2004 Honda Pilot SUV EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Tested the Toyota Highlander and found
the Pilot was more to the taste of
what we were looking for.
So far, so good but only have 10k
miles on it. After 50k miles, then
ask me. The light indicators on the
center console are very dim to check
if ingaged or not.
Seating for eight---I'd like to see
the how three will fit in the rear
otherwise a good choice.

I bought this car new. It has NEVER had a problem ( besides battery and brakes) I have 80,000 miles. I was hit by a Taurus, I got out of the Honda and could not see a dent, finally I saw it, only $900 to repair (Taurus totalled) These are great cars, mileage could be better, wind noise bad, great product.
Seats, reliability, size, looks great after 5 years!
Can't have the windows down due to vibration from wind. Gas tank too small, only 16 gallons.

When I first bought it I loved it. But then soon after I had the transmission go out and after research found a recall on the transmission. Honda has not been helpful at all. Now I have to go pay 4000+ to get my car fixed although it should be their money paying for it since it was recalled. They said they fixed it by putting in an oil jet kit but it is far from fixed! Very disappointed! Also the drivers side seat gets very hot to the point where I start smelling my clothes almost burning! So much for heated seats when you cannot use them.
Transmission is junk and heated seats need to not burn so much you are afraid of it starting a fire.
