Pros: "the handling, the luxurious interior, the response"

Cons: "The grandpa looks of it."

"i was leery at even looking at one because of the exterior. To me in my 30,s it looks like some thing that my grandpa would drive. once i test drove one my mind could not grasp it was the same car that i thought my gramps would drive,the interior was more luxurious than all six of my jaguars. the throttle response made me think i was a souped up import. Till this day i cant wrap my mind how amazing this "ugly" suv is. if you can live with the look of it it will simply amaze you every day. I love it (not the look of it tho). highly recommend it!"

"I purchased this car new and have just passed 250,000 miles. In the 13 years I've owned, the only unexpected repair was when a squirrel chewed through some wiring. Otherwise, this vehicle has been absolutely problem free. I can't recommend this car high enough. Honda has earned their reputation building cars like this one."

Pros: "Safe, Roomy, Seats fold flat, comfort"

Cons: "Gas ok in the city, factory stereo, dash board"

"My 2006 Honda Pilot was just totaled in an accident when an uninsured motorist ran a red light. I am certain my Honda saved my life. Airbags deployed and seat belt worked perfectly. The hood was jammed up into and shattered the windshield. The brakes were in perfect working order and I was almost able to stop before the collision. I was amazed it could still function well enough to manipulate out of traffic with the front frame compromised and grill completely bashed in, with fluids leaking everywhere. I think all of my future cars will be Honda Pilots. I am super picky about driver's seat comfort and head room - this SUV has all you could want for storage space and comfort. My job requires me to haul a lot of gear around and the flexible cargo space makes rearranging and tetris-ing to barely fit all of my equipment a thing of the past. The factory stereo system is a bit of a buzz kill, but everything that is important is done quite well in the Pilot. Visibility is great for the size - I don't notice blind spots the way I do in other KIA and Toyota models. I would highly recommend this SUV for anyone who needs space for family, pets, or gear. It's super flexible and SAFE!"

Pros: "Feels roomy, nice stereo, great controls, storage"

Cons: "air conditioner had problem with coil but fixable"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Loved my Honda Pilot but was ready for a new car after children were grown. I experienced one issue and that was the air conditioning. I forget what it even was. I think it was a coil. It was fixed and I haven't had a problem since. That was years ago. The ride is smooth and quiet. The stereo was great in this vehicle. My pilot had five headphones with a DVD player and comes with CD and cassette tape player. I guess it's "retro," now lol. I did not have a single engine problem or problem with something that affected the function of the car. It will probably go another 100,000 easily. Zero electrical issues ever. Mine also has VSL lock (which is the Pilot's form of four-wheel drive.) I also had heated front seats. I do recommend taking a Honda car to a Honda service department. Other service departments will sometimes use a wrong part or mess something up due to their lack of knowledge of that particular car."

"Purchased new in 06.this car solidified my trust in Honda. No issues mechanically. replaced timing belt at 95,000 miles and will replace again soon. have total confidence that I can get 300,000 miles out of this car and hope to buy another when i can afford to. i would recommend this type of vehicle to anyone looking for an SUV. great in snow and comfortable year round. I enjoy the commonsense features of Honda without all of the highpriced flashiness found on luxury cars- smart purchase"
