2012 Honda Pilot is a fantastic vehicle.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

The Honda Pilot has been my favorite vehicle of all the vehicles I have owned. It drives really well, is smooth and comfortable. We have taken it on several road trips, it has been very reliable. I do like that we have a navigation system on this vehicle, however, one thing I don't like about the navigation system, is that it is outdated. It is very pricey to purchase the update software from Honda. Our family of 6 fits in the Pilot very comfortably. We have a sun/moonroof on this vehicle, I really like this feature since we can get the natural light in the vehicle from above, while traveling. The rear seating is easy to put down, it does not take very much effort to make room in the back when we have larger items we need to carry or just want to put the seats down for extra room. Overall I really enjoy my Honda Pilot and will probably not get another vehicle for myself for awhile.

The Honda pilot is a perfect family car that runs great and looks great.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

Our Honda pilot is a great, reliable family car. We have the option to have a ton of trunk space or a third row of seating if needed. This means it is a car we will not outgrow. It also runs smoothly and has given us little to no problem at all in the three and a half years that we have owned it. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a family car that is both spacious, smooth, and that is way cooler looking than a minivan. We love it!

Pros and cons of the 2012 Honda Pilot

2012 Honda Pilot LX

The Pilot is great for long drives ' the leather seats are comfortable, the ride is smooth, and there's plenty of space for our family and our gear when we travel. In the city it's just okay ' it's a big vehicle, which makes parking a challenge in downtown neighborhoods, and the city mileage is fair at best. Still, it's a safe, reliable vehicle and I'm glad we purchased it.

It has 8 seats but is very compact, so it does not feel huge.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

I like the Honda pilot because it is incredibly comfortable. The seats adjust well for different sized people and the backup camera is really helpful, especially because I live in a place with a lot of blind corners. The tires do not need replacing very often and the mileage is great. I would recommend this.

2012 Honda pilot- excellent family vehicle.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

I love my pilot. It has so much room for my kids and all of their stuff. We have had typical maintenance issues but no major problems. The only problem I have encountered is that when the third row is up, there is not enough room in the trunk. However, everything else about the vehicle is great!

Pilot: smooth, great mpg, comfortable.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

If you are a mom, even with only one kid, this car is perfect for you. It drives smooth and is extremely comfortable. The third row of seats has more room for those who sit back there than you would think. The mpg is great, especially for an SUV. Great car, I highly recommend it.

Pilot by Honda. Different.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

Very dependable. Excellent safety features. Resale value should be very high. Salesman at local dealership for very helpful. No major problems. Or rather no problems at all. Feel secure knowing this is under warranty. Would buy a another one in the future if it has all features.

- Kris H

comfortable and luxurious size

2012 Honda Pilot LX

it very comfortable. I love the leather seats and the ability to control rear seats temperature. All the seats also fold down which gives me plenty of room for any work related uses. downside is the amount of gas it consumes. Overall give it a 5 thought because its a Honda!

Gray Honda pilot with leather interior and sunroof.

2012 Honda Pilot LX

I love my Honda pilot! I love the way it drives. Love the space it provides for my family of 6, yet it's not such a large SUV that it is hard to drive or handle. It is not bad on gas. I have had it a little over a year, have had no trouble out of it at all.
