2007 Honda Pilot Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Honda Pilot
It is a great all around vehicle that offers amazing comfort, power, and style.
My pilot drives amazing. It is a smooth ride and very comfortable. I love how spacious the vehicle is. We have third row seating so we can bring friends along with us or lay down the seats for ample loading space. Our vehicle is older so it has over 200, 000 miles on it. With the miles comes some issues. I am currently facing a head gasket issue. Surprisingly the vehicle still drives smooth (though I do not take it long distance anymore). We used a head gasket sealer and it seemed to fix the problems we were having (coolant leaking, engine overheating). I have other vehicles, but my pilot still offers the most comfortable ride. It has 4 wheel drive, which I use frequently in the winter. The pilot has a great heat/ac system that reaches the entire vehicle. The sound system is awesome, even being 11 years old. One of the most random features the car has that I love is the amount of cup holders throughout. There are cup holders in all of the doors except the driver's and in the third row section on both sides. There's also outlets to plug in chargers throughout the vehicle. You can tell that vehicle was made for comfort and convenience. The only new car I desire is a newer model of the pilot. I love this SUV!
Perfect Family SUV for All Occasions
This has been a very reliable car. It had 70,000 miles when I bought it. It now has 260,000 miles. I've had to keep up routine maintenance and had to replace a few sensors. Other than that, I have had no problems with this car. This car has a built in Navigator and back up camera on the navigator screen. I live both these features. I especially love being able to see what is behind me on the screen inside my car while I am backing up. I also being able to see a map of where I am while I am driving. This car has a 3rd row and that was great when I was carpooling mom. My kids are out of the house now. This car seats 7 very comfortably. The rear air is also very nice for those passengers in the 2nd and 3rd rows. Leather seats make for easy clean up. And the sunroof is great for fall and spring days!
Good overall performance and capability, falls short on small details.
The wheel is heavy and more difficult to turn than most other cars I have driven. The buttons on the console have very little shape/texture variation, so it is very hard to be able to push the correct button without taking your eyes off the road. This car can hold a surprisingly large amount of people or luggage which is very nice especially for a car that is not really huge. I wish it had more/better air vents for the back seats. It takes a long time for the back of the car to be able to warm up or cool down.
I love my 2007 Honda pilot.
I bought my car used 3 yrs. ago and it only had 1 previous owner. Original owner only had wear and tear maintenance done. I am currently at the stage where more repairs are needed i.e.: alternator, belts and fans. The performance and reliability is great. The driver and front passenger seats are heated. It has satellite radio, 6 disc CD player. Does not have AUX connection, you need an adapter. Has side airbags all around. The heat and a/c does not reach 3rd row seats to well. Great gas mileage.
Love the pilot, but it has some flaws.
Vehicle does well with preserving gas. I can drive long distances without needing to refuel. I feel safe when I drive my vehicle. It is very spacious. Can seat up to 7 passengers. Can put both middle and back seats down to store big objects that need to be moved (for example, moving into a new home). Middle seats slightly recline, which is a great feature. I can use cruise control through the steering wheel. Would be nice if it had an AUX plug. Would be nice if it had a sunroof.
For the size of the Honda it actually does very well on gas mileage.
My vehicle fits 8 comfortably. We have two teenage boys, one twelve year old girl, an a nine year old boy. They usually have friends and we have two shih tzus that are usually with us. It heats and cools very well in the back with the dual control. It has about 130,000 miles on it and is still going strong with no issues. I'm 5'3 and my husband is 6'0 and we both drive it with great visibility. We plan on buying a newer one in the next two years.
Honda pilot has leg room for giants.
The Honda pilot has been dependable. We bought it used and have only had to make normal wear and tear repairs. It rides well and has lots of legroom. My 6'4" son can rise in both the front and back seats with plenty of room. The 3rd row pop up seat is only big enough for smaller children. It has rear controls for the heat/air conditioner. My children love his feature. They also like the drop down center console that has cup holders for the back seat.
Honda Pilot 2007 great family car!
Very roomie, rides like a large SUV, but still small enough to get in small parking spaces. I like that it's high off the ground and that I can see over the hood. It has adjustable seats which helps because I'm short. The only thing I don't like about my particular car is the back windows tinted too dark. There's lots of storage all throughout the car for different things and the third row adjustable seating comes in very handy.
Honda pilot perfect for carrying a team.
My children are/were athletes, and this car carries a team. Its safe, gets decent mileage on road trips, and has room for family trips, too. With an added carrier I have moved kids to college, played tennis/soccer/basketball tourneys all over the southeast, loaded up five teenagers and supplies for a trip to the mountains, and slept in a parking lot for a concert. When I downsize, it will be to a CR-V.
SUVs require more maintenance because of their weight.
Honda pilots are really great for people with active families. My family has a newer car but I love driving my Honda pilot more than newer cars because it was made so well. I have only had to get a filter replaced on the car and that is it. Regular maintenance is all it needs and I have never experienced any serious problems with it. Once the car gets older, i'll be purchasing another Honda pilot.
