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


Leased my pilot the first year out, and will never do that again. I have been unhappy with this car since the first month I bought it. There are things that you don't realize in your 10- minute test drive. My biggest complaint is the extremely poor design of the driver seat -it leans back instead of supporting your head,it protrudes behind your shoulders, and there is no lower back support. I get back aches whenever I drive more than 20 minutes. Also, very little leg room for us long-legged drivers. Other problems I've had: struts were replaced after 2 years, shifts roughly going uphill, loud squeaking when backing up,front air-vents won't stay stationary. Can't wait to turn it in!

Best Features

Reliability - haven't had any major engine problems.

Worst Features

Improve comfortability of seats, telescoping steering wheel would be nice, improve quality of interior design- it's "plastic" and cheap looking.
