2010 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Experienced SUV owners: Pilot,Sequoia, Land Cruiser, Xterra, Outback, Forester, Suburban, Explorer, Commander. We 'thoroughly' examined (down to where the jack is stored and the type of spare tire)and road tested the Pilot(on a variety of surfaces and at various speeds). We like its Jeepesque squared off look. Excellent seats. Driving position very good on long trips. Nice layout of controls. Great storage. Excellent center console design and shifter location. Good mileage in aggressive driving: 18+ combined city, country and mountain roads not worrying about keeping the ECO light on. Quiet. Very stable and neutral driving dynamics for an SUV. Tracks well on the highway.
Comfort. Secure handling in snow, slush, etc. Solid feeling and quality build.
Well, we tried to come up with something...Nit picking: Offer, as an option, the EX without a third row? We don't mind it, but rarely use it. Not a real factor one way or the other in our purchase decision, although it may add to resale value.
