Should be the "Standard" for SUVs

2006 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
105,000 miles and I've had one repair - the radiator. Otherwise, just routine maintenance. Goes through anything once you replace the lousy OEM tires. No rattles after 5 years - nothing. Just incredibly solid.
Have had 8 adults in it, with no complaints. Can haul stuff and people. Family of 5 to the beach? No problem. Big visit to Lowe's? No problem. Handle a Buffalo winter? No problem.
Great highway vehicle. Superb comfort for long drives. You feel very safe in it. Traction control and Stability control work great.
Great mileage for its size and hauling capability. 18 around town. 22 on the highway.
All-around comfort. Key with security built in (no more fobs). All the storage compartments. No dumb captain's chairs - so 5 can fit with the third seat down. Third row disappears into the floor (easily). Second row folds almost flat (easily). Three-point belts for all 8 people.
Diesel model for better mileage. iPod jack for radio.
