I only just picked up my Pilot 4 days ago (2007)and I am thrilled with it! I test drove the Highlander and even though the outside is attractive, the comfort of driving one even for a test drive just didn't cut it for me. I wanted more from my vehicle for the price range. I went with the Pilot since it was over $8,000 cheaper. I know I made the right decision after bringing home the Pilot and driving it.
This SUV handles like a car and I am used to being high up and fell in love with it. I wished I could have afforded the Nav. system which is Awesome!
The only option which isn't offered which would be a great help is the on steering wheel music controls. They should light up at night. Until I figure out the buttons it shouldn't be a problem but this should have been standard.
