2008 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV 4WD w/Rear Entertainment System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Driving in the Canadian winter is not fun, yet the Pilot, even at -45 degrees C runs fine. The traction assist will catch you unaware on ice corners and might cause you to over-correct. The get-up-and-go on ice is fantastic! Cold starts without plugging in are no problem, and the engine warms up very quickly. Feild of view for a tall person is limited by the side pillars I find myself leaning forward and back with a lot of head movement while checking intersections.

Best Features

The variability of the cargo space. This vehicle has great pickup.

Worst Features

The entertainment system controls for front and back are confusing. The base is too loud in the back and can not be balanced comfortably for all seat locations. Coffee cup holder is really poorly located for the driver!
