take off time from work and vacation to sit in the dealership on nine different occasions, lost pay, was scared to drive the car because of all of the mechanical repairs, and had the car shut down completely while I was driving it. Corporate went as far to tell me that they do not have to offer me anything for my inconvenience and I should be happy that they offered the free service. Really Honda!! I have been a loyal Honda driver since 1991 and thats how you treat loyal customers... This will be the last Honda that I purchase and they have left me no choice but to get an attorney involved to help get customer satisfaction!
Excellent vehicle for 8 passengers
I needed a vehicle to haul a family of eight, and the value package (VP) Honda Pilot is it, short of a large van. Clean and comfortable with adequate power to haul 8, one dog, and a cargo carrier on the roof. This VP doesn't have bells and whistles- no Navigation system, heated or power seats, rear camera, moonroof, etc. But does have most currently standard amenities- power doorlocks, windows, and mirrors. Rear seat folds completely flat for cargo when not hauling 6 kids around. Gets ~19-20 mpg. The four stars for 'value for the money' is that it probably could've been gotten for less $, but all in all I am delighted with the vehicle. Plenty of cup holders and such for everything that 8 passengers tend to bring on a long road trip. Seats are very comfortable.
