We purchased this car new based primarily on safety and reliability rankings. Haven't had to test safety, but reliability and quality have been excellent.
Heated seats are comfortable, even for a tall guy. Good visibility and driving position. Strong engine
Obviously, better gas mileage would be great, but yo can't have both 270+ HP and fuel economy. We also have a new 4 cylinder Subaru Outback that gets better gas mileage, but it seems anemic in comparison. Overall, we're pleased with the purchase and would recommend these Pilots to anyone.
