2003 Honda Pilot LX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent vehicle. I understand a lot of people like bold styling than bland. But it's really not ugly, just bland. You will notice its overall solid feel. I like the fact that it's based on MDX and Odyssey. Hopefully, it should enjoy a great resale value as well.


Best Features

Lots of room 3rd row seat that folds split flat Dual A/C Great steering


Worst Features

Too heavy Brakes need adjustment according to weight Better gas mileage Better Audio system Keyless entry

2003 Honda Pilot EX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had my Pilot for about 2 months and 4000 miles. Good ride, lots of room and good performance. Fuel economy has been good, about 18-19 mpg during drive to work and with bikes and cargo carrier attached, about 20 on long trips without extra stuff (not sure what other people expect from a 4400 lb SUV, better than I ever got with my Jeep). Good power and acceleration. Not flashy but good looking vehicle. Got fog lights, running boards, towing package, cross bars and rear mud flaps added and paid about $1200 over MSRP (about $2200 worth of extras).


Best Features

Good on gas for size, lots of room, typical good Honda vehicle.


Worst Features

3rd row OK for small kids only, maybe sliding 2nd row seat. Better placement for gear shift lever. Roll down rear window so you can carry long items without leaving hatch open. Maybe a V8 option with higher towing capacity.
