2009 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


My second Pilot, upgraded from the 2004. Although I love Honda's reliability, the quality of this Pilot is a bit of a disappointment. Driven for almost 2 years now. I have had issues with the window's rattling from the start. Very annoying and they have been unable to fix. Seat fabric in the EX is not easy to clean and can stain. Seats squeak in the back, seat belts rattle on plastic if not straight. Overall doesn't feel as well made as my "04." It is fun to drive and I feel very safe in it. I love the large size, fits everything. Gas mileage isn't great but I didn't expect it to be. Due to rattles and squeaks, will probably be my last Honda. Need better quality on the inside.

Best Features

XM, folding seats, hidden compartment in trunk. iPod capability

Worst Features

Get rid of all the plastic in the interior! Pay more attention to quality so all the squeaks and rattles won't appear.
