Disappointing Pilot
By MikeNC on


2007 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


The controls for the 2007 Pilot are not very well designed. It is all too easy to turn the lights on (or off) when using the turn signal. On the other side of the steering wheel the wiper control lever is easily bumped when using the gear shift lever. Highway gas mileage averages around 20 mpg, not the stated 2 4mpg. Be prepared for a bit of price shock when it's time to replace the cabin air filter. The filter can only be removed by dropping the glove box and then removing 6 screws. Changing the filter for the first time requires cutting away a plastic bar. The cost to have the dealer replace the cabin air filter is upwards of $130 for parts and labor. I would not buy another Honda Pilot.

Best Features

Comfortable ride, decent performance, rock-solid reliability.

Worst Features

Fix controls Improve gas mileage Improve handling Make cabin air filter easier to replace Make 1st row rear seats fold flat (or make them easily removed)
