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

Review

I was surprised that the exterior looks more muscular and athletic than the most photos show. It has a more masculine look than the Highlander. The Pilot EX interior wasn't as attractive as the Highlander Limited - and the dealer-installed faux wood is about $600 extra. Still, the interior was comfortable - although perhaps more designed for a larger-framed person than is the Toyota. It was very roomy inside for a mid-sized - with the 2nd & 3rd row flat, the storage space was cavernous.

Favorite Features

I value the width for preventing rollover as well as the expected crash test worthiness. Acceleration was strong, but the engine was very quiet during all but hard acceleration. Considering the fuel efficiency, the power generated is wonderful.

Suggested Improvements

Interior should be more attractive - dash suffers by comparison to the Highlander Ltd. A trim person will find the seats and armrests are designed to cradle a heavier person. I am ordering, but supply and demand prevent the ability to negotiate a more favorable selling price.
