2005 Honda Pilot SUV EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

It is hard to go wrong with a Honda. However, there a few quirks with the 2005 Pilot. While the interior is spacious and the instrument panel well laid out, leg room comfort of the driver is less than desirable. Honda needs to rethink the placement of the emergency brake - it interferes with those of us with moderate and long legs. It is hard to strech out and take advantage of the foot rest with brake pedal where it is. The stiff rear-hatch tension makes it hard to close an open hatch - particluarly while carrying something. Acceleration is often jerky and unrefined - particularly in city driving. The sound systems is OK, but could use improvment - my cd changer was broken at delivery


Best Features

Cruise control and radio controls on steering wheel. Power window switch design. Intrument panel layout. 3rd row seat - stow and go. Rear A/C manual control.


Worst Features

Improved GAS MILEAGE! Relocation of parking brake. Better exterior color selections. More felxibility in options.

Review

The more I drive my Pilot, the more I like it. Putting in almost 80 mi. daily on Houston highways, I always feel safe, sheltered, and am never exhausted by sometimes stop-and-go traffic. When the roads open up, the Pilot just cruises....


Best Features

center console...holds a lot of stuff and has a really comfortable armrest


Worst Features

put rubber molding on wheel fenders....these are too easily scraped

Review

We took this SUV on a road trip through Yellowstone and the Rockies, excellent gas mileage of 23/28. We never thought we would get such good mileage from a big vehicle. The ride was very smooth and comfortable. According to one of the cons of owning this vehicle is the feeling that one feels to big behind the wheel. I am only 5'2" and didn't have any problems, I did not feel as though the vehicle was to big to handle. I felt very comfortable driving it. Excellent vehicle!


Best Features

roomy interior, smooth ride, good gas mileage

the space for the third row seats can be improved for leg space.
