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


Review

I can't say enough about the Pilot. It
meets all our needs and then some. It
is an urban vehicle and a traveling
vehicle. It is comfortable on long
drives and nimble enough for city
driving. The amenities are plentiful
for cost and the quality is great.
There are a few minor problems with
some of the Pilots out there according
to other owners (mine seems to have
less than others)but for a first year
model, it is the least problematic than
any domestic vehicle I have owned.
Honda has won me over with the Pilot.


Best Features

Overall ride, comfort, handling, room, versatility.


Worst Features

Honda could have offered a sunroof, heated seats in America, better tires,traction control, positional second row seats. Additionally a better position for the shift selector.

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


Review

I'm prorating the yearly mileage as I
have only got 5000 on the odometer at
this point. The Pilot still has the
fit and finish it did when I drove it
off the lot. From a very unpractical
point of view, my favorite "feature" of
this rig is that I don't see myself
coming and going when I'm on the road.
It's nice being a little unique.


Best Features

Smart interior design, comfortable seating, and spacious.


Worst Features

none

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


Review

I tested every SUV in its class
(Highlander, 4 Runner, Envoy,
Rendevous) and the Pilot was the
superior value. It is a great vehicle.
Everyone that rides in it comments on
how smooth and comfortable it is.


Best Features

Power seats, cup holders, cell phone holder.


Worst Features

The garage door opener buttons are too small and should be lit so they can be found easier in the dark. The radio and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel should also be lit for easier use in the dark.
