2008 Honda Pilot Value Package 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Safety and reliability is what made me look at the Pilot to replace a Toyota minivan. For the value of the current incentives, it is too good to pass up. It is a great choice for a family vehicle. The interior is logical and the exterior, well, it's a traditional SUV look. I like the Pilot but I wouldn't label it as a stand out. I do recommend it for its practical purpose and Honda's good safety name. I also feel that Honda treats their customers better.
Spacious, traditional clean design, adequate or better road handling than most SUV's in the V6 class. VCM feature, and standard safety features.
Strengthen its safety record with better tires, standard rear view camera - make this a standard safety feature rather than a nice to have option, standard automatic headlight feature rather than making those optional. Would like to see better MPG.
