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


Review

I've had this car for over a year, and it has been great! It's averaged 20.5 mpg. It has a smooth ride. It tows like a champ, and handles off-road very well.


Best Features

Very roomy interior, comfortable seating, Fits two car seats and a booster side-by-side.


Worst Features

I don't love the exterior boxy look, but I'll take the Honda reliability and technology over a better looking crossover.

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


Review

First let me say that all reviews depend on what the reviewer wants from a car. I needed a car that would be safe for my family, functional, and a good value. The Honda Pilot delivers on all accounts. One of the best features for us is the interior room. With the width of the 2nd row seat you can easily fit a normal sized adult in the middle seat between 2 car seats, good luck doing that in a Highlander! First hand experience says the car is very safe as well. Last month another Pilot lost control and hit us head on. Both cars totaled, no injuries, and I had my kids and parents in the car! I'm getting my 2010 Pilot tomorrow. The car also drives well, and did great in the snow!


Best Features

Interior Room, Safety, Towing Capacity, Interior Storage Compartments


Worst Features

The passenger climate control should be a slave to the driver side until it's manually changed. Having to change both all the time is a pain...

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


Review

I looked @ Saturn Outlook, NIssan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia,and Buick Enclave. I was pleased with all of them but I wanted a vehicle that had great resale value, safe,good gas mileage and is known for longevity. I did research between all of them compared features I wanted and did not. Everytime I thought I wanted another brand I was back @ the Pilot. It is very comfortable and It fitted me well. I took my Pilot to the mountains and was averaging around 30-32 miles per gallon. I truly recommend this vehicle.


Best Features

radio, leather seats, gas mileage,comfort


Worst Features

bigger glove box, offer bose sound system or harmon Kardon, offer black leather with all exterior colors
