2005 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


First Honda and switched from Amer. cars due to all the repair problems we experienced with them. We have really enjoyed the car. Very reliable. Good ride (suspension) considering it is a SUV. A few weird electrical quirks, but nothing to repair yet! I have had much worse. Uncomfortable to reach radio controls from seat, not ergonomically friendly. Most interior features very basic considering price range. Gas mileage decent and has great acceleration. Some occasional shifting confusion from trans can make for rough shifting. I had checked and told no prob, just the way it is. At this point, I would consider another and definetly like Honda.

Best Features

Third row seat. Acceleration. Good suspension considering its a SUV. Decent mileage.

Worst Features

For the price range, lacks some common amenities like dash light adjustment, seek/scan on radio, auto head lights, compass, etc. Ergonomics of reaching the radio on dash are not good. Front Head rests need new design. Seat comfort is fair. Needs Improved features for this price range.
