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

Review

Have owned the vehicle for 1 year and have taken several 400-600 mile trips but mostly drive it around town. Averages 18.6 per gallon. 3rd row seat actually usable as opposed to our '08 Pilot. They stretched this wheelbase about 3 inches and it made a difference in 2nd/3rd row legroom (especially 2nd row) and in ride quality. Ride is firm to sporty but definitely not carlike (like Highlander). Auto (5 speed) transmission shifts seemlessly and goes in and out of cylinder deactivation without any noticeable difference in performance. Cabin seems quiet (for a Honda) and the 4wd is awesome in the rain. Massive amount of cargo space with 3rd row seat stowed away. Front seat ergonomics good with leather.

Favorite Features

Rear Hatch opens easily; rear hatch has glass which opens independently of hatch and is useful when you don't want to open full hatch. Easy access front/rear doors and plenty of legroom for driver when you adjust steering wheel. The cockpit does not feel tight like our '09 Rav4. It seems to ride high.
