2010 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I've been a loyal honda consumer for years!!
Although I love my pilot I am very disappointed on the quality of the interior. The center arm rest completely tore. I mean, I paid extra for leather interior, come to find out that center arm rest is absolutely not leather but a super thin plastic material. The door arm rest also has torn. Same cheap material. I don't get it. I'm not an abusive driver or car owner. I am very careful with my cars. Very disappointed.
Better quality for complete interior, not just some parts.

I have the Pilot EX-L w/RES. I don't have any children, but I like to do a lot of whitewater trips and I bought the Pilot because I can sleep in it, carry a lot of people for shuttle and carry a lot of boats. I have equipped it with a Thule rack that fits onto the already beefy luggage rack bars. I'm thinking the RES will come in handy on boring car trips. I've had it for 8 months and am loving the comfort and having just weathered 2 big snow storms, I can attest it is a beast in the snow, considering it doesn't have true 4wd. Mileage sucks, mostly because of my daily commute being stuck in stop and go traffic. When I get out on the open road, I have gotten 22 mpg.

If you want to be left on the side of the road waiting for a tow, purchase this SUV.
The first time the engine misfired and broke down the truck was 3 months old. We thought nothing of it, but the 2nd time it was 3 years old so we investigated and found out about the class actions suite.
(Google Honda Pilot class action suite misfire)
Nothing like being on a road trip to the north for Christmas fully packed with a baby and a small child and breaking down in rural PA. After the truck was repaired and Christmas was over I drove it straight to a Ford dealer and traded it for new Explorer. I will never purchase another Honda.

We drove every midsize SUV there was available and it came down to the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot.
The Toyota drove better, more like a car, but it only seated 7 people.
The Honda was closer to real 4WD (still not real but close) and seated 8...a real 8 full sized adults.
Some that seated 7 really only seated 5 adults and 2 kids in the 3rd row.
In the end we needed the full 8 seats and while the interior does not have much style to it, it is functional.
I wish I would have waited another year as Bluetooth became a standard interior feature that was only available on the Touring in 2010.
Other than that this is a great midsize SUV to own.
Still running great and no major issues. We had a reading light burn out but other than that no problems at all. The only downside of this vehicle in 2016 is that it is just a year or two too old to have technology like bluetooth. That being said if you want a pseudo 4-wheel drive vehicle you will have no complaints with the 2010 Honda Pilot. I say pseudo only because it does not have locking axles like say a Jeep, but the 4-wheel drive is plenty sufficient for the average driver who may occasionally need some extra traction in grass, mud, ice or snow.

We bought new in 12/2009, so have had for 3.5 years and only have 30k miles on, so mostly city driving.
Never been in the shop except for oil and tires.
Tires are 60k Michelins that wore out at 28k, but Michelin prorated replacement.
It is a well thought out car when compared to competitors and much better value than the competitors.
Engine is adequate, but certainly not a V8.
Mileage is a little below represented, but likely 10% Ethanol in Gas is largely to blame. Thanks government.
Get 21 Hwy and 16 City. Very stable on Hwy and great in snow.
Third row is great and large carrying capacity when both rows down. Would definitely purchase again.
Very roomy and efficiently laid out. Great for a family of 5-6. Great for trips. DVD system great.
Put in a better stereo system. For an 'upgraded' system, this is a feeble effort. Honda use to put in Bose systems--what happened?? Navigation average at best.
