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


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

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


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

This is the best value for money when it comes to families with kids who do not want to spend thru the roof for a very dependable, fun-to-drive, very reliable, reputed, solid SUV. With its all wheel drive, ABS, leather, and many other features, this is the best choice for feople who really do not care so much about the name.

Pickup, leather interior, sum/moon roof, ABS, AWD, 6 cd changer, heated seats, V6, 255 Hp, and many more


Worst Features

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

Review

We bought our Pilot to replace a Yukon XL. We test drove the Pilot and fell in love! The dealership was a breeze to do business with, we got an excellent deal. The ride of the Pilot is so smooth and the shifting of the vehicle is hardly noticable, huge plus from the Yukon. We have two children and they LOVE this SUV! Both have lots of room and seating choices...they DON'T have to sit by each other. The DVD system is a lifesaver on long roadtrips. We can't say enuf about our Pilot!


Best Features

LOVE the sunroof and the fact that I control the DVD, the wireless headphones are nice too! The smooth shifting is wonderful as is the ride. The 9 cupholders is every mother's dream and all the cubbies are a plus also. We also like the consol design, easy to reach and use.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have seperate A/C- heater controls for the driver and passenger. The radio/DVD should be easier to master. Side airbags would be a HUGE improvement for this vehicle!!!! Improved fuel economy would be nice also, maybe a hybrid????

Review

We bought our Pilot about a year or so ago, and still love it. Its reliable, quiet, and comfortable. Only fault so far is with the seat control panel on the left side of driver's seat; we are on the 2nd replacement; seems that the movement of getting in/out knocks it off the seat. Just a minor thing, but an convenience.


Best Features

Where to start? Great seating and leg room, especially with the 3rd row seating stowed away. Love the quick down/up feature on driver's window.


Worst Features

Do away with the 3rd row seating - unless you really have a large crew, it isn't necessary - make it an option!
