2008 Honda Pilot Value Package 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I recently leased a 08 Pilot for my wife after seeing a great lease price. Our 06 Chevy trailblazer was coming off lease and although the Chevy was excellent, we opted for Honda due to the deal. The gas mileage claims are true. A 4,500lb., 4 wheel drive Chevy with 291 HP!, gets better mileage! The Honda will be in the shop 4 times due to the drive Line vibe issue someone else wrote about. Keep in mind I have been driving GM'S mostly, and they are much smoother, a lot quieter and have knocked Honda and other foreign cars off the initial and long term quality charts recently. This certainly is not like my 1998 Accord EX coupe. I miss my Chevy. Honda does have better interior

Best Features

Interior, engine Door thunk when closing

Worst Features

Dump the Bridgestones. They caused a shimmy on my Infiniti as well. Dealer put Michelins on to correct issue. Hoping that solves Honda shimmy issue. Benchmark GM to get better MPGs, ride and quiet. Hood is way out of alignment with drivers side fender. looks like 1970's era US quality.
