Perfect Family Vehicle

2011 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Bought this vehicle for my wife and she loves it! The mileage on the highway is decent but the mileage in the city should be better. There is plenty storage space available which is great with 2 kids. There is plenty of room for an adult next to the 2 car seats in the 2nd row. The 3rd row can be tight if you don't slide the 2nd row forward slightly. The boxy styling isn't the prettiest but it is the most functional, allowing plenty of space in the cargo area even with the 3rd row up. Panic braking distances could be improved but brake pedal feel is excellent. I took it on a long trip the day after purchasing and it is very comfortable, although the HVAC controls take a while to get used to.
Storage space is plentiful. Sliding 2nd row seat is a great feature. 4 LATCH attachments for car seats. Roomy 3rd row. XM Radio.
Sunroof on EX models would be nice as well as a place to stick loose change in. Move or add air vents in the second row to the pillars or roof so rear- facing car seats get air flow. I expected better gas mileage in the city.
