2010 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought in 2011 with 40k miles, just turned 94k. She's been fairly reliable, just oil changes/brakes/tires up to this point. I was told brakes were the weak point on Hondas. My brakes constantly warp. Interior quality is ok, seats are very sturdy and comfortable for long drives/trips. The armrests and center console have torn and bubbled, respectively. Enough with the bad though. I'm a big fan of the automatic eco mode that turns off two cylinders while cruising to maximize mileage. I average 19.5/20 mpg a tank. I like the aux outlet for the radio also. Sound system is decent for a base model. It has surprisingly held its value over the years. Big safe vehicle that I would recommend to anyone


Favorite Features

MP3 radio, Automatic Eco drive mode, smooth steering, durable seat fabric, compass, TPMS, third row, independent REAR A/C is great, engine power, tons of cupholders, sliding/convertible lid storage for driver and passenger


Suggested Improvements

all models should have external temperature indicator, re-engineer the braking system (hasn't failed but rotors warp easily), should move second row a/c vents to roof instead of knee-level, better armrest/center console materials

2010 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've been a loyal honda consumer for years!! Although I love my pilot I am very disappointed on the quality of the interior. The center arm rest completely tore. I mean, I paid extra for leather interior, come to find out that center arm rest is absolutely not leather but a super thin plastic material. The door arm rest also has torn. Same cheap material. I don't get it. I'm not an abusive driver or car owner. I am very careful with my cars. Very disappointed.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality for complete interior, not just some parts.

2010 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have the Pilot EX-L w/RES. I don't have any children, but I like to do a lot of whitewater trips and I bought the Pilot because I can sleep in it, carry a lot of people for shuttle and carry a lot of boats. I have equipped it with a Thule rack that fits onto the already beefy luggage rack bars. I'm thinking the RES will come in handy on boring car trips. I've had it for 8 months and am loving the comfort and having just weathered 2 big snow storms, I can attest it is a beast in the snow, considering it doesn't have true 4wd. Mileage sucks, mostly because of my daily commute being stuck in stop and go traffic. When I get out on the open road, I have gotten 22 mpg.


Favorite Features

XM radio, heated seats, cavernous cargo area, 4wd


Suggested Improvements

Beefier engine

2010 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

If you want to be left on the side of the road waiting for a tow, purchase this SUV. The first time the engine misfired and broke down the truck was 3 months old. We thought nothing of it, but the 2nd time it was 3 years old so we investigated and found out about the class actions suite. (Google Honda Pilot class action suite misfire) Nothing like being on a road trip to the north for Christmas fully packed with a baby and a small child and breaking down in rural PA. After the truck was repaired and Christmas was over I drove it straight to a Ford dealer and traded it for new Explorer. I will never purchase another Honda.


Suggested Improvements

Replace engine

2010 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We drove every midsize SUV there was available and it came down to the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot. The Toyota drove better, more like a car, but it only seated 7 people. The Honda was closer to real 4WD (still not real but close) and seated 8...a real 8 full sized adults. Some that seated 7 really only seated 5 adults and 2 kids in the 3rd row. In the end we needed the full 8 seats and while the interior does not have much style to it, it is functional. I wish I would have waited another year as Bluetooth became a standard interior feature that was only available on the Touring in 2010. Other than that this is a great midsize SUV to own.
