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!
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.
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.
