If you need the seating capacity of a bigger SUV, but not the usually bulky body and so-so handling that comes with it, check out the Pilot. Interior room is as outstanding as the power output...

My honest review of the 2008 Honda pilot ex-l.

2008 Honda Pilot

My Honda pilot is a great car if you have children or have to haul around a few people. It has had some issues in the past but for the most part is a decent car. As soon as we bought it (from a used car lot) the battery went bad and an o2 sensor. It has recently started making a new noise that I am not sure of, too. It is burgundy in color. A 2008 Honda pilot ex-l. The heated seats could be better as well. They get warm for about 5 minutes and then cool off again. I love the large gas tank on it and how roomy it is. I wish they seats were lower to the floor board, though, because I am a shorter girl and my feet do not touch the floor board. It makes it difficult to drive sometimes.

2008 Honda Pilot EXL 4 Wheel Drive

2008 Honda Pilot EX-L

This car has been a real joy. It is very reliable, easy to maintain, has 150,000 miles but is still in great shape. It does not require a lot of maintenance, and always starts. It is great for a family, although the third row is tight, probably best for younger kids. When the third row is stowed, there is plenty of room in the back for a long family road trip or car camping trip. I added a trailer hitch and Yakima rack, and I can literally add tons of bikes/ skis/ whatever to the vehicle for endless all seasons family fun. It also is excellent in the snow. I have the 4wd version and have not gotten stuck in any sort of snow, and I have been in a lot of snow.

AMAZING FAMILY VEHICLE, highly recommend to a mom that doesn't want a van.

2008 Honda Pilot EX-L

My vehicle has been wonderful throughout the 2 years of me owning it. We have no issues with it. As long as regularly maintained. The gas mileage isn't wonderful but that is okay. It is very spacious! The 8 seater vehicle, which both rows fold down completely, has been wonderful for my big family 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs and another baby on the way! We have traveled across the USA from Florida to California with no problems about being cozy. In the winter the seat warms are amazing to have. I highly recommend for anyone in search of a great family vehicle
