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


We've been happy with our Pilot. We're hooked on the XM radio, love the dual zone climate controls and are very impressed with the overall room of the interior. We were looking forward to having the class 3 trailer hitch, but were sorely disappointed with the fact that just the Honda trailer wire harness is $181 dollars for a 2 foot harness under the bumper(?!). Even more disappointed that the connector under the bumper is a goofy connector that NOBODY carries yet. Happy over all though. We'll just wait to buy a harness from someone not trying to rip off a customer for an overpriced set of wires. Happy with the handling, but our Pilot pulls to the right on level ground at constant speed

Best Features

Love the XM radio and sound system. Interior space with the rear seats folded down is great. Love the dual zone climate controls in the front and the separate climate control for the rear passengers.

Worst Features

Extend that trailer harness under the bumper another 2 feet so it reaches the hitch mount. $180 bucks for a 2 foot wiring harness? LAME! For the money the Pilot costs, you could include the harness and keep your customers happy. Also, figure out why so many Pilots pull to the right. Ours does too.
