2009 Honda pilot ~ by far, the best vehicle I have ever owned!
2009 Honda Pilot
Purchased this vehicle new in the spring of 2009 and it is by far the best vehicle we have ever owned. Previous to this, we would trade in and purchase new vehicles every 3-4 years, but since buying our ‘09 pilot, it is been so great for our family we haven't wanted to trade it in. I am also not impressed with the newer body style or the overall look of the pilot since the changes that were made in 2016. We currently have 130,000 miles on our SUV, and it honestly drives like it did when we drove it off the lot 9 years ago. Other than regular upkeep and scheduled maintenance, we have not experienced any problems or issues with this vehicle. I will say that keeping up with regular oil changes, taking it to the dealership every 30,000 miles or so for maintenance checks and bringing it in for any recall updates is so important, as it is with any vehicle. Our Honda pilot has gotten my family with 2 small children to and from many family road trips and vacations. It is comfortable to ride in and so comfortable to drive! I have had countless friends and family comment on how nice it drives and the generous amount of head space and elbow room there is for the driver. Overall, I have been extremely satisfied with my Honda pilot and would recommend it to anyone looking for an SUV of this size. I recently had my local body shop buff out the entire thing, removing all of the scratches, dings and general road/weather/parking lot imperfections. The paint came out beautifully!! It truly speaks to the quality of the factory paint job. We are happily going on 9 years with our Honda pilot and we will continue to enjoy it for as long as possible.
