Ok but not up to what I expected
By Steve on


2008 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I sold a 4-runner when getting this, and despite it being a Honda, it has been far more problematic than it should be. I'll start with the pros though... Pros: Comfortable seats, roomy, third row, good view out, good power. Cons: Handling is boatlike around corners, road noise is more than I would have wanted, the interior has so many squeaks and rattles that I've given up having it at the dealership to fix them, various delivery defect: tire belt problem, warped rear brake rotor, multiple key FOB problems. I am hoping that the long term reliability outweighs the various downsides.

Best Features

Room, tons of it for people and cargo. Seats are comfortable, and the kids like the back seat more than in any other car.

Worst Features

Interior integrity, delivery quality control, and road noise. Though the road noise isn't all bad - it does help conceal the squeaking from the interior.
