2006 Honda pilot-still at the pinnacle of Honda's premier SUV performers.
My 2006 Honda pilot is the best performing and most enjoyable car I have ever owned. After 156, 336 miles driven, it still performs like new. Approximately half of the years I have owned the car it has been garaged when inoperative and the other half it has been uncovered while inoperative. The car has been well maintained and very rarely needs service or parts beyond occasional changes to windshield wipers, a new battery, oil changes and tires. The car has had all dealer recommended maintenance and service for miles driven. It runs quiet and smooth, the seats are leather and look great with no tears, splits or really noticeable wear. The back floor mats and front passenger mat still look new, however the driver's mat shows wear. Overall the exterior paint still looks great but there is some clear coat around the front bumper panel that has peeled due to long time plant irrigation hitting it during the nights while outside. The cost to manually repair that section/panel would probably be close to the cost of a new painted panel. There are a few small dings here and there that are barely noticeable. What I love most about my Honda is its reliability. I never have to worry when I start it or take it on a very long trip, will I get to my destination? I know it will. I also love its roomy interior for all sizes of passengers and loads upon loads of heavy cargo. Its truck chassis means smooth sailing over bumpy roads. It has a great music system, 6-cd changer and a built in large GPS. I plan to drive my Honda at least another hundred thousand miles and then buy another one.
