Better SUV in the market
By Hoka-ORL on
2009 Honda Pilot Touring 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This new Pilot not only looks great but it performs great too! We test drove other SUVs but the Pilot not only captured us with its looks but now that we have own the car for a month, we can say the performance is excellent too. Fuel economy for having the shut-off piston system is a bit disappointing but nevertheless, it is on par with the competition. We purchased the Touring w/nav and we couldn't be happier. Some say the road noise is a problem, but we did not find it to be that bad. I also read that the engine does not provide as much power but I actually think it has adequate power (unless you intend to pull a boat or something like that). Overall very satisfied and highly recommend it.
Nav. System, Looks, Large Mirrors with blinkers, XM Radio, Memory Seats, 3rd row seat, Reclining 2 row seat, storage compartment in the trunk area, and on and on...
Gas mileage. It would be awesome if this car could actually average in the 20s. Right now it stays in the 16-18 in the city.
