2003 Honda Pilot EX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The ONLY thing I would change about my
Pilot is the second and third row seats.
If the second row was adjustable then
the third row would be more usable. Fr
large adults, the second row center can
become uncomfortable after riding a
while because it is not as padded as
the rest of the second row seating
positions.
I have been impressed by the quality
of the interior. Nothing was fixed
except a fuse and one dome light which
did not work correctly. I would buy it
again.
I hope if they fix the second seat to
be adjustable that they offer the "fix'
to present car owners.


Best Features

Drives like a car not a truck or SUV. Handles good in traffic. Like all the outlets for electronics


Worst Features

Second row seat center needs more padding Second row seat needs to adjust one or two positions more for third row room.

2003 Honda Pilot LX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent vehicle. I understand a lot
of people like bold styling than
bland. But it's really not ugly, just
bland. You will notice its overall
solid feel. I like the fact that it's
based on MDX and Odyssey. Hopefully,
it should enjoy a great resale value as
well.


Best Features

Lots of room 3rd row seat that folds split flat Dual A/C Great steering


Worst Features

Too heavy Brakes need adjustment according to weight Better gas mileage Better Audio system Keyless entry

2003 Honda Pilot EX AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had my Pilot for about 2 months and
4000 miles. Good ride, lots of room
and good performance. Fuel economy has
been good, about 18-19 mpg during drive
to work and with bikes and cargo
carrier attached, about 20 on long
trips without extra stuff (not sure
what other people expect from a 4400 lb
SUV, better than I ever got with my
Jeep). Good power and acceleration.
Not flashy but good looking vehicle.
Got fog lights, running boards, towing
package, cross bars and rear mud flaps
added and paid about $1200 over MSRP
(about $2200 worth of extras).


Best Features

Good on gas for size, lots of room, typical good Honda vehicle.


Worst Features

3rd row OK for small kids only, maybe sliding 2nd row seat. Better placement for gear shift lever. Roll down rear window so you can carry long items without leaving hatch open. Maybe a V8 option with higher towing capacity.

Review

Best ride for a full size SUV, great
gas mileage. Very comfortable all the
way around. After having owned a Ford
Explorer I feel like I moved into a
luxury vehicle.


Best Features

The smooth ride and total comfort of the seats.


Worst Features

None, they got it right the first time around.
