Great for a families of any age.

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I love the third row of seats, and how easy it is to operate.. I have 249000 miles on it with the original motor and transmission. I purchases it used and have done some work to it, including replacing the front end, and two new ac systems. That is the only mechanical issue it has. The ac system has some flaws. The seats are all very comfortable for a range of human sizes and shapes. IE all of my family rides comfortably. The leather does require maintenance, especially because it's black. I get about 25 miles to the gallon, which isn't wonderful, but it's better than some.

it can fit 8 people and also has heated seats

2004 Honda Pilot LX

this car is awesome. It is very reliable and can handle a lot of miles. As long as regular maintenance is performed the car does well. I drive a lot and have never had any problems with this car. There are heated seats which is awesome and lots of room. The car also gets pretty good gas mileage for its size (mine gets around 35 miles per gallon). the only downside for this car is almost everything you put into the car (I.e transmission fluid and oil) has to be Honda brand which is pricey.

My Honda 04 Honda Pilot and it's reliability

2004 Honda Pilot LX

It's served me well for the past three years and it's never broke down. Now it does like to guzzle gas frequently but it's not that bad really. It gets me where I need to be, lot of space and decent gas mileage. I've had to replace the tires only once and that was because the tires were rather old and one had a nail that was in the road and was going flat. However the tires were not so overpriced and the Pilot has done me no wrong so far since I bought it.

best vehicle Can use the back as a third row seat or an enclosed trunk.

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I love my Honda Pilot! It is dependable and fun to drive. My pilot is older (2004) but is still going strong. With close to 200,000 miles I expect to keep driving her for many more miles! The third row seat is one of my favorite things about the Pilot. It is plenty of room for 2 adults or I just lay the seats down for a huge trunk. I can fold down both rows of seats and it is basically like an enclosed truck. The pilot is a great vehicle!

Reliable but inefficient SUV

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I like that it is 4 wheel drive and that the engine performs pretty well on hilly terrain. I also like that it is spacious and has plenty of storage and space in the cabin for passengers. I do not like that it gets quite poor gas mileage and that the radio has problems sometimes. Overall a reliable car that has taken me a lot of miles. I think it has good performance it just is not that efficient.

3rd row seating and can feet up to 8 adults or children comfortably

2004 Honda Pilot LX

No problems at all has great gas mileage, has lots of room for children if guest have a 3rd row of seating that you can fold out in the back. Seating capacity is up to 8 comfortably. Nice smooth ride in the vehicle.all back seats fold down and lots of room to fit lots of items.I absolutely love my Honda pilot and would recommend it to anyone especially anyone with children.

I love my Honda pilot, even though I d have to put money into it.

2004 Honda Pilot LX

Love this truck. It is nice looking and has a lot of passenger and cargo space. However the transmission died right after I bought it, and the engine died last year, neither from anything I did. It was worth putting the money in to fix, and now I hardly have any problems. It has 187000 miles, and I plan to go to at least 25000, if not more. My favorite car I have had.

Love my Honda Pilot and my Bluetooth music

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I like that it's spacious and I have a lot of trunk space. The tan color is nice because I don't like bold colors. I love that you can change the volume from the wheel but I use Bluetooth for my music since my radio no longer works and wish I could change the song using the wheel. The space in between the two front seats is nice but could be slightly bigger.

- Grace N

This car is very reliable, even with the high mileage .

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I have replaced the engine in the past 5 years, I have also replaced the catalytic converter. The car was shifting hard when changing gears. The motor on the passenger door has went out for the door lock. There is over 180,000 miles on the vehicle and is overall a very reliable, and comfortable vehicle.

- Sarah M

It's an amazing spacious car

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I haven't had a problem with my Honda Pilot. It truly is amazing, I would definitely recommend it. It's a reliable spacious car, mine came with a black interior, so it looks more luxurious. This Honda Pilot could also fit an entire family, with possibly a pet and all will fit in comfortably

- Jos C

Used Honda Pilot. A great buy.

2004 Honda Pilot LX

Mileage is poor. Great car. Engine and transmission are strong. No leaks. Runs and drives great. The car has over 200,000 miles. I've had it for over 10 years. I've replaced both headlight lenses, starter twice, and driver's seat rails. It has been a good car. 4wd is helpful in winter.

- Michael S

Dependable - the Honda pilot will last you years without problems.

2004 Honda Pilot LX

My Honda pilot is a very dependable car. In all the time we have owned, we have taken several road trips. It has great mileage on the highway and is a very comfortable drive. Being a Honda, it has had no mechanical problems and will probably drive for another 100 thousand miles.

Pros and Cons of Honda Pilot 04

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I love the way it runs, haven't had a check engine light in forever.. notify me when I need oil. Kids have a DVD player. I feel the only bad thing is the a.c has the most issues. But once it is fixed it lasts a good 6 months till it acts up again.. overall a good family SUV.

- Barbara T

Honda pilot review Good car good gas mileage

2004 Honda Pilot LX

I like my Honda pilot. It has heated seats and a DVD player drives smooth and is good on gas for being a bigger SUV. I haven't had to many issues with it mechanically which is nice also. I dislike that it doesn't have a aux port so I cannot listen to my music on my phone

- Shayla M

- Sara R

Very reliable and safe...

2004 Honda Pilot LX

Very reliable. Music is the only thing that can be improved in a long while I have to the top off the time of my time I wanna is time for you and you to come home was the day I was a little nervous about the music and the time of the year it would use the same time.

- Bennett W

Honda Pilot: Room for everyone!

2004 Honda Pilot LX

My Honda Pilot is great because it is roomy and up to fits 7 passengers. This makes taking my kids and their friends places easy and comfortable. It gets great gas mileage, and has not had any major problems. The back seats fold down for extra storage
