2010 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The interior is excellent. Vents for even the 3rd row passengers, 3 climate zones (driver, passenger, rear), plenty of cup holders, 3 power outlets, and lots of nooks to hide stuff. The benches are very short though! Not a lot of thigh support. You sit down and almost feel like your legs are dangling. Road noise is a problem also, even though I bought the EX-L which supposedly has thicker glass to cut down on this. Haven't noticed the same pulling to the right that others have (1500 miles driven), and the mileage I get is no where near advertised. I avg. 19 hwy, 16 city. The Pilot is very wimpy on trails, and I have yet to take it out on the sand (I'm a little scared to do so).
3 climate zones, seat warmers, lots of places to put stuff. Easy to manipulate cargo area to increase space and/or passenger capacity.
Longer benches, road noise, not enough stuff standard. No towing wires, crossbars, running boards, or even a cover for the hitch. Also have noticed a clicking noise with the windshield wipers and when I step on the brake. Mediocre off-road performance.
