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


Review

My wife drives the car the most, especially in town. I drive on the highway. While the gas mileage is low compared to a sedan, she feels that the in-out comfort and the high view the car affords her are wonderful. The engineers and designers have invested a lot of thinking into the interior design of the car and have come up with another winner. There was one small glitch involving shifting to a lower gear(automatic), but we figured it out.


Favorite Features

Driving height, smoothness of engine and suspension, attractive exterior.


Suggested Improvements

Make it easier to remove front floor mats, put the shift lever on the floor.

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


Review

We bought our 2003 Honda new and have close to 200,000 miles on the car. It is still going strong and we've had no problems. We have done all of the recommended maintenance as outlined in the Honda owners manual (oil changes, brakes, engine tune ups, etc.) The car has been great in the snow and with good tire tread(all season radials), we have had NO problems thus far. Reliability has been exceptional. The interior has held up fairly well after the wear and tear of three kids. Our oldest child is now driving and this car will probably be driven "into the ground" by her. Our experience has been so good that we are looking at the 2010 Pilot! Overall, we're happy with our Honda Pilot!


Favorite Features

The midsize of this SUV! It is big enough to handle most of our needs but not as big as the huge SUVs (Chevy Suburbans, GMC Yukons, Ford Expeditions, etc.) that are seen often being driven by a parent with 1-2 kids.


Suggested Improvements

I wish the car had more storage space behind the third row seat! Ceiling heat/AC vents would be great for the second and third row occupants (like the Odessey has). Make a hybrid or improve MPG please.

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


Review

I also have a 2003 honda pilot. We have kept up on all maintenance on this vehicle. Had drive light flash and was told 4th gear pressure sensor was bad, had that fixed. A month later my transmission starts acting up, take to dealer and they told me I needed a whole new transmission and was gonna cost us $3000.00 to fix

They should give you the 6 CD changer standard. Other than that a fun ride.
