Went with the 2007 Pilot over the CRV to get extra space as we often total 4 adult passengers, and sometimes more. CRV felt a little tight for 4 tops. Preferred the superior quality of the leather in the Pilot. CRV leather felt thin and has a tufted look, which some may prefer, but we don't. CRV felt somewhat underpowered, but not too bad. No question the Pilot has plenty of power. Overall very pleased with the Pilot. Expecting it will do well in the snow if we get any.
Honda quality and reliability. Easy to drive. V-6 engine. Roomy interior and optional 3rd row seating. Modest appearance; doesn't look like a beast. Minimal blind spots.
Overall the "dated" dashboard controls take a little getting used to. Needs larger tires, Front passenger seat heater in the seat back (the driver's seat has it), Front passenger seat power adjustable, Telescopic steering wheel, Lighted steering wheel controls, MP3 capabilities. Reduce road noise.
