2006 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased at the end of the model year and got about as good of a deal as you can get on a Pilot. We've owned a few SUV's prior to the Pilot - all were more off-road capable, truck-based SUV's. Bottom line - the Pilot is perfect for us. The car-like handling, fuel consumption and responsiveness trump the abstract notion of off-road capabilities. This a family hauler. After comparing a lot of vehicles, the Pilot had more usable space than anything in its class. The interior is simple, but very nice. Hard to beat in the sub $35k class. Hard to justify additional $8k for MDX.

Best Features

True 8 passenger seating. Fit and finish. Value. Responsive, but can achieve 24mpg on hwy. Seamless AWD. Space.

Worst Features

High-end audio option. MP3/iPod auxiliary jack. Bluetooth/hands-free link.
