If you need a fuel-efficient vehicle with room for eight passengers, but refuse to get behind the wheel of a minivan, the 2013 Honda Pilot is the right choice. It doesn't take an engineering degre
Honda's decision to group popular options by model grade helps simplify the purchasing process, but this ordering structure makes it difficult to outfit the Pilot with your favorite individual opt
Despite its size, the 2013 Honda Pilot rides and drives very much like a large sedan.

"The Pilot is the best car I have owned being close to my 2000 Pathfinder. It drives great and is very easy to tow the kids around...beats driving a minivan! The towing is okay with a boat meaning I would not travel long distance with my 20 ft bowrider. It's fine but not great on hills and such. OUr family loves this vehicle and always look forward to drive it. It's a long term keeper! Great value and does not depreciate like other competitors out there."

This car gives you the real meaning of saving money. The best type to get is the EX-L with the RES because getting the touring would cost a little more but youre paying for some of the gadgets you dont need."
