Looked for an SUV for my wife for 6 months, including BMW, M-B, others. My wife didn't give the OK until she drove the Pilot. Lots of bells/whistles, but well laid out & easy to use. It's incredibly well- equipped, with pleasant surprises everywhere. She raves about it, and her friends want the salesman's card!
Seating/cargo flexibility -- room for 8, or fold the seats and carry lots of stuff. Better than our old Dodge minivan. Also like the XM Satellite -- too bad we don't get a signal in Hawaii!
No different-colored body cladding on the EX-L. Haven't had it long enough to suggest anything else.
