2006 Honda Pilot SUV EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love my 2006 Pilot. It goes when I go. Only major drawback I have is there is no room to collect your crumbs and coins when they drop to your side. My vacuum wand just isn't thin enough.

2006 Honda Pilot SUV EX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Already had 58000 miles when we brought it. Love the power. Good getup and go. Have four kids and they like the dvd system. Not factory. A nice looking SUV. Is a little loud on concrete roads. But not bad. Like the safety, three row side air bags. 5 star ratings. Safety is a big selling point for me and my family!


Favorite Features

5 star ratings, power, plenty of room for the kids. And two dogs. Good gas mileage for a SUV.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a little less road noise.

2006 Honda Pilot SUV EX-L 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Leased in June 2006. So far so good. Very reliable. Only oil change maintenance. No major problems or repair work. Except for a bad back speaker that the service dept said there was nothing wrong with...it still isn't fixed. Currently deciding if I should purchase after lease ends July 2009.


Favorite Features

Seat heaters, roomy interior, 3rd seat fold down, sunroof, leather seats. Easy to drive and has great visibility.


Suggested Improvements

Headlights are too low and dim. Some controls are oddly placed, such as cruise control and sunroof switches. Cold have better gas mileage. Wish it had better radio system. Interior finish is lackluster. Road noise.

2006 Honda Pilot SUV EX 4dr SUV w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We know 6 people with 06 or late Pilots- all have been into dealer because mice crawled into to HVAC. Why? It's not covered enough in undercarriage. Design flaw. $250 each visit. Side trim on front leather seat on ours (and 3 others wecknow of) has worn through. Why? Cheap material. Design flaw. We get snow. Don't buy a Pilot with 4WD and expect anything but nasty control issues on slippery roads and steep roads: ABS locks up, auto 4WD has no bite (even with new mud/snow tires). Design flaws. If you need room, good traction and no mice or trim issues, buy something else.


Favorite Features

Can't think of any.


Suggested Improvements

Fix design flaws - if possible.

2006 Honda Pilot SUV LX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Approaching 50K, so far not disappointed at all. Runs solid, fun to drive, does not feel very big vehicle but roomy inside. Getting better gas mileage on highway with speed between 60-70 mph. Using full synthetic Mobil 1 oil may be helpful. Will write review every 25K.


Favorite Features

Reliability, Build Quality, Interior Space.


Suggested Improvements

Seats could be more comfortable! Better Head Lights.
