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

Review

Just returned from a 3500 mile trip. At real world Interstate speeds (75-76 mph) I was able to squeeze out 21.5 mpg. A bit low but this is a big box! Suspension is a bit too stiff and with a truck type tire and stiffer steering than our previous two vehicles ('07 Pacifica & '02 Highlander) you never feel like you're 'part of the vehicle'. Bucket seats are firm but comfortable. Plenty of cubby holes and storage compartments but interior trim materials are hard to the touch and unattractive. Sound system is just 'OK'. '02 Highlander sound system has better features. Glad we leased. Engine Mgmt. system works well. No discernible sensation when system shuts down or turns on cylinders.

Favorite Features

Storage space. Front seats.

Suggested Improvements

Better grade of interior finishes. Rear camera image difficult to view in bright sunlight. Radar sensor back-up system more useful.
