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


The Pilot EX was a total joy to drive until the tire pressure sensor simply has its own mind after 1 yr. But it's not the worst. Handling-wise it is OK. In snowy, icy and heavy rain condition, however, I only get 70% control of the car when driving 35 miles per hour. I consistently got overtaken by other cars as I drove on interstate. Different tires, same result. The worst: The vehicle simply lost control when I was avoiding an aggressive pass-on-the-right Subaru. My Pilot skated around on the (dry) interstate a few seconds at 60mph until it rolled over into the embankment and totalled. None of the airbags went off for no explanation. I was lucky to survive it.

Best Features

The backup sensor is indispensible. Decent seating space even it has 3 rows.

Worst Features

What happened to the airbags that are supposed to save life? And the tire pressure sensor needs some work. Finally, the cargo space is pathetic when 3rd row seat is up. It's useless when I have a family of 6 need to go take a flight.
