2009 Honda Pilot Touring 4dr SUV 4WD w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have had my '09 pilot, touring, 4WD since May 2009 now. We love the interior space with 8 seats. We do not like the plastic on dash board and the whitish center console backing. The Handling can use a lot of work but it's a Honda, I guess they think that I will be spending another $20k to make it look/feel like a BMW anyways so why bother. :-) I really did not think that their EPA mileage will be that much off. It says 16/20/18 (city/highway/combined avg), but I am getting just about 250 miles for a full tank of gas, that's about 12/MPG. WOW!!!!

Best Features

You name it, it has it! My fav comment to anyone who asks about the "touring pkg".

Worst Features

Replace the hard plastic on doors/dash/center console with padded material. Replace or give options for the white plastic under audio buttons. THE WORST OF ALL!!!!! GIVE at least CLOSE TO what the actual MPG will be. VERY DECEPTIVE!!!!
