i bought pilot over highlander only because of my concern over the untested toyota's syncro transmission. Pilot has some troubling flaws. lots of highway wind noise, grinding/pulsating in anti lock brakes at right front upon turning (dealer says normal), gas makes loud sloshing sound when tank full (is that why the tank was not full at test ride), upgraded radio has volume limited and mine pulled to the right off the lot which dealer blamed on curvature of the road. But have owned hondas in the past, and looking to own this car long term. time will tell if i made a good investment.
my first six cylinder. nice room for a big man and his gear plus friends and family.
better fit and finish in interior. still need a design tweak to match highlanders style. example, my bland white paint no match for the eye popping reflective shade toyota uses. could you add a inside release for the rear hatch not just the top glass?
