Poor Design for the Money

Before purchasing a 2010 Honda Pilot, I would urge a sense of caution!! I purchased mine in Aug 2009. Within 2 weeks I wished I hadn't. There is a terrible dash reflection on the driver's side window that if the sun is in the right position obliterates the side view mirror. To check the oil is just plain poor design. The access to the dipstick cable really is dismal. You can't even see the port to reinsert the "stick" so you need to have your fingers go directly to the port to guide the "stick" to assure that it goes in and avoids getting any outside grime into the oil. To get oil in the fill port-really poor. If you're on the road without a funnel you'll get a 1/2 qt in for every qt.
Stop selling the car and truly "Design" the vehicle. Honda has crossed the line in "Value Engineering" this vehicle.
