2011 Honda Pilot Touring 4dr SUV 4WD w/Nav, Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Sold my 1999 Pathfinder and purchased the Pilot.
It's larger in every dimension, has full time 4WD, has 70 more horsepower, is heavier, and still manages to get better gas mileage!
Car has great unique style inside and out, decent power, good braking (Edmunds review is off the mark), and a usable 3rd row - boxy design allows for headroom. No middle hump and extra width provides for 3 across comfortably.
Drove on vacation 250 miles to destination (highway) - got 26+ MPG. Tire pressure monitoring saved me twice.
Second row windows roll all the way down, optional built in sunshades are great, flash drive for music, hands free cell phone interface works well (clear).
Technology - IPOD/Flash music, DVD player, NAV system, hands free phone.
Interior space, auto hatch open/close, storage - especially recessed niche under floor at rear - lots of room for items that you don't want shifting around.
Full time 4WD.
Rework dash mounted shifter - gets in the way.
Info section of console not intuitive to work.
