2005 Honda Pilot EX-L-RES
By charles on
2005 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
First of two new Pilots we own. Bought a 2007 just because of how great this vehicle performs. We are a tall family and like the expansive window area. This one was hit(at 33000mi) in the rear by a '06 Infinity G35x. Totaled the Infinity but only damaged the rear bumper, tailgate, exhaust, driver, passenger seat and cross member. Honda repaired and drives straight as an arrow. Still very reliable at 49,000 mi. Need tires by winter(dealer say most pilots tires do not last this long-We drive city/hwy and mountain roads) Get 20 mpg with air conditioning on or off.
Heated seats, and all the standard features on a EX-L-RES.
Very poor heating and cooling for back seat(considering a 2009 Pilot to replace the 2007). Too hot in summer and too cold in winter. Front seats are flat and prefer the new design on the 2007.
