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


I would not recommend the Honda Pilot to anyone that intends on keeping the vehicle for a long time. My transmission went at 101,000 miles and the maintenance had always been done by the book. Looking at $2500 to replace transmission. Once repaired, I will make sure that it belongs to someone else within a few days. Will not buy another Honda. I have owned a couple of Honda Accords and they were good cars. The Pilot Sux. Wanted something bigger because I am a disabled veteran with leg injuries and needed the extra leg room. If you but a Pilot, you had better buy the triple super duper extended warranty with it, because you will have transmission problems.

Best Features

None over any other SUV of its size...

Worst Features

Better transmission, or, extend warranty to cover transmission and drive train to 100,000 miles.
