Perfect family vehicle with lots of hauling room and flexibility.

2013 Honda Pilot EX

The Honda pilot is a great family vehicle. I have 2 children so I rarely use the third row, which provides me with a lot of space for hauling. . When I do have more people with me, it is easy to raise up the third row to seat up to 8 people. There is plenty of legroom for everyone. I particularly like all of the cubbies for storing small items. . I do wish I had upgraded to a higher model as the lx is very basic. It is small items such as a compass, outside temperature, heated seats, etc that I wish I had. However, they are small items that would not prevent me from buying another pilot in the future. . While it is a bigger SUV, I do not feel like it is too big. I do not have trouble finding parking spots or going down narrow roads. . I like the 2013 model as it still has the boxier appearance. I get all of the features of a minivan without the appearance. The pilot handles well, especially on highways. In town gas mileage is not great, but what you expect for an SUV. Interstate gas mileage is excellent and I frequently get 22 to 23 miles per gallon while taking long road trips. We have taken many long trips in the pilot and always have plenty of room for our whole family, including our two large dogs. Overall, I am very happy with my pilot and plan on getting another in the future, although I feel like my current one will laat me many more years.

Comfortable and roomy vehicle! That acts as a vehicle to fit up to 8 passengers.

2013 Honda Pilot EX

Biggest problem with the Honda pilot 2013 is the paint job. I understand there are similar complaints of peeling paint job, this is peeling down to the metal. Mine happened in year 4 on the very top of the car above the windshield. Also, the leather interior is cracking, ripping and tearing in year 4. This is on the seats, front driver and door handle that is leather covered. The reliability of the vehicle has been great. I have had this vehicle serviced regularly and have not had any problems or extra expense except for maintenance, such as, new tires, brakes, spark plugs and recommended timing belt replacement. I am now at 207,000 miles and the vehicle has proven to be very reliable. The vehicle is very comfortable, roomy, with added comfort of seat warmers for the winter in the front seats. The very back seat folds up for an extra row of seats for extra guests in my car. The very back seat is a split seat and you can fold up 1 seat only or an entire row. The back 2 rows of seats fold down to carry large items. This is a very handy, comfortable car for a single person or a large family.

Dependable Trustworthy and gives me feeling of safe arrival to my destination.

2013 Honda Pilot LX

Comfort and dependable. Very costly when needs servicing. Pretty good gas mileage for an 8 person SUV. Wider and less compact than my previous 2004 pilot. Liked the way my 2004 drove in comparison and had better gas mileage. Love the standard features that now come on the 2013 pilot models because I had to pay for them on my previous pilot. Bought an extended warranty with my previous pilot but only used it twice in 9 years so did not bother buying one on my 2013 model. Wish I had cause it has been in shop 6 times since I bought it new in 2013 that I have had to pay for costly repairs and this is in addition to my 30/45/60/75/90/105/120 preventive maintenance service packages these are also expensive cause the 15/45/75/105 miles service packs run around 200.00 each while the 30/60/90/120 mile pkgs are more inclusive and run around 400.00 for each service. However the preventive maintenance service packages are worth it and keep it the dependable transportation I need. Other than a popped or flat tire I have never had either pilot break down unexpectedly.
