Love the extra room in the back

2003 Honda Pilot EX

Very reliable, comfortable, safe, drives very well even though it's older. The pilot fits 8 people very comfortably and the back of the car can be converted to just extra storage if you put the seats down. I love Honda cars and have owned 2 so far. I like Honda better than Toyota. I have owned both. Honda seems a little better made. We bought our car used and it had a warranty through the dealer. This was great because it paid for a lot of repairs. Older cars start to break so I am glad we got the extra warranty. We had problems with the alternator, breaks, power windows, and suspension. Motor runs great!

SUV with charm and comfort for a growing family! Low maintenance, high quality.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

My 2003 Honda Pilot, is so rewarding the level of comfort and space for our growing family has been satisfying. We keep up with maintenance the car runs smooth. The only hiccups we have had is the sensor for the power locks and the key fob, it happen after our battery died. Not a big problem after we fixed the key fob. We enjoy our camping trips, the amount of space to haul all our necessities. Our ages are from 41- 18 mos old we all have plenty of space once we pack all our belongings.

Silver 2003 Honda pilot with v6 engine.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

Did have trouble with the timing belt getting out of rhythm which resulted in broken pistons and needing an entirely new engine. Handles extremely well in snow and poor road conditions. Gas mileage is about average for a 2003. Rusting on both rear corner panels likely from salt getting kicked up from tires. All inside amenities work well and have not had to replace anything.

- Haley B

Very reliable car. I would tell a friend to strongly consider Honda.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

The car is very reliable and a nice drive. Negatives include the car is a loud drive and poor gas mileage. Since it is an older model car I needed to upgrade the radio to have Bluetooth, etc. This car however is an excellent second car which can fit 5 adults easily along with room in the back for cargo. I use it to tow a small camper and waverunner.

A reliable and comfortable vehicle for a mid-sized family.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

The Honda Pilot is a sturdy and comfortable vehicle, and has lasted many years. It was great storage, a sunroof, excellent mileage. However it has had a lot of problems over the years with breaks, transmission and battery. A lot of money has been put into fixing general issues - potentially more than it was worth.

- Anna L

Just really great all around vehicle for four season rig!!

2003 Honda Pilot EX

Nice comfortable ride, reasonable gas mileage, reliable and dependable tows great and great for camping as well with roof racks for your gear and recreation kayaks, canoe,ski's ect... As well as has 3rd row seating as well for 8 people all features but not to many to be hard to read, plus low maintenance.

- Stanley M

Great roomy family vehicle

2003 Honda Pilot EX

I've owned my Pilot for 6 years now. I have over 250,000 miles. I've never had any type of major problem. Its extremely roomy, comfortable and drives smooth. Seats in back lay down and you have about if not more room than a truck bed. When I get a new vehicle, it will be another Pilot just newer.

- Lacey M

A good all around vehicle with surprising space and room for a mid-size SUV.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

Overall, the reliability is great. It is starting to wear down from usage, but it still performs well. It's very comfortable for someone my size(6'4'/315 lb). Legroom is good, although larger adults sitting directly behind me may suffer. The only drawback is that I feel it needs a little more power.

One Tough Reliable Vehicle

2003 Honda Pilot EX

The Honda Pilot is a very reliable vehicle. I have had no major issues with is until this year. A car being 16 years old and 242,000 miles needed a new alternator. Other than that, I have only paid for regular maintenance. It has always handled all weather conditions well (in WI and VT).

- Brenda L

Lance, my Honda pilot is my trusty steed. It always gets me where I want to go.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

I have had problems with the ignition and locking system in my car and the car was recalled for airbags. Overall I love my car it is dependable and comfortable, and surprisingly good on gas for an SUV. I have a large dog so it is spacious enough for my dog and groceries and passengers.

- Debbie A

Reliable, spacious, and a great family car

2003 Honda Pilot EX

I have over 300k miles on my car, and it runs great. Always reliable, super comfortable, and the third row is great for when I have to cart around extra kiddos! I never run out of room, and it's great on long journeys. My daughter also loves the car and it's the perfect family vehicle

- Stephanie D

Overall it's a great vehicle for a family over 5 due to its 3 row seating.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

My Honda Pilot has very low gas mileage! It drives pretty well but you will be out of a lot of money for a short trip. It has 3 row seats which is a plus! It also has DVD player and cloth seats. On the highway it will be a smooth drive since it's a 4 wheel drive.

- Tamara W

I would definitely buy another Honda again.

2003 Honda Pilot EX

I have had no major problems with this vehicle; it has been very reliable throughout the years that I have owned it, which has been since late 2003. It is a comfortable vehicle, it has seating for 8 passengers, and I now have over 253,000 miles on it.
