2008 Honda Pilot Special Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
After totalling my Chevy TrailBlazer, and then rushing to buy a GMC Yukon, I wanted a vehichle with a fold flat third row, 4wd, rear entertainment system, and lots of extras. I found it all with my Pilot Special Edition, with kids we knew we didn't want leather. I haven't had to use the 4wd yet, but hope it's everything Honda promises. It seems noiser than my Yukon, and not as comfortable, but I was willing to compromise given the rest of the goodies. The gas mileage is reasonable. In town, I get about 16-17 mpg, and 20-21 on the highway (at ~70mph). So far, everything rings true to the Honda value.
4wd, RES, sunroof, interior style and colors, fold-flat third row, adjustable second row, xm radio, interior fabric, and storage spaces (everywhere).
Cushier seats, less road noise, better gas mileage, and cheaper accessories.
