The Pilot doesn't disappoint. We test drove the Veracruz and Traverse and found the Pilot the best of everything for the money. We don't agree with Edmunds assessment. The options and luxury for the price is not comparable with the Chevy and the Hyandai. We've already taken a road trip with three kids and two grandparents and the Pilot performed better than we could have hoped. The ride is great and it handles very well.
Seating for 8 and the ride. We like the exterior (Black) look of the Pilot too. Added running boards, bug guard, and door edge guards. Looks great!
Gas mileage should be improved but with its weight not sure how you accomplish that?
