2009 Honda Pilot SUV EX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We have found the solution to the road noise and the problem with the SUV pulling to the right on our.The original tires were Goodyear and after changing them out to the Michelin Latitude tire the problem is now solved. Honda needs to think about replacing the Goodyear tire for the Michelin. It now drives like a charm!

Review

My only problem with this vehicle is it pulls to the right when you're not holding the steering wheel. The dealership already made wheel alignment twice to no avail. Also,the material they used for the interior scratches easily - cheap plastic. But over all this is a nice and reliable vehicle so far.


Favorite Features

Interior space,nice sound system


Suggested Improvements

Honda should explain why this vehicle pulls to the right and they should use better material in the interior

Review

We've been happy with our Pilot. We're hooked on the XM radio, love the dual zone climate controls and are very impressed with the overall room of the interior. We were looking forward to having the class 3 trailer hitch, but were sorely disappointed with the fact that just the Honda trailer wire harness is $181 dollars for a 2 foot harness under the bumper(?!). Even more disappointed that the connector under the bumper is a goofy connector that NOBODY carries yet. Happy over all though. We'll just wait to buy a harness from someone not trying to rip off a customer for an overpriced set of wires. Happy with the handling, but our Pilot pulls to the right on level ground at constant speed


Favorite Features

Love the XM radio and sound system. Interior space with the rear seats folded down is great. Love the dual zone climate controls in the front and the separate climate control for the rear passengers.


Suggested Improvements

Extend that trailer harness under the bumper another 2 feet so it reaches the hitch mount. $180 bucks for a 2 foot wiring harness? LAME! For the money the Pilot costs, you could include the harness and keep your customers happy. Also, figure out why so many Pilots pull to the right. Ours does too.

Review

Took receipt of the vehicle and took it on a 3000 mile vacation drive. Although new it drove great and averaged between 22.8 and 24.4 mpg for the trip. No problems at all. Very comfortable.


Favorite Features

Comfortable ride.


Suggested Improvements

Glove box could be re-worked and made larger, seems to be lost space in that area.
