About Honda Pilot

The 2016 Honda Pilot crossover SUV marks the third generation of this popular 3-row family hauler, and it evolves not just to stay with the times, but to remain a step ahead of its ever-tougher competition. The sleek new shape is slightly smaller, and while it sacrifices a smidge of interior space, it's still comfortable for eight passengers. The trade-off is a downright luxurious all-new dash and interior design, and a feature-packed Elite model that drives the premium feel home. The new Pilot also offers electronic driving aids like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, crash mitigation, and so on. Throw in excellent driving dynamics, and the new Honda Pilot is sure to give its Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander and Ford Explorer competition night sweats.

"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."

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 Within 3-months of purchase I was informed the software was out of date and needed to be upgraded.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."

Pros: "Looks nice"

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

"I am a 30 year Honda owner and though I would continue to only buy Honda for the rest of my life. Unfortunately the new Pilot has been a huge disappointment. My previous 2005 Pilot was my fav car ever but the new edition is a completely different experience. The entertainment system is a complete nightmare - difficult to operate and spontaneously jumps to different screens, functions, etc for no apparent reason. The gear shift if accidentally hit while driving will easily slip into a different gear (from drive to neutral for example). It also takes a long time to respond when shifting into reverse. In addition, when I step on the gas it goes nowhere for a few seconds and then leaps forward rapidly jerking everyone in the car. The car seems to be so digital now it no longer operates smoothly. I have come to the end of the road with buying Honda. I feel sad....."
