"Phenomenal vehicle. Never an issue of any kind. Unbelievable reliability and safety. Was rear ended recently by a new Ford Explorer which was totaled,(knocked the engine out and smashed the Ford to the windshield) the rear glass in the Pilot didnt even break and the passenger cabin was not invaded by the Ford, and rear deck still opened and I drove the Pilot home - amazing for a 60+mph rear impact. Uni-body didnt even torque, and it was repaired. Better yet I walked away without a scratch; unfortunately I cannot say that for the other driver. Will be getting another Pilot very soon. Reliability and safety - what more could you want!"
Pros: "Reliability, Ease to drive, looks, everything"
Cons: "Adjusting to width, instument controls"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"We have had our 2012 Pilot Touring w/RES & Nav since November 2011. It has been an incredible car/truck. It is very easy to drive as the steering is responsive and smooth. The engine is no maintenance and stong (not throaty or truck-like)...we had used synthetic oil since mile #1. We have black on black...so, it shows extremely well, almost luxury when detailed. We couldn't be happier, as its the wife's car and the boys thoroughly enjoy the space and conveniences. The cargo room is more than you would expect (I have easily moved furniture and a full size bed w/box spring just by putting the second row down). The toughest adjustment was getting used to the instrument controls/RES/radio controls and getting comfortable with the width of the Pilot (it is wider than the standard SUV).
I highly recommend this car for those that don't want the stereotype of a minivan, but the conveniences of one. It has the reliability of a Honda, quality of a Lexus, and size of a HMMWV."
