The family is soon to grow again so we decided to swap out the '03 CRV. While the mileage suffered (not surprisingly), we're so happy with our decision to go with the Pilot. It's a blast to drive and has so many handy little features that we didn't realize we were missing out on. Incredibly solid on the road -- feels very substantial without feeling just plain BIG. We're just hoping this thing performs as well in snow as the CRV did (I've read less than stellar reviews on the Goodyear Integrity tires that come on the Pilot). So far, we love it.
Two separate covered storage areas in the center console. Throaty growl of the V6. Steering wheel radio controls. XM radio. All kinds of space.
A vehicle this good should have a memory function for the power seat, a line-in for an IPOD or other MP3 player, a "mileage minder" which shows instant and average fuel economy and the aforementioned steering wheel radio controls should be illuminated at night.
