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


This is our first new car since 2000. We already have a commuting vehicle (Civic) and needed something with decent hauling capacity and a little more room and comfort to tool around in. Honda Pilot fit the bill. The size, gas mileage, performance, and price all fit perfectly for us. The leather interior is wonderful. The features were right on the money. We were ready to find a nice 05 at a discount but the new interior and exterior styling really pulled us into the 06. Still breaking it in so we haven't pushed the engine but it certainly gets going when it needs to. Already had a chance to use the VSA system (Warning: SUVs are not as nimble as coupes;). Worked like a charm.

Best Features

Maintenance minder seems like a nice feature. Absolutely love that they included XM Radio standard on the EXLs. I would never have tried it otherwise. After the 3 month free trial is up we are considering subscribing.

Worst Features

Would love if I didn't have to slam the liftgate closed. A couple of times it hasn't closed all the way and the warning lights would go on and off as I drove. The 4Runner's liftgate is pulled closed mechanically which means you don't have to slam it. That would be a "nice-to-have".
