Great Overall Value
By Jim on
2007 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is a great SUV. Roomier and better build quality than any other I test drove. Very smooth shifting and good acceleration. Quiet ride and responsive handling (considering its size). I have the 2WD version with the "ECO" feature. Seems to work as advertised (getting about 18-20 city/22-24 highway).
Plenty of storage and seating flexibility. If you have kids under 5' tall, the 3rd row seating is a must on longer trips (peace maker). The center console/storage area is great.
XM radio is horrible (why not Sirius?). The Pilot's stereo has limited channel selection/display capabilities. Need aux input plugs for iPods, etc., in front and back.
