Best of all worlds

2008 Honda Pilot Special Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We replaced our 2005 Chrysler Pacifica (boat) with this truck and are loving it. The Pilot is so much lighter on it's feet and nimble in the urban jungle. Driving is quiet and smooth on all roads and it's great in the snow! Wife loves that it heats up quick on sub-zero MN winter mornings. Husband loves the acceleration and visibility from sitting up high in the cockpit. Kids love the DVD and parents love the wireless headsets for quiet long trips to grandparents.
Quiet smooth ride, sure footing/traction in snow, Honda reliability(we have an 06' Accord w/ 64k miles on it, never been in the shop). Heats up fast on cold Minnesota mornings! Cell phone holder in foldout of main console. Fog lights really light up the road.
Stereo controls on dash not as far out of reach from driver position. Driver leg room limited, can't stretch out my left leg while driving. Gas mileage, Highlander and Acadia have it beat by 2-4 mpg.
