Pros outweigh cons

Vehicle
2011 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Pilot sometimes hesitates at highway speeds due to complexity of interaction between cylinder changes, transmission and torque converter. Pilot had been on lot for six months with 200 miles of test drives. Body had several minor dings which dealer fixed. Interior had several minor dings on hard plastic which could not be fixed. Tailgate is slightly off center. I purchased the Pilot with a $5000 discount and 1.9% financing.
Favorite Features
Nice styling, good handling, smooth suspension, quiet. Unlike Edmunds review, I find the acceleration and braking fully adequate for this size vehicle.
Suggested Improvements
Engine alternates between 3, 4 and 6 cylinders which should increase MPG. I traded in a 2004 Pilot that always used 6 cylinders and the 2004 MPG was as good as the 2011. Alternating cylinder changes can be felt. 2004 drove without hesitation at highway speeds but the 2011 handles better in the mountains. My 2004 was an excellent vehicle and my wife's 2011 CRV is excellent. The 2011 Pilot is good.
