With the birth of our son we had to upgrade and get a family vehicle. I had Honda's before but I wanted a change to something different. Looked at the CX-9 and we liked it a lot, too bad Mazda has crummy leasing programs. I wanted no part of an unsafe boring looking Highlander and all the problems Toyota has nowadays. JGC was close but American reliability is no way close to the Japanese lets be real. The Pilot is safe. That is all that matters right now to me for our son, Safety. Cargo area is great, it really does swallow up stuff. Ride is comfortable and gas mileage is adequate it is a 4X4. People who buy cars who worry about gas mileage go hug a tree and get a hybrid. Pilot=Family Safe.
Great leasing programs through AHFC. You cant go wrong with a Honda. Plus the $1500 waiver at the end that eats up the costs of returning it. Winner hands down. Wife is happy and son is safe and that is all that matters to me. Happy wife Happy life!!!!
