Reliable, roomy and powerful

I have owned the car for 2 years and have had no mechanical/electrical issues. Taking it in for service has been easy and relatively inexpensive. It suits my needs for my canine/feline family and is easy to configure inside for their crates and other accessories we need. Driving it feels similar to a minivan. It is wide and large. However, when it is NOT in Eco mode, it has plenty of power and is quite zippy when you step on the gas. The only thing I was unhappy with is that Honda offers upgrades to their vehicles only as "packages" meaning you often have to accept accessories that you really don't want to get the things you need. Overall, I am content with this SUV as it meets all my size and configurability needs and, thus far, has been very reliable.

It is wonderfully comfortable.

My Honda pilot is very reliable. It has a third seat, seats eight (8) comfortably and has easy access to the third set of seats. The trunk capacity is large and, of course, even larger when the last row of seats go down. Putting the seats down in this model is very easy, just pull the lever or push the button. The trunk liftgate is hands free. Unfortunately, there is no receptacle outlet for charging your electronic devices in the back seat. The air conditioner works well, but is a little noisy and, of course, as with most of the Honda SUVs, road noise, in the cabin, is still a problem. However, it does have eight (8) cup holders with an extra small slots on each door of the front seat area.

Honda pilot: your new family vehicle.

This car is everything I dreamed of. It has great visibility in the “blind spot” that most crossovers/SUVs are really lacking. It has wonderful safety reviews. My husband can fit well without feeling cramped, our son has room for his car seat in the middle. 3rd row seating for when we need it (lays flat for more trunk room when we do not need the seating). Drives well with good gas mileage for the size of the car (22-24 mpg). Only issue so far is the rear air conditioner has broken but this is currently covered under our warranty. I really do recommend this car to anyone with a child or children. I do not even mind the monthly payment because it is so worth it.
