"We bought our 09 pilot in 09 and have really enjoyed it. It's ride is quiet and comfortable and I really like it for it's safety features. Having 2 small boys ages 2 and 5 I need to feel that they are safe when they are out with mommy. As a retired city police officer / instructor I witnessed a few fatalities in my career. You need a vehicle that can take a hit and feel that your vehicle can protect them as much as possible. Also I like how high it sits and the headlights are just amazing at night!"
