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


Review

I can't say enough about the Pilot. It meets all our needs and then some. It is an urban vehicle and a traveling vehicle. It is comfortable on long drives and nimble enough for city driving. The amenities are plentiful for cost and the quality is great. There are a few minor problems with some of the Pilots out there according to other owners (mine seems to have less than others)but for a first year model, it is the least problematic than any domestic vehicle I have owned. Honda has won me over with the Pilot.


Best Features

Overall ride, comfort, handling, room, versatility.


Worst Features

Honda could have offered a sunroof, heated seats in America, better tires,traction control, positional second row seats. Additionally a better position for the shift selector.

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


Review

I'm prorating the yearly mileage as I have only got 5000 on the odometer at this point. The Pilot still has the fit and finish it did when I drove it off the lot. From a very unpractical point of view, my favorite "feature" of this rig is that I don't see myself coming and going when I'm on the road. It's nice being a little unique.


Best Features

Smart interior design, comfortable seating, and spacious.


Worst Features

none

Interior room, visibility


Worst Features

Factory fog lights, sunroof, better sound system, brighter back-up lights, heated seats and power foldable side mirrors(this car is wide!!)
