"I am very pleased with EVERYTHING about this vehicle - except - it's fuel economy. Honda says the Pilot is expected to get 16 Mpg in the city, I regularly record 13 Mpg in city driving. Now contrast that to 24 Mpg on the highway. What a difference. I hear you saying, swap my lead foot for a feather foot but I swear, I'm not flooring it. As a side note though, with 244 Hp on tap, the Pilot will REALLY get up and GO. I just wish Honda would have included a mild electric assist for stop and go driving to ease the fuel guzzling that occurs when leaving stop lights.
"I got the 2004 EX-L in August of '04 - other than over paying for it (Dealer) this vehicle was the best I ever owned. I drove it and sold it with 68000 miles on it 1 month ago and only had to do regular maintenance and 1 set of tires.
Very comfortable ride, decent mileage for the power of the engine. Have 4 children and there was always plenty of space and lots of storage in the back.
The luggage rack is a pain, but other than that - vehicle was awesome.
The only reason I sold it was I was ready for something new. Looking at the Acura MDX for a step up."
