About Honda Pilot

Honda’s venerable Pilot SUV for 2017 provides 3-row convenience in a vehicle noted for its reliability and strong resale. This 3rd-generation Pilot is slightly smaller than the last, but the design is sleeker and more upscale. The Pilot sacrifices some interior room to the design, making it smaller inside than the aging Chevrolet Traverse, but still slightly larger than the current Ford Explorer. The 2017 Pilot is also up to speed on the latest safety features, offering driver-assist systems like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and crash-detection and mitigation. On the road, the Pilot is every bit the equal of the Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder, although it can’t match the off-road prowess of a Ford Explorer or Land Rover Discovery.

Pricey car but worth it

"Bought my Elite new and so I far have put 2,300 miles on it. I like cars but am not a car guy so take my review for what it is. It handles pretty well and it gets better gas milage than my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. It drives smoother and with less jarring then my old SUV but I really wish it was better over big bumps. I have read about the 9 speed engine not being so smooth but I have not noticed it being too bad. It does not have much pickup but that help the gas milage. The collision mitigation, forward collision warning system, road departure mitigation system, cross traffic blind-sport info system & lane keeping assist system can confuse you but I am sure in time they will all become second nature to me. The one thing that people have complained about and I will too is the infotainment system. It may not mean much to others but to me it does but it take 10-15 seconds after you start the car for the radio to come on. It also takes that long to come on when you stop the car and want to sit in the car while waiting for someone. Its not a deal breaker but it is aggravating. I also wish the radio came with a knob instead of a push button slider. Overall, I like the Honda Pilot Elite and would recommend it."

"This is the 5th Honda I have owned, but the first SUV. I did all the research, read all the reviews, and test drove 18 different vehicles before purchasing the 2016 (9 speed automatic transmission) Pilot. A little over 1 year after purchasing it (purchased in summer of 2015) I started to hear chirping sounds when it shifted from 2nd to 3rd. I just walked out of the dealer in shock - I need a new transmission at only a little over 11,000 miles. Yes it is covered under warranty but I am very disappointed as this is the 3rd Honda vehicle I've owned with transmission issues. Needless to say I'm holding my breath as to to see how this plays out. Sorry Honda - last chance. I will not be buying another Honda."

Pros: "Comfortable, easy to use third row"

Cons: "Nav Sys was an afterthought for designers"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I bought a 2016 in Dec 2015 and now have more than 9,000 miles on it. Only negative is the Nav System and I can't recommend it (very expensive option that wasn't well vetted). Within 3-months of purchase I was informed the software was out of date and needed to be upgraded. I looked at the online option and was info'd to expect 4-hours to accomplish the task myself. The local Honda service dept. didn't seem to be too engaged when I asked about it. Biggest gripe with Nav is the display where you can't easily identify optional routes when in traffic or zoom in/out - its a forward looking display rather than a top-down where you can see upcoming intersection / side streets and whether or not they go through. That said, I regularly drive up and down the central valley of California for 300-400 miles per day and the ride is very comfortable with no discomfort following 6-7 hours behind the wheel in a day. I also like the Sirius/XM radio and didn't hesitate to purchase a subscription based on my use. Lastly, the third row seating is very easy to use or lay down and the Honda rear mat was well designed folding so it can be easily used whether the 3rd row is up or down."
