2009 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased Pilot after looking at a lot of competition. Our last Honda (88 Accord) had 250K miles when we sold it and was still going strong. We have taken this vehicle on several trips, including one to the mountains, and have averaged 20.5 MPG overall in 7700 miles, and have seen 25 MPG on short trips. The wife loves all of the places to store stuff. I wish the tires were quieter, and the RES allowed for the kids to listen to a different radio station than the driver. The hard plastics inside scratch much too easily, and the passenger seat doesn't have enough thigh support. Rear camera should show up on display instead of mirror. Need better cushioning under cargo area carpet.

Best Features

Ride, convenience, Satellite radio, storage, 110v outlet in center console.

Worst Features

Premium Radio is weak on features and sound. Hard plastics scratch easily. Passenger seat needs more adjustments. Storage area carpet is marked easily by sharp objects, need more padding. RES has second radio tuner for back seat, quieter tires.
