Great SUV, mpg not even close
By Al on


2010 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We traded in our Chevy Trailblazer EXT hoping to get an SUV with better gas mileage. We have put on aprox. 1000 miles and only have been getting 11 mpg city and 14-15 mpg highway (on a trip to the coast). We drive with the ECO light on and don't heavy foot it. The dealership service guys have told us to "hang in there" and wait for the motor to "break in". I am very discouraged with the mpg. Otherwise, it is a very nice vehicle, nice ride, nice handling, low road noise, and very comfortable. The bigger test will be this spring as I tow our 3,600 pound boat. I am hoping it will do ok going over the passes to Central Oregon and the Oregon Coast. Overall, I am pleased with the SUV.

Best Features

Ride, large cabin, EX features, "Spunk", off-road stability.

Worst Features

Very, Very, Very poor mpg (not even close to the rated 16-22 mpg. Could have "bought a V8" to get this gas mileage.
