2004 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

After a lot of research on similar SUV's (Rav, CRV, Cherokee, Pathfinder, Xterra) I drove the Pilot and immediately saw the difference. Quality interior and nice materials. Good takeoff and passing power, the ride is quiet and when you're not "on it" the 5-speed tranny will keep you cruising at around 2k RPM which helps gas mileage. When driven conservatively i average 20mpg on back road driving. ABS brakes work well, though don't always read imput well and will pull too hard sometimes. AWD feels seamless and it handles snow perfectly. Minimal quality issues, like the plastic housing inside my taillight broke and you cant take it apart to fix where it "pops" back together. Great car overall though.

Best Features

Heated leather seats are awesome. Holds several passengers in comfort and with 3rd row seats down there's plenty of trunk space. Anything I've packed in back fits including 4X8 plywood sheets (diagonally) with room to spare. Low insurance costs and many safety features. Nice stereo and center storage.

Worst Features

It's a long reach to the HVAC and radio controls. Much improved access to 3rd row seat for passengers needed. Awkward placing of gear shifter had me grabbing the wiper arm a lot at first. Wish the rear window lifted independently as on later models. Oh, and the stigma of driving a mommy car :)
