Disappointed by Mileage
By SteveinPA on
Vehicle2010 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewBought new EX-L 4wd 2 mos ago. Was a compromise-- basically bought it because it was a foot shorter than other 7-8 seaters (Traverse, CX-9) so much better fit in garage. And I have had good experience with Hondas. I had a CRV previously and got the epa highway milage in my mixed driving, so I was hoping for the same with the pilot. Unfortunately I have been averaging 17 mpg, less than the 18 epa figure for mixed driving. This is the same engine they have in the v-6 accord, so they know how to tune it for better mileage, unfortunately it seems the engine is too small for such a large vehicle and must be tuned to suck gas to make the vehicle go. Acceleration is slow in any event.
Best FeaturesRoomy, shorter than competitors so fits in garage.
Worst FeaturesBetter mileage, better acceleration.
