LOVE my Pilot
By mathspiffy on
2004 Honda Pilot LX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our Pilot in Feb. 2012.
It had approximately 87,000 miles on it.
I upgraded from a Honda Civic to get more space for kids, cargo, and to have a great roadtrip vehicle for the family.
Our Pilot has been everything we needed and more.
All we've done is regular maintenance, and we have had no problems.
It drives like a dream on the highway and has TONS of space for carseats, kid stuff, and other cargo.
We are adding a hitch for a cargo rack and the running boards next, and it'll be perfect.
We are very pleased with our Pilot and will be keeping it as long as it runs!
+ Lots of cargo and headroom
+ 3 carseats can fit in the back
+ Third row seat is great for carrying more kids or road trips with the family
+ Smooth easy ride on the highway
+ Tight turning radius for a car of its size making parking in tight spots easy
+ Good factory sound system
+ Easy to install hitch, running boards, and roof rack
+ Reasonable MPG for its size and class
- I'd love to have full 4x4 in this vehicle, but the VTM-4 feature is good for emergencies
- Leather was cracked and pretty worn on the front seats but doesn't snag clothing and isn't torn.
- We installed an iPod jack which took a professional installation.
It was not something we could do easily on our own.
- 3rd row seat is only good for small adults or kids.
Not a full size seat, but back seats are plenty big and roomy for adults.
