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

Review

I bought my Pilot last winter to replace a Chevy diesel work truck and an aging Chrysler family van. The Pilot does double duty as a business vehicle that regularly tows a 5,000 pound utility trailer and a weekend family cruiser. Very impressed with how well it does both, and I'm very surprised to see the engine occasionally described as underpowered as I've experience nothing of the kind and am very impressed with both the towing ability and quickness from a stop, as well as the highway climbing torque. I'd suggest others try locking out the overdrive for most local driving/climbing if they want to see brisker performance. I have 13K trouble free miles to date and am averaging 18-19 mpg.

Favorite Features

Automatic 4WD, smooth tranny, powerful V6, built-in XM, quiet ride.

Suggested Improvements

Heavier doors, better quality interior materials.
