It was between the Pilot, the Lexus RX 330, and the Ford Explorer. I chose the Pilot because it offered everything I needed and it still stay within my budget. It's been two months and I know now that I made the correct choice.
Size (seating capacity for 8), roomy (enough for a family of five to all sit comfortably), cargo space (I can always put down the third row of seats if I needed additional cargo space), and stylish (It looks good on the road especially with the added featuers of the running boards, and fog lights:>)
