2004 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We bought our Pilot brand new in 2/2004 as a "do it all" vehicle. We looked at the Highlander (too expensive & small) and the Forester XT (way fun to drive but alas, too small. We ended up buying the Piolt EX-L. We are impressed with the ride quality and the road manners. A couple of faults have dampened our enthusiasm. The main seal started leaking oil at 55,000 miles. The dealer took care of that under warranty. Driver's side seat- heater went on the blink and burned your tush. This is a known issue with the pilot and the dealer denied that it was a problem. Brake rotors warping & paint job is uneven. Honda could have done better! A tip for Honda, listen to your customers! Don't be arrogant

Ride quality, space utilization, traction in inclement weather.

Worst Features

Paint quality, road noise, larger brake rotors, tune engine for low-end torque, listen to your customers when they bring problems to your attention!
