2005 Honda pilot: the sturdy, steady family car.

I love that my Honda pilot has lasted for nearly 13 years without really any issues. I used to have a 2010 Honda CR-V that broke down and I eventually got rid of because of battery issues. My Honda pilot has had no issues with breaking down or overheating or anything. It is never had to be jump started either. It is a reliable car and easy to drive. It was the car I learned to drive in, and was good for learning because the break and accelerator weren't too sensitive that I would jolt the car around. I think the sensitivity of the brake, accelerator and wheel were just what I wanted. The car is also large enough that it could fit all my friends and our stuff without being too big and feeling like I was killing the environment by just driving it. Really the only downsides of this car are just due to it being an old car. The seats have been stained greatly by chlorine. It does not have an AUX cord, but the CD slot still works fine. Sometimes the clock runs fast, but I actually prefer it that way. I still feel very safe driving this car. It has been all over the country (nearly 200, 000 miles on it) and has never failed me. It is really a great family car, and I am sure it still has a few more good years with my family. My family and I will be sad to see "snowy" go, whenever that is.

The Honda pilot is a family-oriented vehicle.

Get rid of the pilot is the most comfortable, reliable vehicle I have ever driven. It has a wide wheel base and is very steady on the road, even if there is ice and snow. It goes right through them. It has an excellent heater, and an excellent air conditioner. It also has a large field of vision, which is important for someone my age. My vehicle is 13 years old, and has over 200, 000 miles on it, but it has rarely had anything wrong with it. I have had to put on two sets of tires, but that is expected. The only complaint I have about it, is that the gas mileage is not high. I get about 18 miles to the gallon, or somewhat more on the open road. But it is a wonderful vehicle to take on trips. It has plenty of room to pack in carry things in, and it is very comfortable to ride long distances in.

Easy access to the radio on the steering wheel. Anyone would love this car!

We purchased our 2005 Honda pilot five and a half years ago. There has never been any issue with it. I love the third row option. It is the perfect space for us for traveling sports, and vacations. In the middle row, middle seat, there is a drop down cubby that has two cup holders that my kids love to use. There is also at least one spot for a charger on each row of seats as well. The child lock has been amazing. It is such a comfortable vehicle. I can stop on a dime, and it has always been very reliable to me. I make sure to have the oil changed when needed, and I get an alignment every 6 months. I believe that has helped make my car as reliable as it is.
