First Honda and first of many to come! SUV that feels like a zippy car
2009 Honda Pilot Touring
This is my first Honda and their great reputation for reliability has proven to be true! It's been a decade of snow, sun, highway and dirt roads and I have never had a car with such low maintenance costs. I keep up on oil changes and recommended services but I have never had anything other than normal wear and tear with my Honda. I looked at equivalent Toyota, Nissan and Jeep SUV options on the Honda felt the safest. I am not thrilled with the electronics (Bluetooth, radio, dashboard, etc). They are pretty basic and did not sync with any of my newer devices. I had to get additional equipment installed to connect certain devices. The navigation system is pretty outdated and the displays just aren't as visually appealing as other car manufacturers offered. But as far as the durability, safety and low maintenance of the vehicle is concerned, I am a huge Honda fan now! My father even got a newer model after driving mine. The car is very comfortable and I've had passengers comment that it doesn't 'feel like and SUV'. It drives and handles more like a car. I'm not a big car expert so I can't speak for the performance. My experience has been that the car has never failed to meet my needs and I have had little to no problems with it after a decade of heavy use. Highly recommend!!
