Anyone looking for a GREAT deal on an 8 passenger SUV needs to take a look at the 08 Pilot. Honda is GIVING these things away to make room for the new 09 Pilot's that hit the lots over the next week or so. I was able to get my EX-L for under the TMV price and the dealer had added pin stripes, wheel locks, mud flaps and a cargo tray. I love this vehicle. I'm in sales and have already driven 5k miles in 2 months and it's a breeze to get in and out of. Huge storage space with the 3rd row folded down. It is noisy on the highway and the body lean in corners takes a little getting used to but the overall ride is nice. I looked at the VeraCruz, Journey, Pacifica and CX-9 and the Pilot is best
Leather seating is very comfortable for long drives, smooth ride, xm radio, plenty of room for storage and adults
I'm sure the 09 has an MP3 hookup, lessen the wind noise, should have LATCH anchors in the middle of 2nd row
