2010 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Great driving vehicle, good 4WD performance, and great features. Seating very good, massive car audio(so many features), and good MPG for a 4WD suv are among some of the top features. Engine performance is good - I'm willing to take the hit on performance for MPG (especially today with $$ for fuel). Would recommend a Pilot and/or purchase another if I need to buy another vehicle. Purchased 2010 4WD EX-L w/RES in late May 2010 for $31,600 plus TTL (new 2011 pilot models were available, no diff in 2010 vs. 2011, that I found).
Good MPG for a 4WD SUV, drive 65mph and under and I get 24-26 MPG, drive 55-60 mph get 27 MPG. I'm willing to the
fit/finish - not true to typical honda quality. Rear 12 v accessory plug non-op, had to get it fixed at dealer. Should include 3rd row floor mat, must purchase sep.
