"I bought my Pilot 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier! I am a big man and need space and with the Pilot I actually feel small in the inside. The ride is comfortable and the power is great. I live in Kentucky so we don't get that much snow but when we got 13" a month ago my 2WD Pilot was great. With the traction control it barely ever spun and didn't have any trouble on hills getting grip. I needed the gas mileage with my commute so it was a perfect combo of room, gas mileage, safety, and utility. Not to mention the quality of a Honda. I hope this helps everyone. Oh and the VCM (variable cylinder management is great...it helps out on the gas mileage. I get anywhere from 21-23 mpg on the highway."
"Honda did a great job with the Pilot. It has everything where you need it, gets great gas milage for a SUV and has a very comfortable ride. It's great in deep snow and I love the space. Perfect with kids and dogs."
"Been Honda man for years .This my 2nd
Pilot.Traded in the 2003 with 73000 on the 2005.2003 was perfect with excellent trade-in .2005 now has 130,000 of highway miles
and looks good and has been trouble free
except my tire dealer can't get the rear tires to factory specs.Therefore it wears out rear tires quickly.Otherwise it has been a great buy.Hwy mileage at 75 is about 20.5"
"does everythink excellently. superb handling on the hwy or on bad roads/snow. climate control is perfect. seat comfort ideal, visibility perfect. Fuel milage ranges 16-21 depending on time of year. Wish mileage was a little better, but awd tall vehicle and climate control, well, it ok. Cant have mileage and all these conveniences too. Just change the oil and go forever."
"The 2005 Honda pilot has excellent power along with comfort. There are few blind spots. The smooth ride especially over road bumps, help realize the suspension and balance only capable of quality manufactured by Honda"
"Have had my 2005 since brand new and it is an overall awesome vehicle. Except for gas mileage it performs in every other way just perfect Well recommended for someone looking for a nice sized SUV with some pep."
"great price, easy to drive, easy on gas.Interior can be improved (easy to scratch plastic),I love 3rd row seat.A lot of leg room for back seat passingers .I love this SUV, power of 4x4 SUV, but drives like a small car.Also great price !!!"
"This 2006 Honda Pilot has never been in the shop for any defect. Just for oil changes and tire rotation.
Attention at Honda dealers has been excellent, even during our evacuation to Florida for Hurricane Katrina."
"This is an awesome vehicle , i bought it used for 44000 miles and now I have 81000 miles , its has been really very very reliable , sturdy , rugged, safe in bad weather , powerful V6 , love it when I have to merge on a highway it just flies , this SUV does not have any maintainence issues , just the regular maintenance which I follow religiously since I love the Pilot and like to keep it in top shape
As the saying goes " If you take care of the car , it will take care of you "
Gas mileage not very bad but can be better , cab noise can be reduced when windows are opened"
"I rode in the 2006 Toyoto Highlander and 2006 Ford Explorer. They felt okay. I then rode in a 2006 Honda Pilot. As soon as I got in it felt like I had already been driving it. I didn't want a new one so I searched for a used and could only find a 2003 EXL. It has awesome room and performance. I would buy another one in a heartbeat."
"I bought my 03 Pilot in June 07 with 37000 miles now it has over 50k on it and still going with just oil changes. Great comfortability, style, price, convenience and dependability. I had to move my sister into her dormitory, my parents planned to pack up their Chrysler Pacifica and my Honda Pilot needless to say we didn't need their Pacifica to move anything plenty of room with seats down. Also had a 95 Accord previous to purchasing the Pilot and only did minor maintenance and at least 3 accidents on that vehicle, it has over 250k on it and now my younger sister is using it as her first vehicle and its still going strong. Honda definitely knows how to make a great vehicle. I should know I work at a chain of car dealerships."
